Why Did I Become a Father’s Rights Attorney?
Brian L. Jackson, Esq.
I went into law wanting to do something to make a difference. There is a fundamental misunderstanding of the value of fathers in the lives of their children. I grew up in a situation where my parents split at a very young age, and it was extremely contentious between my parents when it came to me and my sister.
I did not get to see a lot of my dad, and I know how that felt growing up. As an attorney, I have had plenty of opportunities to see what can happen when you have a child who has two good parents, and one parent is cut out of the picture.
It is unfortunate that mothers are highly prized, while fathers are all too often treated as if they are disposable. I know fathers are not disposable. Fathers are just as valuable to the child as the mother. Children benefit from knowing both parents. Unless one parent is simply unfit, children deserve to have both parents in their lives.
When the parents are fit, both parents should be in the life of the children. Because, from the child’s perspective, that is their dad. That is their mom. Children deserve to have their parent in their life, regardless of the feelings of the adults.
I went into father’s rights with the idea of fighting for that, fighting for the father’s right to be in his child’s life, but also fighting for the right of the child to know their father – to have that positive adult role model in their lives. Unfortunately, there just are not a lot of voices willing to speak up for fathers. Mothers, yes. Fathers, not so much. This is what led me to becoming an advocate for fathers’ rights.
