36 - Is Family Court Biased?

For years, many people have said that Family Court is biased towards women.  Lately, women who feel that fathers get "joint custody,” even "shared parenting," no matter what, feel that it is has become biased in favour of men.   In this episode of the Ontario Family Law Podcast (the first available in both video and audio formats), Certified Specialist in Family Law, John Schuman, explores the issue of what, besides the law, influences judges when they make decisions in Family Law cases. People often lose cases for reasons that are not always related to their gender.  Understanding how to get a judge’s sympathy is critical to “winning’ in Family Court.
