Divorce can be a complicated matter, especially when children are concerned. The State of Florida requires parenting plans for all divorcing couples with children in order to ensure that both parents are able to remain in continuous contact with their children after a divorce. These “timesharing” laws require that the parents have clearly determined parameters about how they will both share the responsibilities of the daily tasks associated with raising their children by coming up with a timesharing schedule.
At the Law Office of Jody L. Fisher, we work with families to ensure that parenting plans and scheduling needs are met. Our compassionate Leesburg divorce attorney understands that this is a difficult and emotional time for your family – our goal is always to find a solution that meets your family’s needs and reflects your children’s best interests.
Comprehensive Legal Counsel for Timesharing Schedule Negotiations
Timesharing schedule arrangements delineate the amount of time the children will spend with each parent and designate which parent will be responsible for any and all forms of health care, education, and all other daily activities.
In the State of Florida, there is no presumption for or against the father or mother of the children based on gender considerations, or for or against any specific timesharing schedule when creating or modifying a parenting plan. When you and your spouse begin to negotiate the development of a parenting plan that determines the amount of time you both will be spending with your children, it is crucial to work with an experienced Leesburg family law attorney who can help you navigate the complex process with ease. Jody L. Fisher is the attorney you can count on.
Determining Fitness of Each Parent
In determining the timesharing agreement reached, the court’s primary consideration is the best interest of the children involved. In order to determine this, the court must consider all of the factors that are provided by the parties as to their “fitness” as parents. The most important factor is the proven capacity of each parent to be part of a nurturing relationship, to stick to the timesharing schedule, and to be reasonable when any adjustments in the schedule are required. Having a Leesburg family law attorney with a proven track record of successes in cases such as these is a valuable asset in ensuring that the case will go your way and that an amicable agreement is reached.
