Child Custody Attorneys in Ocala

Helping You with All Your Parenting Plan Needs

When going through a divorce, the couple needs to develop a parenting plan for their child that includes provisions for child support, time-sharing, and parental responsibilities. If the two parents are able to agree on the conditions of the parenting plan, the court will most likely approve it. However, if they are unable to reach an agreement, the decision will be left up to the court and the court will make its decision based on what is in the best interests of the child.

The following factors may be used by the court to help determine the child’s best interests:

  • Each parent’s financial wellbeing
  • Each parent’s physical and mental health
  • The child’s relationship with their community
  • Cultural, religious, and educational considerations
  • Evidence of child abuse as well as parental drug and/or alcohol problems
  • If either parent has been convicted of a crime, especially domestic violence or a violent crime

About Parenting Plans in Florida

Most parenting plans in Florida need to address these issues:

  • Child support – Florida law has guidelines to help in the determination of child support payments but parenting plans can also include provisions for matters such as medical care, extracurricular activities, costs related to special needs children, daycare expenses, and more.
  • Time-sharing – Time-sharing is intended to lay out which parent will care for the child on which days. There are numerous issues that can be addressed in the time-sharing discussion, such as birthdays, holidays, vacations, and special occasions.
  • Parental responsibility – This part of the parenting plan is intended to clearly lay out each parent’s decision-making abilities for their child. It will address which parent can make decisions regarding the child’s medical care, extracurricular activities, education, religion, and more. A parent can have complete decision-making power or partial.
