Winter Park Family Attorney

Protecting the Parental Rights of Fathers

State lawmakers have changed the way child custody and visitation are resolved. Older ideologies that allowed mothers to have more rights have been changed, and fathers now hold equal rights to mothers in matters of custody and support. Shared parenting and parenting plans are the concepts which form the basis of decisions in a divorce.

The best interests of the child are the guiding principle in court decisions about child custody and support. Fathers may seek access to a child after birth when the mother has not acknowledged paternity. Are you seeking access to your child, and need to establish paternity? If so, we can assist you with this process. Our firm, Richard A. Heller, P.A., has over 20 years of experience, and has a BV® Distinguished™ from Martindale-Hubbell®. We are well versed the processes involved in child custody modification, as well as modifications to child support.
