Sole vs. shared custody

Florida's current laws on child custody matters in a divorce state both parents should share. Generally, this 50/50 split allows for each parent to continue providing regular emotional support and to exercise their standard parental rights and duties despite dissolution of the marriage.

Grandparents taking the reigns from troubled parents

All children need and deserve a stable home life. And typically, it is a child's parents who are responsible for creating an environment that allows the child to grow and develop properly. Unfortunately, sometimes parents are not able to provide the care their child needs. In such cases, it is often the child's grandparents that must fill the void.

Is your school year custody schedule working as well as possible?

The summer has ended and school bells are ringing to summon children back to class. If you're a parent, life is very different once school starts up. In addition to school, your children may have music lessons, team sports or any number of other activities vying for their time. This means that your schedule will alter to accommodate their itineraries.

How can I help my grandchild whose parents are divorcing?

As a loving grandparent, you likely have great concern for your grandchild's health and well-being. And as long as his or her home environment is stable, you should not have much to worry about. However, if the child's household has become stressful because the child's parents are in the midst of a contentious divorce, then you may feel compelled to step up and take a larger role in his or her life.

Time-sharing schedules are a required part of parenting plans

In Florida, the term "time-sharing" is used to describe what is often referred to as visitation or custody. This term describes how your child's time will be divided between you and the child's other parent. A time-sharing schedule is a required part of every parenting plan.
