When choosing a divorce attorney, do male attorneys

When choosing a divorce attorney, do male attorneys generally have better courtroom results than female attorneys? I read most judges are white males..is there unspoken gender bias in the courtroom even though the justice is supposed to be blind? Is there chance for a better result also more likely with an attorney who appears older or has had previous relationship with the judges in the county?

It is my primary residence. I understand the in California, if ex-spouse has not resided on land since divorce, she cannot demand access, or to reside here. Need to know Hawaii law..JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Divorce was basically amicable. I left her on Title so she would inherit it directly if/when I died. All $ equity is mine, specified in divorce decree. We are building small living unit on property. I want to know if I am "doing her a favor" by letting her live there, OR if she has an absolute RIGHT to demand to do so. Thanks...

My ex-husband who is an attorney, cut child support, based

My ex-husband who is an attorney, cut child support, based on our Separation Agreement, which stipulates if a child marries that's grounds for emancipation, so he did reduce after her date of marriage 1/16/17. However, he petitioned in 2012, to reduce child support for said child above. I was helped by a Consumer Protection lawyer, here on this site, but I need an attorney that specializes in either family law or post-divorce law. I need legal advise as how to proceed., as I don't know how long and he's not required to tell me but I found out in in March 2017, that he is unemployed and although the 2012 petition he brought against me I appealed, and for my other daughter the family court referee stated in her appeal answer that child shall get certain amount until emancipated. So, he's trying to use the Separation Agreement Stipulation, when in 2012 appeal it states clearly all support going forward would be for the child living with me. If I go to court I believe he's in arrears now 3 months and by the time I get my court date and petition am I at risk for losing more money, if he is still unemployed? Or does the petition that states what I get will it still stand? I don't want to spend money to go to court if there is a chance the judge will reduce for said child because he is unemployed?? Or is it,"deadbeat dad," situation, and he truly is in child support arrears for what he cut each month he continues to pay the reduced amount?
