Time Sharing and Child Support
The Courts will establish a “parenting plan” that sets forth all of the parties’ rights to make major decisions, where the children will live, and which parent must pay child support. A “primary parent” does not exist anymore. Florida law is clear that the best interests of minor children is paramount in determining shared parental responsibility.
Creating a Parenting Plan and time sharing schedule that is fair, clear and unambiguous will be a crucial focus to protect your rights and the children. Your parenting plan will be clear to you who is picking up your child from school, but more importantly, your child won’t be wondering who will be picking them up. It will be the parents’ guidelines for the children’s peace of mind.
