The world is viewed differently through a child’s eyes and the separation of parents can seem more devastating to a child than anyone may realize. For this reason, courts will make decisions about parenting plans and a time-sharing schedule that are in the best interests of the child.
At the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., in Pompano Beach, Florida, we believe that your attorney should recognize your desires and those of your child or children, while striving to find the best possible outcome for your family. Your parenting plan and time-sharing schedule should lay the foundation for a strong and healthy future for your child, maximizing quality time with both parents.
Laws Are Changing • Your Lawyer Should Know The Facts
The terms child custody and visitation once described this area of family law. Florida courts now refer to child custody and visitation in the terms of a parenting plan, which includes provisions for a time-sharing schedule and parental responsibility. Despite the change in terminology, courts will still place the best interests of the child at the heart of any arrangement.
Creating a parenting plan in which both parents can agree and that ultimately serves the best interests of your child is a complex process. There are many issues, some of which are fairly obvious and some of which are not: holiday schedules, extracurricular activities, passports, school transportation and more. Drawing on 30 years of combined experience, our lawyers are determined to protect the needs of children as we carefully prepare our clients and their families for a better future.
