Now referred to by Florida family courts as timesharing, child custody can be devastating to children and parents, if handled improperly. The questions surrounding custody of children are often the most controversial facets of a divorce. It is imperative that your family experience the most comfortable transition possible. Due to the sensitivity of these issues, Florida family courts now refer to timesharing instead of child custody, and parenting plans instead of visitation.

Parents must take responsibility for the care of their children, whether they are together or apart. Children should be able to maintain a stable relationship with both mother and father, even in tumultuous times. While it may be difficult to handle, questions about where a child will live and how they will have access to parents who are no longer together can be emotionally and financially devastating to a family. In the vast majority of situations, it is preferred that both parents are actively involved in the life of their child.
