Child Custody is resolved pursuant to a Parenting Plan in Florida. The Court will require a parenting plan whenever a timesharing agreement is at issue, even when the parents agree on the timesharing plan. The parenting plan will contain a timesharing schedule and should address the issues regarding the child’s education, health care, and physical, social and emotional well‐being. Once a parenting plan is entered, there must be a substantial change in circumstances before the Court will modify it. Therefore, it is important to seek counsel before entering a parenting plan. Often times it is too late to obtain arrangements that could have been accomplished if approached correctly the first time a parenting plan was adopted.
Don’t allow your relationship with your children to be forced upon you without obtaining advice from counsel.
