Child Custody & Time-Sharing
With emotions running high, things are often said and done during a child custody dispute that may have a negative impact on the outcome of the case. Your words and actions could jeopardize your relationship with your child. Before you say or do anything that you may regret later, talk to a lawyer.

How Child Custody Works in Florida
Even without the emotions, child custody is one of the most complicated legal issues. You have probably heard an endless assortment of terms like physical custody, legal custody, visitation, or time-sharing. We are here to help you understand how the law works.
First of all, it is important to know that the law is designed to make certain that children get the benefit of a relationship with both parents. Whenever possible, the relationship should be equal, with the child spending roughly the same amount of time with the mother and father.
The goal is to create a time-sharing schedule that is in the best interest of the child. We are skilled at creating written parenting plans and time-sharing arrangements that are designed to help you maximize your time with your child following a divorce.
