Florida Custody Facts

While the laws can be complex surrounding custody issues, the highest priority is to ensure you know what to present to the judge and how to present it. Our Miami family law firm handles all aspects of child custody and parenting plans, including child relocation and dependency.

Custody is broken down into two areas, which include:

  • Physical custody, pertaining to where and with whom the child will live
  • Legal custody, which gives a parent the right to make decisions about the child’s health care, education, religion, and other important aspects of their upbringing

In shared custody situations, both parents have legal custody while alternating physical custody. This is preferred by the courts, since it seems to be the best way for children to maintain continuing and meaningful relationships with both parents.

Preventing a Judge from Making Parenting Decisions

When parents cannot agree on custody/parenting plans, the courts will decide these issues.

The judge will take a number of factors into consideration, including:

  • Each spouse’s parenting ability
  • Ability to provide a safe environment
  • Finances
  • Ages of the children
  • Health of each parent
  • Whether domestic violence or substance abuse has been a factor

What Is a Parenting Plan?

This plan details how a child’s time will be divided between both parents, where and with whom the child will mainly live, and how major decisions about the child’s upbringing (education, religion, health care, other important matters) will be shared or divided between the parents.

Specific matters such as how to divide school breaks, vacations, birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions should also be included. How these arrangements are made will depend on proximity, parental work schedules, the child's wishes (if old enough to have a preference), and more.
