Washington Times - Letter to the Editor

Joseph Rodrigue
Washington Times
July 13, 2005

Dear Editor,

In your article "Custody's high stakes," domestic abuse attorney Joan Meier claims that fathers who are batterers are twice as likely to contest a custody decision as nonbatterers.

Her comment does not accurately depict the character of custody-seeking fathers as a group but reflects a minority of cases within the group. The greatest determining factor in whether a father will try to contest a custody decision is his ability to afford the additional legal fees.
