A question that often comes up is whether a court will award a father majority time sharing of his children. If you are not already familiar, time sharing is what Florida calls custody. Florida uses the term time sharing instead of custody. Essentially, both the mother and father may have time with the child they share.
According to Online Sharing, time sharing, as provided by statute, has no gender preference. In other words, there is no preference between the mother and the father on who should have the majority time. That being said, it is very possible that you as the father, just as much as the mother, can have majority timeshare. It is also possible that both parties would end up with equal time share. Every fact and circumstance is different. The court considers every circumstance on a case by case basis. Depending on the facts of your case, it may be possible to have the majority of the time or possibly not a majority of the time.
Contrary to popular belief, a mother is not automatically entitled to the majority of the time. What determines what the time sharing schedule will be between the parents is actually statutory. There is a list of factors that the courts are to consider when determining what that schedule is going to be. The statute is numerous in nature, and each factor has its own weight. That being said, if you feel that time sharing is an issue in your case or situations, you should reach out to an attorney.
