Child Custody

The state of Florida resolves child custody issues by establishing a parenting plan. A parenting plan includes a time sharing schedule for both parents, parental responsibilities, and child support.  The state of Florida does not use the word "custody" or "visitation" any longer. The majority time sharing parent is the parent that has "custody" or time sharing for more than fifty percent of the time. If custody is disputed, normally the court will appoint a parenting evaluator to make a recommendation to the Court as to a parenting plan that will be in the best interest of the minor child or children.
