At Lawyer Advice, we have a thorough understanding and experience with the strict statutes involving child custody. We provide our clients with specific direction involving communication between the parents and shielding the children as much as possible throughout the legal process. We help the parents recognize the needs of the children involved while establishing a workable time sharing or child visitation plan for the parents.
When deciding on time sharing and custody, factors about each parent are looked over by the judge. The Florida Statutes require the judge to evaluate child custody, now "timeshare" in light of 20 different factors. These factors affect the time sharing procedure.
Good contact and relationship with the child
Good relationship with the other parent
Being supportive of the child in all manners
Encouraging the child and the other parent to have a good relationship
Geographic viability of the visitation schedule
Do what's best for your child, call now
Parental responsibilities and parenting tasks
Moral fitness of the parents
Demonstrated capacity and disposition
Mental and physical health and fitness, community record, the time and intensity of relations, past actions, future plans
Any other factors the judge finds relevant
