Helping Florida residents get the visitation they deserve

Custody laws vary by state, but in nearly every state there is some form of law regulating custody agreements between divorcing parents who both wish to spend time with their children. In Florida, these laws are governed by a parenting plan, which is a legal document outlining the relationship that each parent has with a child, including how much time parents are allowed to spend with the child, which decisions they are legally allowed to make and more.

Perhaps the most important part of the parenting plan is the necessary time-sharing schedule, which explains the details of how a child will be shared among the parents. This schedule usually includes which days a parent may spend with the child and for how long, as well as when and where parents will meet in order to exchange custody. This parenting plan would also include any other visitation rights and information about decisions that parents are allowed to make.

Depending on the relationship that the parents have with one another, they may wish to have their parenting plan be very specific or rather open. Couples who part amicably and remain friends, for example, may have a very flexible parenting plan that allows a parent to drop by to visit the child at their leisure. Couples that divorced with more animosity may have very specific parenting plans that minimize the amount of time that parents have to spend with one another.

Ultimately, parenting plans are the final authority when it comes to visitation, and attempting to visit a child outside of the allotted visitation time during the parenting plan can have serious legal ramifications. If you believe that your parenting plan is unfair, you can meet with an attorney and attempt to have the parenting plan modified depending on certain circumstances.
