The Ottawa Men's Centre
provides support for fathers who are victims of divorce, parental
alienation and gender bias.
Most fathers complain of legal
negligence, incompetence or lack of empathy. Most men do not have the key
knowledge that is necessary to have in order to establish a vital
client-solicitor or client-attorney relationship. Many men are victims of
an abusive spouse and end up being abused by the person they relied on to
ensure justice for their children.
Most referrals to lawyers have a
financial kickback which means some of the money you pay your lawyer goes
directly to the person who referred you.
The Ottawa Men's Centre has absolutely no financial
arrangement with any lawyer.
We are happy to provide excellent lawyers
with referrals that are earned the hard way, by providing
dedicated passionate advocacy that results in glowing praises from the

Don't expect any discounts from the
lawyers we refer you to. Expect honest accurate billing at a rate
appropriate to the lawyers experience, knowledge, ability, location
If we refer you to a lawyer we
expect you to always keep your account with your lawyer in good standing.
The last thing we need is to have a lawyer complaining we sent them a
client who did not honour his or her part of the contract.
Retaining a attorney is very much
like getting married. Just like marriage, a separation from your lawyer
can be more costly than a divorce. Few men can afford to have a lawyer
screw up their case then change attorneys.
Changing attorneys or changing
lawyers can be a costly painful experience that has many unexpected costs
and prejudice that can be avoided by first obtaining getting an impartial objective knowledgeable
referral to an Attorney from a referrer who has no financial
interest with the attorney.
We are fathers who have already been
through the system and learned by hard experience and many years of
advocacy for fathers and years of providing very successful referrals to fathers across Canada.
Most of our calls come from men in
divorce who have just parted company with a lawyer for a variety of reasons. Most
fathers only discover after a very large amount of money has been spent
that they made a mistake a series of mistakes and ignored a series of
early warning signs before finally realizing they should done some more
legwork before hiring their lawyer.
Choosing the wrong attorney is
easy to do.
Most attorneys are charismatic personalities who
are gifted with golden voices and know how to sell.
Most men don't
discover until the damage is done that their lawyer really believed that
their children were better off in the care of the mother.
That is, the
lawyer or attorney may have consciously or subconsciously held the
traditional bias that children belong with a mother.
In divorce litigation you
learn cannot trust anyone. The person you trust the
least is the person who you need to trust the most.
It is vital that anyone seeking to
"retain a solicitor" or "hire a divorce attorney"
understand how to formulate a practical contract and provide the attorney
/ solicitor or lawyer with plain English instructions that bind each party to an
agreement that that provide a measure of insurance to obtain
the expected services.
The solicitors / attorneys / lawyers
that we refer men to know that there is also an unwritten contract with
the Ottawa Men's Centre which means any substantiated validated complaint
could result in no further referrals.
Attorneys provide an above average standard of professionalism, they
create a demand or requests for their services can make them difficult to

are generally always busy and most of the time their services are in so much demand they
cannot afford the time to take on a new client.

know of several fathers right now who are terminally ill most probably as
a direct result of endless litigation by a vindictive former wife who for
reasons that can be impossible to understand, decided never to let the kids see their dad again.
Obtaining a quality attorney
referral is unlike buying most very expensive items. There is a risk of
irreparable harm that can cause children to grow up on dysfunctional homes
and subsequent generations of children pre-programmed for marriage
