Orlando Fathers’ Rights Attorney
Florida Custody Rights Lawyer
Will a mother or father be a better parent? Decades ago, the presumption was that the mother was better suited to meet the needs of children and as a result, many child custody cases ended with the mother being awarded primary child custody. However, as times have changed, so too have the laws in Florida. Florida law does not have a presumption of who would be a better fit as a parent. Rather, it believes in a shared parenting model where both parents partake in decision-making and spend time with the child.
However, when a child is born to unwed parents and those parents decide to part ways, the father must take legal action in order to obtain and enforce his rights as a parent. The law office of Timothy W. Terry, Attorney at Law, helps clients in legal proceedings related to paternity, parental responsibility and time sharing (formerly called child custody and visitation), child support and fathers’ rights.

Terry, Attorney at Law, is available to serve clients in the central Florida region as well as out-of-state clients with a family law case here in Florida.
Our fathers’ rights legal services include:
- Paternity: Do you need assistance getting a court order for a paternity test? Paternity must be established before child support obligations or parental rights can be established (when the child was born to unmarried parents).
- Child support: Have you been ordered to pay unreasonable child support? Your child has a right to be financially supported; however, the child support order should reflect your financial situation. We can help with the modification of the order.
- Custody: Do you want to ensure the shared parenting plan does not unfairly favor the mother? We can assert your interests in negotiating or litigating a shared parenting plan that suits your needs with regard to time sharing and parental responsibility.
