Fathers’ Rights Attorneys in Melbourne, FL
We Can Help Protect Your Parental Rights
It can be difficult for fathers to receive time-sharing rights because the process is always held in court. Men seeking time-sharing in Florida must be able to prove that they are the biological or legally adopted father of the child. As soon as paternity is established, a Florida court will create a paternity order, which grants the father legal time-sharing rights.
If you are a father in Melbourne, FL interested in getting time-sharing rights or custody of your child, contact the Figueroa Law Group, P.A. We have decades of experience helping and advising Florida fathers in difficult situations while protecting their parental rights.
Give us a call at (321) 248-1011 to get started.
Fathers’ Time-Sharing Rights in Florida
When it comes down to parental rights, fathers have the same rights to their children as mothers once paternity has been established. Floridian fathers are entitled to regular communication with their child and have the right to be involved in the child’s life, barring extreme circumstances.
In many cases, the parents cannot agree on time-sharing arrangements. Florida judges may have to intervene in time-sharing disputes to establish a plan on the parents’ behalf. If one parent violates a court-ordered time-sharing schedule, the other parent has the right to request a sanction.
Time-Sharing Modifications in Florida
In Florida, both fathers and mothers have the same parental rights. That said, time-sharing rights can always be adjusted by a family court if the modification is necessary and in the child’s best interests. For example, a judge may revoke a parent’s time-sharing rights if they are engaging in inappropriate behavior, neglecting the child, or abusing drugs or alcohol.
