Child Custody

Child Custody

 

We believe in fighting for the best interests of your child. Custody litigation can be a strenuous time on you, and especially your child. In the state of Florida, the court decides custody schedules based on a number of factors including healthcare, education, and recreational activities. We’ll work with you to create a plan that best reflects you and your child’s needs. 

Along with custody schedules, the Florida courts can also determine Parental Responsibility, which deals with the decision making aspects of your child’s life. In Florida, there are three types of Parental Responsibility; Shared Parental Responsibility , Shared Responsibility with Ultimate Decision-Making Authority, and Sole Parental Responsibility. In Shared Parental Responsibility both parents must confer with one another and come to a decision together. In Shared Responsibility with Ultimate Decision-Making Authority parents are expected to confer with one another, however the decision can ultimately be determined by the parent final granted authority. Finally, in Sole Parental Responsibility the parent granted authority is not required to confer with the other parent in the decision making process and may make the decision on their own. As a parent, we believe you have a right to your child’s life and will work diligently with you every step of the way.
