Infant child in Florida to remain in state custody

When most people hear the phrase child custody, they imagine divorced couples battling over who has primary custody of the child or how many visitation hours the non-custodial parent receives. While this is obviously the most common custody issue, it is not the only type of child custody issue. In some instances, state agencies determine that a parent or guardian is unfit to care for the child or that their care is not in the child's best interests.

Florida laws regarding child custody

When parents decide to get divorced, the largest issue for both parties is usually how much time each parent gets to spend with the child after the marriage is over. Florida used to employ a method involving a visitation schedule, which designated how much time the noncustodial parent was allowed to spend with the child. Of course the child was able to spendĀ all other times in the care of the primary residential parent. This is no longer the case.

How do courts determine grandparents' visitation rights?

Most people know about the complexities of custody and visitation in the event of a divorce. The subject features prominently in many movies and television shows, and it is an understandable and relatable conflict to desire more time with your child when you are only allowed a set amount. But while the plight of divorced parents may be commonly acknowledged and appreciated, the similar struggle of grandparents is not quite as widely recognized. Despite this, it is important to remember that children can benefit greatly from a healthy relationship with their grandparents.
