How Are Parenting Plans Decided On?

The Florida courts will take a range of different factors into consideration when trying to come up with a viable parenting plan / visitation agreement. If both parents can come to agreement on a visitation schedule, the court will simple need to review and approve it.

When making your parenting plan, keep the following in mind:

  • The age of your child can determine the length of visits
  • In most cases, children will stay together rather than be split between parents
  • The court prefers both parents to be given adequate time with a child
  • You should cover holidays, summer break, vacations, school days, and week days

There is no standard schedule for time-sharing in Florida, which means you and the other parent will need to come up with a solution that works for you both or trust that your attorney can convince the judge of a better visitation agreement. If you have been refused visitation, or if you need to discuss your options, our experience and familiarity with Florida child custody laws enables us to help.
