SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - July 25, 2016) - Decades of research and studies show that children with active fathers, or who have a father figure actively involved in their lives, have a significantly better chance of success in life. For this reason, the Men's Legal Center is announcing their effort to continue honoring fathers who stand out above the crowd. Dads who go the extra mile, exemplify positive fatherly traits, not necessarily just to their children but to the community as well, with their "Great Dad" Award.

Persons wanting to nominate someone for the "Great Dad" award are encouraged to provide the name and contact information of their nominee -- as well as their own -- along with a brief description of what makes that person a "Great Dad."

The nomination information should be emailed to or mailed to:

Men's Legal Center
Attn: Great Dad
940 C Street
San Diego, CA 92101

Fathers selected for the "Great Dad" Award will be featured on both the Men's Legal Center website and on their social media Facebook and Google+ pages, as well as receive a plaque to commemorate this honor.

"As a society, we cannot underestimate the importance of a father actively involved in the lives of his children," said Senior Attorney Craig Candelore. "The abundance of research clearly shows that the 'dad effect' begins shortly after birth. Children with involved fathers are more emotionally secure and have more confidence. As they mature, they have higher IQs and show more self-direction than their peers who do not have actively involved fathers."

For over 30 years the Men's Legal Center has been committed to providing legal expertise and representation in Family Court in San Diego and its surrounding areas.

The Men's Legal Center understands that everyone needs "effective representation when so much is at stake"
