Father’s Rights & Mother’s Rights:

Many times fathers and mothers have a misunderstanding that the other party has an advantage or disadvantage in their divorce or paternity case in regards to their children due to their gender. While this may have been true years ago, the law and preconceived notions of society have changed, and for many years now, both the fathers and mothers have an equal footing in a divorce and paternity case regarding their children under Florida law.

Parenting Plan & Time Sharing:

There is no presumption for or against the father or the mother in creating the parenting plan for the child. The Court’s concern is what is in the best interest of the minor child. It is also the public policy of Florida to assure that each minor child has frequent and continuing contact with both parents after the parents separate or the marriage of the parties is dissolved and to encourage parents to share the rights and responsibilities, and joys, of childrearing.

In some case’s it will be in the child’s best interest to have more time sharing with one parent than the other, while in other’s it may be in the child’s best interest to have an equal amount of time sharing with each parent. There are a number of factors the Court will consider in establishing the time sharing schedule for any minor child.
