Are Florida courts more likely to award custody/timesharing to mothers than to fathers?

Not necessarily. One of the main factors that the court looks at, it’s what is in the best interest of the child? In determining such, the court looks at Florida statute 61.13 which spells out several factors that the court can consider. None of those factors address whether or not you are the mother or the father so the court does not take that into consideration.
