Determining Child Custody and Time Sharing

Changing its approach to child-related family law matters, Florida no longer uses terms such as child custody, sole custody, primary parent, secondary parent, visitation or other commonly used terms. Believing that shared parenting is, in most instances, in the best interests of the children, Florida courts now follow a time-sharing model.

In each case, parents must present a time-sharing plan/parenting plan to the court outlining important issues such as:

  • - How parents will communicate
  • - How holidays and school breaks will be divided
  • - How day-to-day decisions and important decisions will be handled
  • - What time each parent will spend with the child/children
  • - Where the child will primarily reside or if the child will have equal residence with each parent

Many counties have a standard parenting plan that can be used or modified as parents choose when making such important decisions. We work closely with clients to help them create a thorough, fair parenting plan that fully addresses all aspects of time sharing. Additionally, if an agreement cannot be reached, we are experienced at representing clients through mediation or advocating for their interests in trial.
