Winter Park Mothers’ Rights Attorney

Family Lawyer Assisting with Mothers’ Rights Issues

While many mothers struggle to provide for their children when the father refuses to pay child support after a divorce or when the biological father refuses to accept responsibility, it is important for mothers to know that they do have rights under Florida law. Parents have responsibilities toward their children, whether or not they were married at the time of the child’s birth. Parents also have responsibilities regardless of whether they were involved in a contentious divorce with one another. A Winter Park mothers’ rights attorney can help with your case.

Mothers’ Rights Issues in Winter Park

Whether you recently got divorced and have minor children from the marriage or have been struggling to prove parentage or paternity in order to have the biological father of your child provide necessary support, a dedicated family law attorney handling mothers’ rights issues at our firm can get started on your case today. The following are examples of some of the most common mothers’ rights issues that arise under Florida family law:

  • Unpaid child support;
  • Child support collections;
  • Violation of child support order;
  • Violation of Parenting Plan terms;
  • Relocation of the father;
  • Modifications to time-sharing schedules, parenting plans, and child support;
  • Proving paternity or parentage; and
  • Domestic violence issues.

Exercising Your Rights as a Mother After a Winter Park Divorce

When it comes to child custody, it is important for mothers in Florida to know that Florida law emphasizes that parents should share parenting responsibilities for their children. In most cases, the court presumes that some form of shared parenting and a time-sharing schedule is in the best interests of the children. Accordingly, even if mothers earn less money than the child’s father, they should not have concerns that the court will assume one parent should have more time with the children as a result of financial circumstances. The court looks at many different factors in determining what kind of time-sharing situation is in the best interests of the child or children.

Mothers should also know that fathers equally have a responsibility to support their children, even if the child is living primarily with the mother. If a father violates a child support order, you should speak with an attorney to learn more about child support collections.

Mothers’ Right to Establish Paternity in Winter Park

When a mother has a child without being married to the father, some of the issues presented above can be even more complicated because parentage, or paternity, may not have been established.

There are steps that a mother can take with the help of a mothers’ rights attorney in Winter Park, Florida, to show that the presumed father is the child’s biological father and has parental responsibilities as well as responsibilities for providing support. The Florida Statutes have a specific procedure for the determination of parentage.
