-- Child custody matters in the state of Florida
When a marriage ends and children are involved, they become a primary concern of every divorcing parent. Because they don't understand the situation or even feel as if it's their fault, children often struggle with divorce. Parents have to take extra precautions when going through a divorce to ensure that it is as smooth a process as possible, and children who might already feel vulnerable do not get caught up in the middle of their parents' disagreements.
The first thing parents should discuss is a "parenting plan." This plan documents each spouse's parental responsibilities. It discusses living situations, school-related matters, time-sharing schedules and even health care. Every concern should be addressed and laid out in the plan in order to decide what is in the child's best interest.
The State of Florida works to ensure that both parents are involved in the child-rearing process after a divorce. The court does not typically award one parent full custody and deny the other parent visitation rights because it is usually best for the child to spend as much time as possible with each parent. The court only rules in one parent's favor if it finds that a particular living environment would be dangerous to the child. Florida courts are driven by the notion to look at the best interests of the child, and they will take into account all factors when making custody decisions.
Under Florida law, each parent has a duty to promote a good relationship between the child and the other parent, recognizing that in most situations, children are better off having contact with both parents. No parent should attempt to interfere with the other parent's contact with the child, and each parent must make reasonable efforts not to injure the child's opinion of the other parent.
