Divorce is as difficult on a father as it is the rest of the family, so we must fight for our Fathers rights in Florida. What will happen to your children? Will their mother gain sole parental responsibility and majority time sharing? Will you have to pay child support? How often will you get to see your children? These are all questions that plague dads as they go through the process of divorce or separation. Many fathers are afraid they will lose all the rights they have to their children, but this is simply not true anymore.
The State of Florida recognizes that fathers have certain rights when it comes to the safety and well being of their children. It is in the best interest of the children to maintain a consistent and healthy relationship with both parents following a separation, barring extraneous circumstances like domestic violence. However, to assert your rights as the father of your children, you need the expertise and knowledge of a family law attorney who has experience in representing fathers in the divorce or separation process.
The legal team at Segarra & Associates, P.A. can assist you with ensuring that you have the option of:
- Shared parental responsibility if it is in the best interests of your children;
- Equal rights in a fair parenting plan that allows you to equally provide for, care for and develop relationships with your children;
- Equal timesharing if it is your children's best interests so that you can maintain a positive and consistent relationship with your children;
- A child support obligation that comports with the Florida Child Support Guidelines.
