What is a parenting plan?

As a Florida couple who is divorcing with children, you will have more to deal with than childless couples do. It's therefor important for you and your attorney to understand the changes in child custody laws and how it is handled in the state. We at the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., can do just that.

The first thing to understand about child custody in Florida is that it's referred to as a parenting plan and has an accompanied time-sharing schedule. This is due to studies over recent years proving that most children do better if both parents have a hand in raising them. While shared parenting doesn't always work in every situation, such as if one parent is abusive, it can largely help children cope with the split and grow up in a healthier way.

Because of this train of logic, parenting plans and time-share schedules will usually allow for both parents to have a say in the child's life. This includes the maximization of quality time with both parents. Parenting plans also allow you to figure out potential issues like holiday scheduling. You can even work together with your ex-spouse to make decisions on matters like your child's schooling or healthcare decisions.

Making a parenting plan can be a stressful process full of ups and downs. You can visit our web page on child custody arrangements and the new laws regarding them in the link here.
