Promoting Fathers' Rights During And After Divorce

In matters of child custody and parenting time, most fathers want the same thing: to be treated fairly in court and to protect their parental rights. Unfortunately, sometimes fathers are at a disadvantage in family law cases because of gender stereotypes or their careers.

I am H. Stephen Hillebrand, Attorney at Law, and I have been helping fathers in Florida protect their interests throughout the divorce process and in other family law matters for 35 years. All parents are entitled to the same rights under state law, and I can help you make certain that someone is looking out for yours.

Dedicated To Obtaining The Custody Agreement You Deserve

I help fathers reach fair and reasonable custody and parenting arrangements that give them the time they need to maintain strong relationships with their child and avoid parental alienation. This also involves making sure they have a say in important decisions about the child's upbringing and future, including matters of health care and education.

In the state of Florida, custody determinations are based on the best interests of the child. However, often parents disagree about what exactly the child's best interests are. I work closely with fathers to determine the best approach for the child's well-being, then pursue a fair and equitable result in negotiations, in mediation sessions or in trial.
