As experienced Florida family law attorneys, we at the Ramirez Law Firm are prepared to assist you in resolving your child custody and visitation issues.
Child custody and visitation in Florida
Florida focuses on protecting the best interests of the child in all custody and visitation matters. State law refers to child custody and visitation agreements as timesharing schedules and regulates the parent-child relationship through a parenting plan. Timesharing schedules can be agreed upon by the parents with court approval.
If the parents cannot reach agreement on a plan — or if the court rejects the parents’ proposed plan — the court determines a timesharing schedule based on the child’s best interests. The court considers many factors in its determination of the timesharing and parental responsibility of a child pursuant to the factors stated in Florida Statute 61.13(3)(a). – (t).
Modifying Florida child custody and visitation agreements
Timesharing schedules and parenting plans can be modified throughout the years to reflect the changing circumstances and needs of the children and parents. The Ramirez Law Firm stands ready to guide you through the process and fight to protect your time with your children.
