Florida Fathers For Equal Rights in Family Court


The laws of Florida provide both parents with the right to have a healthy relationship with their child. However, men have to fight zealously for their father’s rights in Florida. Failure to do so could mean that they will not have a relationship with their child and they will not be protected financially after a divorce or a separation. While it is true that father’s rights are increasing in Florida and around the country, the courts still lean towards the mother. This is why it is essential to have a father’s rights attorney on your side fighting for you through the process. Get the Florida fathers rights help and advice you deserve today!

You Deserve Quality Fathers Rights 


Florida family law statutes state that if a woman is not married by the time she delivers a child, the supposed father’s name should not be entered in the birth certificate of the child without a signed affidavit from both the mother and the presumed father. A biological father who is not married to the mother of his child has the right to file a claim of paternity, claiming that he is the father of the child. Forms to do so will need to be filed with the Florida Putative Father Registry. When filing this claim of paternity in Florida, the alleged father can state their wish to be informed of any adoption proceedings or dependency action. If the unmarried biological father fails to exercise these Florida fathers’ rights, they could lose their parental right to the child.
In case an unmarried mother has not taken any action to find out the paternity of their child, a man who believes that the child is his has the right to file a court order that will establish the child’s paternity through a paternity test. The paternity of the child must be determined by agreement of both parties, order of the court or operation of the law before the father can request their Florida fathers’ rights to custody. Getting a DNA test is a fast, simple, and relatively inexpensive way of proving that you are the father of a child.

Florida Father’s Rights to Time Sharing and Custody

Florida family laws do not favor either parent when establishing custody and time-sharing rights. At the beginning of a child custody case, both parents should have equal rights to custody and time-sharing. A parenting and custody plan will be formulated on the basis of what is in the child’s best interests. This can either happen through agreement of both of the parents, or by a court order dictated by the judge involved in the case. In most cases, both parents decide to work out an arrangement where custody, visitation, and all other issues dealing with the child are negotiated and written into a final custody judgment or parenting agreement.
Florida child custody laws dictate that both parents should be involved in taking care of the child and in making decisions that will affect the child. Psychologists believe that the best time-sharing and custody plan should involve both parents so that the child receives financial and emotional support from both their mother and their father. It is also best if both parents feel that they can participate actively in their child’s life. When this isn’t the case and cooperative parenting in a Florida child custody case is not possible, a judge will order one parent to have primary decision making authority. Our attorneys fight to get you joint custody so that both parents have decision making authority.

Happy Birthday Zoraya!I Love You More!Tu Papa

Zoraya, The Meaning of Names (1997-5-18)

A name is much more than just a name!

Z is for zip, the quickness in your step!

O is for orderly, a lifelong passion.

R is for rely, everyone's trustworthy friend.

A is for accord, the harmony you spread.

Y is for youthful, your eternal look.

A is for accord, the harmony you spread.

The name “Zoraya” is of Arabic origin and it means “Rich”. It’s a name commonly given to girls.

According to the 1996 U.S. Social Security Administration data, the name “Zoraya” is not a popular baby girl’s name in California. Imagine that, only 6 babies in California have the same name as you in 1996. Across the entire United States a total of only 8 babies also bear the same first name during the same year. From 1880 to 2011, the highest recorded use of the name “Zoraya” was in 2005 with a total of 22 babies.

Since 1880, your name was recorded 308 times in the American baby names history. Do you want to know how popular is my name Zoraya?’

Your name in reverse order is “Ayaroz”. A random rearrangement of the letters in your name (anagram) will give ‘Raaoyz’. (How do you pronounce that?)

Your past life Zoraya:

I do not know how you feel about it, but you were a male in your last earthly incarnation.

You were born somewhere around the territory of USA South-West approximately on 1375.

Your profession was preacher, publisher, scribbler of ancient inscriptions.

Your brief psychological profile in that past life:

Timid, constrained, quiet person. 

You had creative talents, waited until that life to be liberated. 

Sometimes environment considered you strange.

Lessons that your last past life brought to present:

Your main task – to make the world more beautiful. 

Physical and spiritual deserts are just waiting for your touch.

Keep smiling!

Now do you remember?

When a parent is significantly minimized and excluded from a child’s life...

...what do you think children fill that emotional vacuum with?

Hurting dads, hurting kids

The “expert” witness and the therapist that the alienator hires is generally a psychologist, who not have expertise in family dynamics unless specialized training above and beyond the Ph.D training is obtained. To disqualify the “expert,” the following questions could be asked at trial:

In your professional opinion, on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest, what is the influence of parents on children prior to adolescence? (this should be a high #, and if not, the expert/therapist should be asked to justify a low # eg. who has the great influences.)

Do you believe that parental conflict generally has an adverse effect on children and/or causes the child to react negatively in response? Please rate that effect on a scale of 1-10. (this should be a high #, as even the lay person would acknowledge the impact of parental hostility on children. If the expert doesn’t give a high #, he/she should be asked to justify the answer.)
So you would (or would not—depending on prior answers) agree with Christopher Barden, PhD., JD., who has received 2 national research awards in psychology and a law degree with honors from Harvard Law school, when he stated, “There can be no credible controversy about the power of parents to influence children.” (The International Handbook of Parental Alienation Syndrome, p. 420)?
Would you also agree with Barden when he stated that custody cases require “the critical obligation to carefully review the influence of parents, therapists or other adults on the attitudes, beliefs and memories of children.” (pp. 419-432)?
Could you describe what some of these effects are?
Can you give some examples as to how children get caught up in their parents’conflicts.
You have just confirmed that you recognize the great influence of parents on children as well as the detrimental affects on children due to being exposed to the parental conflict. Yet I did not hear you express how you acquired your expertise in family dynamics. In fact, is it true that you are not licensed in your state of X as a Marriage and Family Therapist?
Can you state what training in family dynamics you had in your education for your psychology degree? (I can confirm that they had no more than family therapy 101, IF they had that at all. The LMFT degree, in virtually all states, requires 60 credits, including 2 internships in the provision of family therapy services.)
Are you aware of your X State’s criteria for obtaining this expertise and being qualified as a specialist for the licensing of a marriage and family therapist. How much of that criteria do you meet?
So could you please state how you are qualified as an expert in assessing family dynamics as well as the adverse effects on children resulting from the dysfunctional parental dyad?
What has been your experience in the treatment of families?
