Legal assistance for divorcing parents

Our society as a whole has become more understanding of the idea of shared custody and the importance of parents taking active roles in the lives of their children. Perhaps because of this, Florida has recently revised its laws regarding custody and visitation, with phrases such as parenting plans and time-sharing schedules becoming more common. This is all done in an effort to decrease the level of hostility between divorced parents and lead to a healthier family life for a child, even in the event of a divorce.

The parenting plan must be developed by parents unless they cannot agree, in which case the courts will take over the responsibility. In an ideal world, all parents will agree on the parenting plan and design it to be fair to both parties. Unfortunately, we do not live in an ideal world, and many parents still hold serious animosity toward one another after a divorce.

When the courts establish a parenting plan, they take many factors into consideration to do what is in the best interests of the child. Depending on the circumstances, this may lead to a parenting plan that favors one parent over the other, potentially even allowing one parent very little visitation time with the child. It is up to you to prove that your involvement is best for your child so that you can get a fair parenting plan and the amount of visitation with your child you deserve.

Because the law has recently changed, it is perhaps more important now than ever to enlist the aid of an attorney when going through a divorce.
