Florida Child Custody Time-Sharing & Parenting Plans
Best Interest of the Child
Florida has no presumption for or against the father or mother of the child or for or against any specific time-sharing schedule. The courts approach every issue regarding children by determining what is in the children’s best interest. The children should have frequent and continuing contact with both parents after the parents separate in Orlando, FL or surrounding areas. So, when a mother and father create a time-sharing schedule they should be sure to give enough time for both parents to be with the child. Parents should look at the needs of the children and figure out how to best allow both parents to be involved. At the Jennifer Dane Family Law office in Orlando, FL we further encourage parents to share all aspects of child rearing. To do this, each parent should have long enough visits to bond with the children and to perform different responsibilities and be involved in different aspects of the child’s life.
Parenting Plans Attorney
Since October 2008, Florida courts have followed a revised statute in determining issues regarding minor children in dissolution of marriage cases. The new statute requires that all cases with minor children have a parenting plan. The parenting plan will be required to describe in adequate detail:
Shared vs. Sole Child Custody
Typically, courts order the parents to have shared custody unless there is ample evidence that shared custody would harm the child. Parents should do everything in their power to work together on the custody and visitation schedule in Orlando, FL and surrounding areas, so the parental responsibilities are shared. If a parent does not want the other parent included in the child’s life, there must be good reasons why and evidence to support them. Florida law requires that the court consider reasons for limiting time-sharing with a parent.
