Fathers' Rights

Orlando Fathers' Rights Lawyer

Fight for Your Right to Child Custody & Parenting Time

In the past, a divorce typically resulted in the mom caring for the children, and the dad relegated to the "fun" role. Dad took the kids fun places on the weekends and did not share in the more mundane activities such as homework, chores and driving to after-school activities.

Those days are over. In today's world, we have stay-at-home fathers as well as families with two full-time wage earners. The family law system has caught up with our culture and currently rules in favor of timesharing or shared parenting plans that are roughly equal. At our office, R. Gregory Colvin, LLC, our lead Orlando fathers' right attorney, Greg Colvin, is a single dad with full custody of his children. We understand the importance of advocating for a father's right to be involved in the lives of his children.

Protecting Your Rights as a Father

We have helped more than one thousand fathers with a wide variety of fathers' rights issues, including:

  1. Fathers seeking divorce who want to ensure equal rights in the parenting plan
  2. Fathers with a recent positive paternity determination, who want visitation time to develop a relationship with their son or daughter
  3. Divorced fathers seeking a modification to change the child custody arrangement agreed to during divorce

If the mother and father can come to a timesharing agreement, the judges will nearly always accept it. If the parents cannot agree on a parenting plan or timesharing plan revision, the judge will make the ruling.

Judges are very savvy when it comes to spotting a father who wants additional parenting time simply to avoid child support payments. If the logistics don't work out, or you don't know the child's favorite cereal, or book or cartoon - you may not like the judge's decision either." - Attorney R. Gregory Colvin, LLC

Equal Rights for Dads

Equal rights for parents is the starting point of any fathers' rights negotiation.

Common Points of Discussion Include:

Time availability - Is one parent employed full time and the other part-time? Does one parent have summers off and the other one have 2 weeks of vacation?

Logistics - Would frequent transfers be disruptive to the child? Does one parent live close to school?

Sunday nights and school nights - Is an overnight visit practical with school bright and early the next morning? Would the child's sleep schedule be disrupted?
