Orlando Fathers’ Rights Attorney
The good news for involved fathers who want to protect their relationship with their children following divorce is that Florida courts want the same thing. The state of Florida has one overriding factor in child custody issues: What are the best interests of the children?
In 2008, the wording of Florida child custody laws was changed significantly. The terms “custody,” “visitation,” “primary residential parent” and “secondary residential parent” were replaced by “shared parental responsibility,” “time sharing” and “parenting plans.” Florida divorce laws now encourage equal responsibility for all decisions that need to be made in a child’s life.
If you feel like you have become the “secondary parent,” do not wait to take action. The Davies Law Firm, LLC, can protect your rights while your divorce is settled or if you were never married to your child’s mother.
The objective of these changes was to reduce the number of battles between parents over the amount of time that each gets to spend with their children and instead, as the law states, concentrate on the best interests of their children.
