Mother's & Father's Rights

Steven Winig is a highly experienced divorce attorney

It is the goal of any custody battle to ensure that the children are in the best possible day-to-day living situation.

It is a common misconception that a mother has an advantage over the father when a Court is determining custody in a divorce or paternity case, however this is no longer the case. In Florida, there is no presumption for or against the father or mother when the Court determines the parenting plan that is in the best interest of the minor child(ren). Quite to the contrary, it is the public policy of the state that minor child(ren) are to have frequent and continuing contact with both parents upon the parent’s separation and/or dissolution of marriage. The parents are encouraged to share the rights, responsibilities, and joys of childrearing.

Further, pursuant to Florida Statute §61.13(2)(c)(2), the court shall order that the parental responsibility for a minor child be shared by both parents unless the court finds that shared parental responsibility would be detrimental to the child.
