We Can Help You Draft a Fair Parenting Plan

A parenting plan is an extremely important element to any divorce proceeding involving minor children. In fact, the state of Florida requires that all divorcing parents work to put a parenting plan in place. Parenting plans are important because they dictate and outline the responsibilities (both physical and psychological) of each parent as they relate to the child. In a typical agreement, both parents will share the major and day-to-day responsibilities of raising the child.

Taking action early can not only avoid any unnecessary involvement of the court, but it can also help ensure that you can obtain an adequate amount of time with your child. If you and the other parent are not able to come to a mutual agreement, the court will hear testimony and evidence from both parties to establish a plan that represents the best interests of the child(ren).

In making this decision, the Florida statute mandates that the court consider the following factors, among others:

  • Promoting a continuous relationship between the child(ren)and both parents
  • Whether each parent appears willing to facilitate and encourage a relationship with the child(ren)
  • Which parent is best able to maintain a stable environment for the child(ren)
  • The mental and physical stability of each parent and their moral fitness
  • The child’s preference if they are of a reasonable age to understand the situation and demonstrates sufficient intelligence
