Fathers are gradually gaining more ground on mothers in child custody cases, with some being awarded sole custody of children following a divorce or break up. The trend is proof that men are no longer automatic losers in child custody cases, making it all the more important that males approach such custody battles seriously.
And women also need to understand that they are no longer the automatic favorites in child custody cases. A recent celebrity example is the child custody case between R&B singer Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster. The couple had two children, now ages 3 and 4, after marrying in 2007. Earlier this year, Usher was awarded sole custody of the children.
