Helping Florida fathers with child custody arrangements

When it comes to divorce, the future of any children who were born during the marriage is usually the most important factor to consider. Everyone involved in the divorce wants what is best for the child, but most people believe that this includes them being actively involved in the child's life. Unfortunately, it is sometimes impossible for children to regularly see both of their parents after a divorce, which is why some parents struggle to reach an agreement for child custody and visitation.

Statistics indicate that more women received sole custody of children far more often than men in the past, which has led many to believe that the courts favor mothers when it comes to child custody. This may have been true in the past, but thanks to modern studies and perceptions, courts recognize that having both parents involved in a child's life is far better for the development of the child. Still, that does not mean that fathers can take a custody hearing lightly.

It is likely that Florida courts will do all that they can to include fathers in a custody or visitation arrangement, but if you truly want to get the custody you deserve, you will need to fight for it. There is a distinct difference between seeing your child only on holidays and seeing your child every weekend, and that difference could be the case you present during a custody hearing.

When the issue of child custody is raised during the divorce proceedings, you should discuss with your attorney how you are going to demonstrate your parenting skills. By proving what a steady and positive influence you have been in your child's life up until the divorce, you can guarantee that you will be allowed to remain such a positive and steady influence after the divorce.
