Fathers' Rights Archives

Law firms representing fathers and husbands in a divorce

There is a need for representation of men during certain divorce circumstances. There are often certain challenges in representing fathers and husbands in our Florida courts that are not present for wives and mothers.

Is more equality in parenting time good policy?

In Florida, the non-custodial parent is allowed at least 40 percent of the parenting time when it comes to their children. This is quite unique in that the parenting time for non-custodial parents in most states is more limited.

Custodial rights of unmarried fathers

Unmarried fathers of children have often struggled futilely to fight for any sort of custodial rights whatsoever when it comes to their children. Yet what happened in Colorado may have consequences in Florida as well when concerning a father's rights to visitation and custody.

Concerns about The Violence Against Women Act

A Florida psychology professor has been highly critical of The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in that it often unfairly is used to strip men of their rights as a father and husband. According to this individual, the presumption in domestic violence situations often is that the man is a fault. Sadly, there are circumstances when such accusations of abuse turn out to be false.

Establishing the rights of the biological father

Just how far Florida would go in equating the rights of the biological father with that of the mother has yet to be established. However, a movement is going on in the state of Michigan that may have impact on establishing paternity in other states as well.
