Helping Florida fathers' establish their rights

When it comes to matters of family law, many men suspect that they need all the help they can get to receive fair treatment. Whether or not this suspicion is truly accurate, it certainly does not exist without good reason. Statistics indicate that throughout history, mothers have been awarded sole custody of children more often than fathers; those are facts. Additionally, men are often required to pay spousal support more often and in higher amounts than women.

In nearly all matters of family law, women seem to benefit more from court rulings. Perhaps this was once a matter of gender bias, but nowadays, such discrimination is extremely unlikely to occur. Multiple sources confirm that children lead healthier, happier lives when both of their parents are involved in an amiable way. This does not mean that every decision will be fair based solely on gender.

The truth is that courts base their decisions on a great many different factors, with the goal always being to do what is in the best interests of the child. Of course, courts are not intimately familiar with the lives of every family, so they can only make such decisions based on the information and cases presented to them. That is why legal aid is so important.

If you do not take divorce proceedings as seriously as your spouse, you could find yourself facing a scenario in which the courts believe that you are not as involved in your child's life as you should be, that you are not as fit as the child's mother to raise the child. Florida law has very clear guidelines when it comes to fathers' rights, and if you do not make a strong enough case, you could end up spending very little time with your child after the divorce. In order to ensure that you make the strongest case for your custodial rights, please visit our webpage to learn how we can help you prove that you are the father your child needs.
