He Said/She Said: Joe

He Said/She Said: Joe

Joe Cordell, Co-Founder of his company with his wife, is an attorney in Missouri who represents the largest domestic relations firm in the U.S., with a presence in 42 states, 300 attorneys, and who represents about 96% male clients. Joe maintains dadsdivorce.commensdivorce.com, and mensrights.com. There are helpful resources such as a YouTube channel, Tips to Be a Better Co-Parent, and a Back to School Co-Parenting guide.Some ideas that emerged from the episode include the following.

In the 19th Century men were favored in awarding custody because they earned money and had the means to support children. Whereas, women generally did not because they did not work outside the home. 

Divorce is a messy business and that is why all the major religions discourage the practice. Men in their late 40s early 50s are vulnerable to having an affair, often in the workplace, and although stereotypes may be fading it was a common occurrence.

In Kentucky with 50-50 parenting there has been less conflict and fewer cases to include attorneys. Sexual abuse is less of a weapon today than in the 1990s but an Order of Protection is also used, is effective, and easier to obtain since it requires less evidence. The physical size of men works against them and Protection is easy to believe as a result.
