Addressing child custody concerns

Child custody concerns are an important consideration for most divorcing parents. As a result, it is helpful for divorcing parents to understand how child custody concerns are addressed and handled through the family law system and the resources available to them through the family law process.

The guiding focus of all child custody considerations is what is in the best interests of the child. The family law court evaluates a host of factors to determine what is in the best interests of the child which can be different in each circumstance. The family law process in Florida recognizes that, whenever possible, it is best for the child to have a good relationship with both parents.

The family law court can help divorcing couples develop a child custody and visitation plan that is in the best interests of the child and works for them. In Florida, child custody is referred to as time sharing. The court will look to which parent has been the child's primary caregiver in the past and will also evaluate if either parent is unfit. Parents are encouraged to reach a child custody and visitation agreement by working together but the family law court is available to step in to help when needed to help resolve any custody-related disputes.

The family law court will consider over 20 factors to determine what is in the best interests of the child, including the wishes of the child. Because child custody concerns can be so important and complex, and additional considerations such as modification requests may also come up, it is helpful for divorcing couples to be familiar with the family law resources available to help with child custody concerns.
