Shared Custody Is Promoted By Florida Law

Shared custody is promoted in Florida by the family courts, which enable both parents to be involved in their children's lives. Time sharing has been replaced by custody to reflect this intent to keep both parents actively involved. More than 20 factors are considered by Florida courts when making decisions about time sharing.

How is Child Custody Determined?

Child custody is determined by a variety of factors, which are referred to as “best interests.” It is a big umbrella that covers a vast range of points, which are all closely examined by a judge.

Below is a list of some of the factors involved in determining child custody:

  • The ability of each parent to care for the children and meet their needs
  • The home history of the children
  • The permanence of each parent’s living situation
  • The strength of the bond between the children and each parent
  • If both parents are willing to cooperate and support the other’s relationship with the children
  • In some cases, the preference of the children may be considered if they are old enough to expresses their wishes

Judges have a lot of discretion when it comes to determining child custody, so this list is not exhaustive, especially since everyone’s situation is unique. Our experienced team will advocate on your behalf in court and help secure the most suitable outcome.
