Time Sharing Florida Family Law
You’ve gone through the divorce. You’re in the middle of your custody dispute. You feel like you’ve finally come to a resolution when the court asks you for your time sharing plans. You look at your lawyer confused. You didn’t realize you had to make a specific plan outlining the time shared between you, your child, and your spouse.
Parenting Plan Attorney
Since 2008, the law has required “Parenting Plans” during any custody disputes between parents. Previously, the court would usually grant the mother primary residential custody and allow the other parent “free and liberal timesharing.” Sometimes it would be a little more detailed, but never enough to not end up back in court for minor custody disputes.
Time sharing may seem like an extra process–a tedious procedure–but the statute exists to benefit you. We, at Marcia Del Rey Law, know how much you love your child. We want to make sure that you are able to spend as much time with them as possible so that you don’t miss out on fallen tooths, birthdays, or any aches and scrapes they may have gotten while playing in the playground at school.
Parenting Plans & Sharing Times
A parenting plan is a specific plan explaining how both you and your ex-spouse will continue to care for your child. Each plan should be tailored to you and your ex’s individual capabilities as a parent.
The plan should include:
- A schedule detailing the times each parent will be spending with their child
- The custody agreement decision designating legal custody and the authority to make decisions for and about your children
- An explanation of how the parents will provide medical benefits for the child (including medical insurance and other payments)
- Information on your child’s education (where they will attend school and how you will choose the child’s school)
- Details explaining communication plans between parents
- Details explaining communication plans between the parents and their child
- Child support
- Special needs
- Traveling and relocation
