Does the Mother Automatically Get Custody?

No, there is no presumption in favor of the mother when it comes to timesharing. In fact, the Florida statutes were updated on July 1st of 2023 to address timesharing and dissolution of marriage and paternity actions. It’s important to have an attorney who keeps up to date on legislative changes that affect you. Timesharing issues such as how many overnights each parent has with the child, transportation for timesharing, and travel arrangements can be addressed by agreement of the parties or by the court. Litigation is not the first resort. If you have more questions, I suggest you consult with an experienced family law attorney.
