Child Custody vs. Parenting Plan – New Florida Laws

New laws became effective on October 1, 2008, and the term “child custody” has been replaced with “parenting plan,” requiring all divorcing couples with a minor child to establish an agreement that ensures the child continues to have frequent, continued contact with both parents once the divorce is final. The idea is for both parents to stay involved in raising of the child and to share in the parenting responsibilities. Visitation is worked out through a time sharing or shared parenting time schedule.

Our firm is able to assist you with all types of custody, including: legal custody, physical custody, and joint custody. We also handle parenting plan modifications.

What Does the Court Takes Into Consideration?

When determining the physical custody of the child, it is important to consider the following:

  • Parents' work schedules
  • Child's school or daycare schedule
  • Distance between the parents' home
  • Proposed visitation schedule
  • Best interests of the child

The court will generally take the child’s best interests into account as the determining factor in child custody decisions, which often means considering joint custody. You need to work with a lawyer who is committed to protecting your child's best interests by asserting your parental rights. At Hutchinson Law, our dedicated Jacksonville child custody attorneys are ready with over a decade of insight to help you preserve your relationship with your child.
