Divorced Dads in Florida

"It turns out Florida may be among the best states for dads who want shared custody of their kids after a divorce, a recent study suggests."

An interesting story published in Florida Today

The study states that fathers in Florida are more likely to get 50/50 custody of their children compared to other states. Among the best states for fathers are also: Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin, which also tend to give fathers 50 percent custody. 
The worst states in the country for fathers who want equal time are Tennessee, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Illinois and Georgia. Tennessee was the worst state in the nation, where children spend less than 22 percent of their time with their fathers annually, the study stated. 
The study is based upon "judicial standards and a survey of legal professionals about the schedules they most often see" and include only cases where both parents wanted custody and no extenuating circumstances existed, a release from the company states.
