Child Time-Sharing Attorney in Clearwater

Your Children Deserve the Best

Your children are the most important people in the world to you. It stands to reason that you would want them to be in the healthiest possible environment, even if that means you are no longer living with the children’s other parent. In Clearwater child time-sharing cases such as this, it is up to the Florida courts to decide where the best residence for the children would be and how much time each parent has with them. Often, cases of child time-sharing can be harrowing because the parents just cannot agree on a parenting plan on their own. Our veteran Clearwater family law attorney can zealously work to ensure that your child time-sharing agreement is in the best interests of your children.

For an attorney with the experience you need in your child time-sharing case, call Connie R. Stephens at (727) 205-0770.

What the Courts Will Consider

Florida family court judges consider many factors when deciding child time-sharing, including, but not limited to:

  • Where the children currently reside, how long they have been there, and if the situation is stable
  • How the parental duties will be allocated between the parents
  • Indication of neglect, abuse, or abandonment suffered by the children
  • Signs of domestic violence or sexual abuse within the homes
  • Physical and mental well-being of each parent
  • Each parent’s capability to be a part of the children’s school and extracurricular activities
  • The willingness of each parent to adhere to a parenting plan and any possible changes, even if travel is necessary for visitations
  • To what degree each parent is willing to put the children’s needs before their own
  • How well-adjusted the children are at home, in the community, and at school
  • The children’s preference, factoring in the ages and maturity of each child

Times Have Changed the Way We View Child Time-Sharing

In past years it was more common for the mother of the children to be awarded primary time-sharing, with the father only having visitation rights. In today’s day and age, it has become the general practice in Florida child time-sharing cases to weigh each parent’s situation separately and make the determination of who is granted primary time-sharing of the children based upon who is better suited for the responsibility, not giving preference to gender. Some families have parenting plans that allow equal time for each parent to be with the children, necessitating a strong bond of communication between the parents with regard to the children’s daily lives.
