Child Custody Visitation

Weston Child Custody Lawyer

In October 2008 Florida amended its laws concerning the issue of child custody in Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade County. The concept of custody of minor children no longer exists. In Florida each parent has equal parental rights in making decisions concerning the raising of the minor children. Visitation is now called “time sharing” and each parent is entitled to equal time with the children. Of course not every situation is the same and therefore there are many factors which determine a time sharing schedule

In every case which involves minor children in Weston and Pembroke Pines, a “Parenting Plan” must be agreed to by the parents. This plan is a written document which is filed with the court and includes all relevant information concerning the parent/child relationship; such as time sharing and decision making.

A child custody lawyer in Weston can simplify the legal process of filing for child custody and visitation rights. We understand the sensitive nature of your family’s situation and can help in the creation of a fair parenting plan and time sharing schedule. Consulting with a child custody lawyer ensures your decisions are legally binding and congruent with local child custody requirements in Weston, Pembroke Pines and all of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County.
