RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

In courtrooms across the country, fathers are increasingly being denied custody of their children in favor of mothers, despite changing demographics.

More men are becoming stay-at-home dads and more women are part of the workforce. Relationships between dads and their children are changing dramatically, but when it comes to divorce and custody the courts haven't caught up, with men usually being cut out of the equation.

In a divorce involving kids, moms are usually given custody because laws are stacked against decent dads, reports WOIO-TV.
