How Can A Father Get Full Custody In Florida?
In Florida it is rare for either parent to get sole parental responsibility and custody. However, it is not impossible. In order for a court to grant full custody to either parent, the court must determine that shared parental responsibility would be harmful to the children and not in their best interests.
Therefore, in order for a father to get full custody in Florida, he must show the court that giving any parental responsibility to the mother would be detrimental to the children involved. Demonstrating that the mother is likely to undermine the relationship between the father and the children or that she is unlikely to adhere to the court-ordered time-sharing plan are two examples of circumstances that could result in full custody for the father.
