Timesharing

The experienced team of family law attorneys at Douglas Law Firm understands that the most difficult aspects of a separation or divorce can involve the children.  Not every parent agrees on how time should be shared with their children. This is especially true when there is a divorce or paternity case that has been initiated or is on the horizon.   

In Florida, Courts do not view children as property of their parents, so the old familiar terms such as “custody” and “visitation” have been replaced with a more unifying concept of timesharing.  Often times, the when and where you get to spend time with your children is the most critical part of your case. 

Most people are surprised to hear that there is no presumption for either parent, or any type of parenting plan, in Florida.  The law encourages parents to come to an agreement, but if the parents cannot agree, a court could decide you get to see your child one night a week or 7.  Or anything in between.  Our family law attorneys thoroughly understand all of the factors the court has to analyze in deciding on a parenting plan or timesharing schedule, and we fight to optimize your time, in support of the best interest of the children.
