How Child Custody Is Determined in Florida

In the State of Florida a “Petition for Dissolution” needs to come with a “Parenting Plan”, a basic outline of how the parents plan to raise their child after they are divorced. This plan must be fully agreed upon by a child’s parents. In some cases the agreement can be mediated by an attorney and submitted on behalf of the parents or can be filled out by the courts in cases where it is necessary to intervene.

The parenting plan includes subjects such as:

The goal of the parenting plan is to come to a peaceful, legal, and uncomplicated resolution that is in the best interest of the child. In addition, this document outlines each parent’s legal rights in terms of custody, so that there are no complications in the future.

Sole & Joint Custody

Joint custody of a child is the ideal outcome where both parents are caring for and involved in a child’s life. When it comes to joint custody it is important to outline the initial scheduling of a parent’s timesharing rights. Legally deciding the parent’s time involvement with their child. This can come in the form of fully divided custody, where a child lives equally among each parent, or visitation and vacation rights.

One parent might have majority time with the child, but it is also important to keep in mind that both parents have rights unless otherwise stated. In cases of majority custody schedule for holidays and school breaks are crucial to outline so that there is no confusion between the parents. If a parent has majority custody it is important to outline a schedule of visitation rights if need be.

Cases of sole custody are usually reserved for cases when a parent is neglectful or an abusive and all the rights are given to a single parent. One parent carries all the rights to decision making and visitation rights. If the other parent is granted visitation, the legal guardian must outline the supervision requirements during meetings, guidelines on exchanging the child, transportation to and from the exchange, and times when it is appropriate to communicate with the child. All custody rights are contingent on the agreed upon plan presented when filing for dissolution.
