LEGAL GUIDE
Written by attorney Mary J. Zogg

Are courts more likely to award custody/time sharing to mothers than father?

In Florida, the gender is not taken into account, and the legislature has decided that both parents have a fundamental right to parent their child and that neither parent has a superior right to the other. So unbeknownst to most, it doesn't matter what your plumbing is. The women don't do it better. They have equal access to time with their children.
