Chicago, LA, June 15, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- On Thursday, June 16, nationally renowned family law attorney, and celebrated Fathers’ Rights author, Jeffery M. Leving will appear on the You & Me morning show, (broadcast on WCIU-Channel 26, at 6:30 a.m.), discussing legal tips for divorced dads for Fathers’ Day.
Many children face emotional abandonment due to their father’s absence on Fathers’ Day when fathers are instead honored on this important day. This leaves many children with deep feelings of rejection and no dad for Fathers’ Day. Tragically, many of these children have not been abandoned but rather their loving fathers have been kicked to the curb.
Many fathers experience parenting obstacles during a divorce such as not having proper funds to obtain a lawyer to fight for their basic paternal rights. Their children can be left feeling rejected by their caring father, when there was no abandonment. Leving’s book Fathers’ Rights reports that children who live absent their biological fathers are, on average, at least two to three times more likely to be poor, to use drugs, to experience education, health, emotional and behavioral trouble. A father’s absence is a harmful trend that needs to be reversed.
This Jeffery Leving feature will address issues on paternal rights and give insight on how fathers can better connect with their children on Fathers’ Day as well as every other day. Fathers’ Day isn’t just one day, it’s a lifelong journey and Jeffery Leving will work tirelessly to ensure all fathers can be there for their children.
Attorney Jeffery M. Leving has been named one of “America's Best Lawyers” by Forbes Radio and is the country's leading authority on fathers' rights. He has dedicated more than 30 years to strengthening healthy families and improving outcomes for children. He founded the Fatherhood Educational Institute, which provides critical parenting skills to fathers and seeks to eliminate father absence. Leving's latest book, How to be a Good Divorced Dad, received praise from President Barack Obama, and was endorsed by Archbishop Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
