Child Custody Laws to Change in Tampa Bay
Parental Responsibility – House Bill Passed / Signed into Law
Fathers who establish legal paternity now obtain automatic equal parental responsibility. This puts fathers on equal footing with mothers with regards to “guardianship.” This does not necessarily mean equal timesharing will be granted. However, it appears that the new laws will further support the leanings of the courts in recent years to award equal timesharing when it is in the best interest of the child.
