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:
divorce who want to ensure equal rights in the parenting plan
Fathers with a recent positive
paternity determination, who want visitation time to develop a relationship with
their son or daughter
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."

Equal Rights for Dads
Equal rights for parents is the starting point of any fathers' rights
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?
