Did you know fathers of kids born outside of a marriage have no legal rights to those kids. This also means the kids have no rights to have a father.

The father must petition the courts to establish basic parenting rights. Until he does so, the mother has all rights and can legally prevent and restrict any timesharing (visitation) with the father. An even worse situation occurs when the mother is married to someone who is not the father. The mother’s husband is the father and the real father has no legal standing to petition the court to become the legal father.

The laws in Florida are not aligned with the best interest of the child nor the basic rights of a parent and it is time for the laws to change. Thousands of kids each year are affected by this law. Many grow up without a father. Many have a father in their lives for years, and if the mother moves across the country with the child, father has no standing to have the child returned. It happens too often. Until these laws are changed, it will continue.

The changes to the law can be done by changing and adding a few words in a few sections of the Florida Statutes. Stand for rights for ALL kids, not just those born into a marriage of the mother and father.
