Florida Child Custody Laws

Don Golden is the lead divorce lawyer at The Golden Law Group in Brandon, Bradenton and Sarasota, FL. He fully understands the intricacies of Florida child custody and child support laws.


Case in point: in 2008 Florida custody and visitation laws changed significantly. The state now requires the courts to establish a written Parenting Plan in all divorces involving time sharing with minor children, even when time sharing is not in dispute. Therefore, child custody rights are not based on a model, but on the individual circumstances of each family.


Experienced Help in Developing a Florida Parenting Plan

Once divorce lawyer Don Golden understands your child custody goals and is aware of your needs and unique situation, he will help you develop a comprehensive Parenting Plan. For example, these are just a few of the factors that must be addressed regarding time sharing and parental responsibilities:

•  How the parties will share and be responsible for the daily tasks associated with the upbringing of the child or children.

•  Time-sharing schedules that specify the time that the minor child or children will spend with each parent.

• Designation of who will be responsible for any and all forms of health care and school related matters.

•  Methods and technologies parents will use to communicate with the child(ren).
