Protecting the Rights of Fathers in Tampa Child Custody Matters
Fathers have the legal right to play a role in the upbringing of their
child, but must be considered fit to provide care in terms of financial
security, stability, emotional support and others. Fathers are also tasked
with the duties and responsibilities that come with children such as child
support and the expectation of proper care. A
Tampa child custody attorney can provide valuable insight into your rights as a father, and will represent
your case as effectively as possible.
While it may be little-recognized, fathers and mothers have the same rights
concerning their children under the law. In truth, the court considers
a wide range of factors before making decisions about the child's
well-being. While some of these areas may prove an advantage to the mother,
there are also areas that may be more helpful to the father. It is important
to understand your rights in any child custody or
visitation scenario in order to take the best possible action in the best interest
of your children.
