Fighting to Protect Your Parental Rights

Fathers' Rights

For many years, it was assumed by the courts and the public at large that minor children were best left to live with and to be raised by their mother. But over time, the courts have realized that the involvement of both parents is critically important in the healthy upbringing of young children. Because of the duty to foster the relationship between the children, the mother and father are now included in the marriage settlement agreements and court orders of child custody.

The "best interest of the child" standard now permeates the law in regard to custody arrangements. The courts, psychologists, and family counselors agree that a solid foundation for a child's familial upbringing should be grounded in having a relationship with both parents where possible.

Our attorney works closely with fathers to prove that they are able to properly provide for their children by providing:

  • A safe and stable home environment
  • Supportive relationship with the child's needs as the highest priority
  • Dependable financial wellbeing
  • A positive influence for the child's development

At the Tampa divorce law offices of Catherine W. Real, P.A., Attorney Real is fully aware of the difficulty fathers encounter when trying to stay connected to and involved in the lives of their children.

Equal Time Sharing Laws in Florida

The governor of the state of Florida signed a bill that changed the nature of alimony and time sharing. It now requires that fathers should be assumed to have the right to equal time sharing of their minor children. Every case, however, will still be under scrutiny of the judge and may bear a different outcome based on circumstances.
