According to Florida Statute 61.13, it is the public policy of this state that each minor child has frequent and continuing contact with both parents. Your child custody lawyer Orlando can read to you the Statutory language which now specifies (including for unmarried dads) that timesharing should be equal: “after the parents separate or the marriage of the parties is dissolved and to encourage parents to share the rights and responsibilities, and joys, of childrearing.” Perhaps the language many of you now know, and want to verify, is that timesharing should be equal for the parents because the default position of the Florida family court is that equal timesharing is in your child’s best interests.
Orlando Custody Lawyer
However, Attorney Jacobs, custody lawyer Orlando, understands you may want to know there is a rebuttable presumption that equal time-sharing of a minor child is in the best interests of the minor child. What is a rebuttable presumption? It means that equal timesharing is not guaranteed. Both moms and dads may argue their case in court.
As a child custody lawyer, we know the types of arguments moms and dads make to the court. It is possible a lawyer will have their client argue how frequently they take their kids to the doctor, the dentist, school events, help with homework etc., and argue the other parent is not doing their fair share of parenting. Everything matters when an Orlando child custody lawyer argues your case before the family circuit court. Every text message, every e-mail, every communication in writing may be presented to the judge. Call 407-335-8113 today and learn about your parental rights.
