top    About Us

Father's United for Equal Rights Foundation (FUERF) is a nonprofit self-help support organization of men and women who are concerned about equality and fairness in the divorce process and the attendant issues of alimony, custody of minor children, child support, visitation, and property disposition. We are particularly concerned with the adversarial nature of divorce law in Maryland, and especially the harmful results of this process on children.

FUERF in Maryland was formed in the 1970's due to the shameful and gross inequities being experienced by men in the implementation of Maryland divorce law by local judges and masters. Unfortunately, the need for our organization still exists today. Many, many, more changes in the law and the courts are required before true justice can be achieved.

We are a self-help group of non-lawyers. Senior FUERF members aren't lawyers, but we've heard many questions and answers at past FUERF meetings, and many of us have spent too much time entangled in family law ourselves.

If you wish to help us in our goal of fairness for all in the divorce process, including the children of the divorce, we would be pleased to receive your contribution of any size.

top    Women Members

FUERF has always had women members, and early-on, a woman officer. Usually they're father supportive sisters, moms, woman friends, (new) wives, step-parents, and grandparents.  We are a fathers oriented self-help group. We're more focused on family law issues as faced by men. Enough said.
