Fathers' Rights Attorney in Jacksonville

Protecting the Rights of Our Clients

As a professional and dedicated Jacksonville fathers' rights lawyer, Attorney Jason Porter can fight to protect the rights of a father when it comes to the following terms of a divorce:

If you believe your rights have been violated, contact a knowledgeable attorney for advice. If the mother is the custodial parent and the father has visitation rights, it may be a violation of a court order for the mother to prevent the father's visitation. Any modification that is needed in support or custody arrangements must be worked out by the parents or determined by the court.

What Are My Rights As a Father?

Fathers have the same rights as mothers in divorce cases. Under Florida law, child support is the legal responsibility of both parents, and cannot be declined by either parent. The amount of child support that is paid is determined by various factors, including the child's financial needs as well as which parent has primary custody.

It is preferable for parents to work out their own custody and support arrangements. When disagreements can't be resolved, the court then decides the issues. Whenever possible, both parents are expected to be equally involved (shared parenting) in the child's rearing. This includes making decisions about the child's upbringing, activities and education.

Upholding Your Paternal Rights

Proving paternity establishes a father's legal rights regarding his child. Once a father is legally acknowledged as the biological parent of a child, he has rights to his child that must be upheld. The court will consider both a father's and a mother's relationship with their child, their work schedules and other circumstances before making a final decision on custody and visitation.

The Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A is an experienced family law and divorce firm that can protect your rights as a father in cases involving child support, child custody, visitation and paternity. We can provide competent legal counsel and help ensure your interests are protected.

    My experience working with Mr. Thacher was that he was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive, and took the time to explain everything to me. He took a process that I was unfamiliar with and helped me understand all my options and be able to make the best decisions in my case, and I really felt like he cared about the outcome for me. I was referred to his law office, and I highly recommend him if you're in need of a defense attorney. He will work towards the best possible outcome for your case and has a lot of experience, so you can feel confident in his advice. The phone call I received today was nothing less than thrilling!

    I'd been accused of something I did not do. My situation was a total nightmare. I consulted with Attorney Porter and he assured me that my tough situation could be handled.
