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
