Divorce & Gender Bias: Fighting Presumptions Against Fathers And Mothers
Myths and stereotypes about men and women are engrained in our society. Some judges tend to favour women during divorce and child custody disputes. The presumption that women are more fit for parenting, or that they require more financial support than men is simply unfair and unjust.
To protect your rights and fight gender bias in Ontario courts, contact Gene C. Colman Family Law Centre. We have assisted countless dads in asserting their fathers’ rights in Toronto and throughout Ontario.
Throughout my matter you kept me informed of my rights and what the courts are ruling in different situations. You were always accessible during the preparation of my case and prior to court appearances.

How Can We Fight Back Against Gender Bias In The Courtroom?
At Gene C. Colman Family Law Centre, we are strong advocates for equal parenting rights, but most of all for children’s rights to fully benefit from each parent’s love, affection and support. We believe it is important to have an impartial decision maker honestly and fairly make judgments regarding family law issues such as child custody, child support and spousal support.
When anyone (man or woman) is affected by a decision that seems to be based upon assumption, myth, bias or appeal, as opposed to actual evidence, we are deviating from a fair justice system. From custody and access issues to spousal support, we must ensure our system is unbiased and incorporates procedural fairness concerning gender roles.
Protecting The Rights Of Parents And Children
At Gene C. Colman Family Law Centre, our legal team is determined to hold all participants responsible for a fair process that is founded by examining evidence and applying the law. The integrity of our judicial system depends on it.
With over 44 years of family law advocacy, that started in law school, as well as comprehensive knowledge and experience in the area of shared equal parenting rights, Gene C. Colman vigorously fights against gender bias in divorce and separation proceedings. He strongly advocates for the idea of equal shared parenting and the right of a child to develop a meaningful relationship with both parents.
