Mother’s Rights in Tampa Bay Florida
In Florida, the statutes are very specific as to time-share child (custody) and both the mothers’ and fathers’ rights and responsibilities are addressed. If you are divorcing with minor children or if you have already divorced, your ex may be infringing upon or interfering with your parental rights. If you are experiencing a conflict with the father/mother of your child, it is best to promptly consult with an experienced time-share child (custody) attorney in Tampa Bay to mitigate further conflict.
Protecting Mother’s Rights
Frequently, a biological father will wish to establish paternity and time-share (custody) when the child is older. This can be extremely unnerving for a mother who has had the sole financial responsibility and time-share of the minor child.
It is important that mother’s understand their rights and their responsibilities if a paternity action is filed. There are numerous factors that the courts will take into consideration in paternity cases and divorce cases where time-share (custody) is in question, including, but not limited to:
- History of domestic violence
- Father’s relationship with the minor child
- Financial stability
- Substance abuse
- Criminal history
- Best Interest of Child
Mother’s Child Time-share (Custody) Rights
Your parental rights are probably the most important right you will ever fight to protect. When a parent
feels that their relationship with their children may be threatened in some way, or if the children are
being negatively affected by high conflict, it can be worrisome at best. It is important to understand that the courts do not rule based on a parent’s emotion, but, they look to the best interest of the child in any time-share child (custody) case. Although the courts do consider high conflict factors, in paternity and also in divorce cases, there is a high burden of proof upon the parent who needs to protect their parental rights or the best interest or safety of the minor children. It is very important to understand the differences between sole parental responsibility and timesharing and to know what your options and legal strategy and solutions should be. Seeking experienced legal counsel is highly recommended in any time-share child (custody) case.
