Maitland Men’s Custody Lawyers

Florida Custody Precedents

While terms like “custody,” “visitation,” “primary parent,” and “secondary parent” may have been prevalent in the past, the state of Florida removed these words from the legal vocabulary in a law passed in 2008. Following this change, both mothers and fathers are now simply referred to as “parents.” While this small step paved the way for equality as it pertained to mothers’ and fathers’ time and responsibility with their children following a divorce or separation, the state went even further to establish a 50/50 custody precedent in 2023. 

This means that in all custody determinations, it should be assumed that it is in a child’s best interest to spend an equal amount of time with both their mother and their father, unless prevailing evidence proves otherwise. Our Maitland men’s custody lawyers can help you navigate the creation of a parenting plan that prioritizes your kids’ best interests while also addressing your unique goals. 

Men Face A Number Of Challenges In Custody Cases

Even though Florida has come a long way to leveling the playing field between mothers and fathers in family court, men still often find themselves in an unfavorable position, especially if their spouse resorts to tactics that are biased or misleading. Some men may be painted as too career-focused, or not compassionate enough, to have a significant amount of parenting time. Our Maitland men’s custody lawyers know that there are an innumerable amount of compassionate fathers who only want their relationship with their children to flourish, and ensuring they receive the parenting time they are entitled to is the first step. We will be your staunch advocate and combat any conscious or unconscious bias that may attempt to be used against you.
