A recent trend in Florida family law shows that courts are considering 50-50 shared custody again. In general, this is good news for fathers who are seeking equal time with their children. It can also dramatically reduce the amount of child support the noncustodial parent pays. This is good for children as they can share the love and comfort of both parents in equal fashion.

You can rely on our experience and skill in divorce and all matters related to child custody. We represent mothers and fathers in custody and child support cases.

Protecting Your Relationship With Your Children

"Time sharing" is the legal term for child custody and visitation in Florida. The court considers many factors when deciding on time sharing, but the standard is what is in the best interest of the child.

Divorcing parents must write a parenting plan that specifies how they will share custody and child-rearing duties. We will help you work with the other parent to create a plan that works for your family.

Florida's statutory guidelines for determining child support are largely based on each party's income and the number of overnight visits with the secondary residential parent. The legal status parent (the parent with primary custody) pays less child support than the other parent. In addition to basic needs, child support payments may include money for specific needs such as health insurance, day care and educational expenses.
