You have every right to be a part of your child's life. However, as a man going through a divorce, you're more likely going to be the one who has to pay more in child support all while seeing your child less. Laws in Florida are biased towards women, even if the father is the one who could provide a better home for the children.

When you choose Kenny Leigh & Associates, we work with you to not only prove how capable of a parent you are, but also to help you get a fairer custody agreement. Our custody attorneys believe that each case must be looked at individually, and not just assumed that sole or primary custody should be with the mother.

When you're trying to do what's right for your child, schedule an appointment with one of our experienced custody lawyers in Gainesville, FL. Our firm is prepared to handle every aspect of your case, including:

Ensuring Your Child's Needs Are Put First

As hard as divorce can be for parents, it can be even worse for children. They don't understand the issues you're having and can often feel caught in the middle. What makes things worse is when they can't live where they'll best be able to thrive. If you're confident that your home will be the best place for your child, talk to our family custody lawyers.

There are different types of custody, including joint custody, sole custody, and shared custody. Most judges try to work out a way to award joint custody unless one parent proves to be unfit. However, joint custody still requires one parent to serve as the primary residence of the child. This often gets awarded to the mother, even if that's not the best option.

To protect your rights as a father, you need to work with a family custody attorney who will fight for you. That is exactly what you'll find at our firm.

Also Fighting for Grandparents' Rights

Sometimes, the best place for a child is with neither parent, but rather with a family member. Don't think that just because you're a grandparent that you don't have rights. As custody lawyers, we are happy to work on your case to ensure your grandchild can live the happy, healthy life he or she deserves.
