Protecting Your Relationship With Your Children

It is every child’s right to have frequent and continued contact with both parents after a divorce. In Florida, both parents have the right to weigh in on their children’s majoring decisions, particularly concerning education and health care. During a divorce, decision-making rights, as well as parental responsibility and visitation decisions, are determined through a parenting plan.

We understand what is at stake during a divorce, especially when it comes to your children. Our attorneys will take the time to explain your options while helping you make the best decisions for your children.

Extensive Experience Resolving Visitation And Responsibility Issues

Many parents are unsure of their rights regarding visitation, particularly as the noncustodial parent. They also may not know how to deal with time-sharing disagreements or differing opinions regarding decision-making for their children.

In most instances, Florida courts seek to award shared parental responsibilities, commonly referred to as custody, to both parents. This allows both parties to regularly spend time with their children while still being involved in key parental decisions. If there are instances of domestic violence, or if there is another factor that makes shared responsibilities not in the child’s best interest, the court may award sole parental responsibility to one parent.

With more than 75 years of combined experience, our lawyers can address any questions or concerns you may have. We will represent you in establishing or modifying parenting plans or enforcement actions.
