Clearwater Father’s Rights Attorney

Helping You Get Your Rights Acknowledged

Florida children deserve to be raised by both of their parents, not just their mothers. All too often, the rights of the fathers are of little consequence when it comes time to assign custody and visitation rights, even when spending time with their fathers is in the best interests of the children. Although the court system is slowly changing, there has been an undeclared bias against men involved in custody battles for decades. Even though more judges are subscribing to a more evolved view of child timesharing arrangements, fathers still need a voice. Our father’s rights attorney in Clearwater is an advocate for Florida fathers who want what is best for their children, which includes an appropriate parenting plan.

If you are looking for an aggressive and effective fathers’ rights lawyer, call Connie R. Stephens, P.A. at (727) 205-0770 to discuss possible strategies.

Confirming Paternity in Florida

The first step in a successful father’s rights strategy is to establish paternity if the father had not been married to the children’s mother. Just having a name on the children’s birth certificate is not sufficient. The father must prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that he is the father of the children that he wishes to be awarded rights to. Once paternity is verified, the next goal and where a married father’s rights case would begin is to draft a parenting plan that satisfies the needs of the father and the best interests of the children.

Demonstrating that a father’s influence is in the best interests of the children includes proving that he offers the following:

  • Reliable financial support
  • A positive role model
  • The ability to prioritize and put his children’s needs first
  • Participation in the children’s daily life including friendships, school, and extracurricular activities
  • A home atmosphere that is dependable, steady, and safe
