Great News for Men's Rights!
Over the years, there has been a hard-fought battle for men's equality in order to change Florida law regarding our children. That fight finally produced fruit through our legislature.
There has been a complete overhaul in Florida law regarding the time sharing arrangements awarded in divorce and paternity cases. Instead of one parent (usually the mother) being awarded the status of “primary residential parent”, we now have "parenting plans" where responsibility for every aspect of the children's lives must be spelled out.
Men will no longer be labeled as second class parents stuck with "visitation" (a label used in prison when someone comes to see a prisoner) with our children, but with specific rights through parenting plans.
“Custody”, “primary residential parent” and “visitation” are now abolished in domestic relations court in Florida! We now can enjoy co-parenting our children through parenting plans.

Men's Rights In Divorce
We believe that the men we represent need a voice so that their needs can be recognized and prioritized. Men's issues need to be put before the court and recognized by their significant others, mothers, children, and opposing counsel, who are all part of the equation when involved in the family law system.
Father's Rights In Florida
Florida laws to protect children are established and working. But the laws for a father's rights are not as well established and as a result, Florida fathers must fight for their rights. A father's rights in Florida are not automatically provided. Affirmative action by the father must be initiated if he is to protect his rights under the current Florida law.
Domestic Violence On Men
