Fighting for Time-Sharing and Custody in Boynton Beach

Court decisions regarding a minor child are made based on what is in the child’s best interests. The court’s decisions are always based on this standard, so it is important to prove why your legal request is best for your child. There are multiple factors a judge will consider when determining what are in the best interests, including:

  • The ability of each parent to encourage a close parent-child relationship;
  • The division of parental responsibilities once the divorce is finalized; and
  • Each parent’s ability to determine and act upon the child’s needs.

Like other types of family law cases, child time-sharing and visitation matters are decided based on the unique facts of that case. Thus, there is no specific formula to “winning” your time-sharing and visitation case. Because the judge’s main concern is the child’s best interests, each parent will need to show they can properly support the child.

Florida emphasizes the need for each parent to have meaningful involvement in the child’s life. This often results in each parent having a portion of the time-sharing. If one parent has the majority of the time-sharing, the other parent is considered to have visitation. In these types of cases, or divorce cases that involve these issues, one parents often loses time with their child. Obviously, this can have a negative impact on their parent-child relationship and life in general.

To avoid losing significant amounts of time-sharing, parents often try to negotiate a settlement out of court. After all, who know what is better for your child than you? Out-of-court settlements can decrease your legal costs, decrease how long your case takes, and allow for more creative resolutions. When exploring possible negotiations, it is essential to have an experienced advocate during the process. I have years of experience helping parents negotiate out-of-court settlements to resolve their time-sharing and visitation disputes.
