Timesharing: Child Custody & Visitation Rights

There are different types of Parenting Plans and Timesharing arrangements which must be made in all family proceedings involving children. (Effective October 1, 2008, Florida no longer designates one parent as the custodian, formerly known as the “primary residential parent”, and the other as the visiting parent, formerly known as the “secondary residential parent”).

Within each Parenting Plan, “time sharing” arrangements will set out specific days and times each parent will spend with their children throughout the year, including the division of holidays and school breaks. Parenting Plans are designed to set out specific details regarding the children’s education, extracurricular activities, daycare or after care and health care decisions, as well as how the parents communicate with one another and the children.

Our family law firm will discuss with you all of the parenting plan options you have regarding your individual Parenting Plan and timesharing arrangement.
