If the parents of a child cannot agree on a time-sharing plan of the children, a court will decide the issue for them. Sometimes this may require a court ordered third-party assessment of the child (or children) and the parents. The key words for child custody and visitation is “best interest of the child.” Because the State of Florida wants to encourage equal parenting time, the courts will start off with a 50/50 split of time with the child and will adjust the parenting time share plan as it considers what is in the best interest of the child.
The majority of time, child custody and visitation is determined as part of a marital dissolution action. But, this may not be the case where the parents have never married and one party is seeking to obtain a court ordered arrangement. Allen Law, P.A. can help you seek your rights as a parent for access to your child. Contact us today for a free* initial consultation.
The jurisdictional issues that apply to modification of child support discussed here, similarly apply to modification of child custody and visitation. If since the original time sharing or custody and visitation plan there has been a substantial change in circumstances between the parties, modification of the original order may be appropriate. Allen Law, P.A. is here to help you determine whether the changed circumstances are substantial enough to warrant a petition to the court for a modification.
