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 parenting plan.
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 modification.
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.
