Arranging a Favorable Visitation Schedule
Under Florida law, shared parenting plans are the favored arrangement for
child custody and visitation matters. As you formulate a visitation arrangement, the
law requires that every parenting plan favors your child's well-being.
Various factors will influence the specifics of a
Your plan should account for the following:
- Your child's preference for a certain arrangement
- Parental ability to foster a positive relationship with the child
- Any history of abuse, including domestic violence
- Your child's educational needs and opportunities
- Any family member's prominent medical needs
It is expected that parents will work together to negotiate a reasonable
shared parenting plan. If you cannot agree on a plan that operates in
the best interest of the children, the court will do it for you, based
upon a formula. The visitation schedule the court chooses may not suit
your situation, and modifications can be difficult to get approved. Work
with our seasoned legal team to ensure that you can work toward a plan
that suits your needs.
When to Seek a Modification
Careful as you may be to write up the perfect parenting plan, life continues
to change. You may find that what was once a feasible visitation schedule
no longer supports a beneficial parent-child relationship. If you have
experienced substantial changes and need to update your parenting plan,
you can do so with a
State law allows parents to modify their visitation schedule after a significant
change in circumstances. This change must have been unforeseeable at the
time you crafted a parenting plan, and must dramatically affect one or
both parents' ability to keep with the current arrangement. Common
grounds for adjusting a parenting plan range from a change in income to
the sudden onset of medical difficulty. A Winter Park
family lawyer can assess your situation and help you make a strong case for modification.
