The State of Florida resolves child custody issues by establishing a parenting plan, which includes a time-sharing schedule for both parents. At Weiner & Weiss, LLC, we help clients create time-sharing schedules that meet court requirements and fulfill the needs of parents and children. From our offices in Boca Raton, we serve clients in West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and the coastal communities in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
In Florida, the concept of “time-sharing” has replaced the old system of awarding one parent primary custody in a divorce case and giving the other parent visitation time. When the legislature enacted the new time-sharing laws, it also modified and expanded the factors that courts must consider to appropriately allocate parental responsibilities. The primary concern remains the best interests of the child, but courts must also weigh:
Time-sharing means that each parent has full rights and duties with respect to their child, and that major decisions affecting the child must be made jointly. Logistical issues, such as how transportation will be handled, possible parent relocation, and the divvying up of holidays, must be outlined in the parenting plan.
If you need assistance with time-sharing and developing a parenting plan, please contact Weiner & Weiss, LLC to schedule a consultation. The decisions you make now can have a profound impact on you and your children.
