The importance of paternity to fathers' rights

Paternity is an important aspect of fathers' rights, since once the legal identity of a father in Florida is determined, the father can pursue child custody and visitation if that is what he desires. Additionally, determining paternity also provides for the establishment of child support obligations, which the father of the child pursuing paternity should also be aware of. Both parents, either the putative father or the mother of a child, can initiate a paternity action.

Understanding Florida child custody basics

Child custody can be a highly-charged topic during divorce and grow contentious as intense emotions may be involved in the process. As a result, it can be helpful for parents and families to understand how the family law process in Florida works and defines child custody which can help parents know what to expect and arrive at a child custody arrangement and outcome that is in the best interests of the child and benefits the family.

Parenting plans for long distance visitation

The courts of Florida parents to adhere to a detailed written parenting plan, which may also be referred to as a visitation plan, whenever the parents are living in separate homes and are going to each want to spend time with their children, which is virtually all custody and visitation cases.

How are father's rights handled regarding child custody?

Decades ago, it was generally understood and widely accepted that the father of a family would go out and earn a living while the mother and wife stayed home, took care of the home and children. Times have changed considerably since then; in today's workplace, more and more women are working and often climbing the corporate ladder as much as men. Since things have changed in the workplace, changes can also be reflected in the changing of gender roles at home as well.
