How Is Child Custody Determined?

There are numerous kinds of child custody arrangements that a family lawyer can help navigate. The primary concern of Florida courts is establishing a child custody situation that is beneficial to the child. Ultimately, no one knows your child like you do, and working with an advocate helps to ensure that your voice is heard.

Custody arrangements include the following:

  • Parental Responsibility: The ability of a parent to make decisions regarding the child’s welfare, health, or education; and
  • Timesharing: The living arrangement and physical presence of a parent with their child.

Florida law generally favors shared parental responsibility and frequent and continuing contact with both parents; however, a knowledgeable child custody lawyer can show that this situation may not be in the child’s best interests. Timesharing can depend on where the child goes to school, where each parent lives, and how schedules can be arranged. Since this can range from the child residing equally with both parents, to primarily with one parent, to never with one parent, always be prepared by working with Attorney Daniels.

What the Court Considers in a Child Custody Arrangement

There are guidelines that a court follows when establishing child custody. These are all considered before making a judgment.

Some factors the court will consider when determining custody include:

  • The child’s education and home history
  • Mental, physical, and moral status of the parents
  • Stability and continuity of the child’s home life and routines
  • The ability of the parents to provide
  • The emotional connections between the parents and child
  • Timesharing and co-parenting agreements

The judge has the ability to require the parents to complete certain tasks before making a final determination. For example, a parent may be asked to take additional parenting courses, or be required to have supervised visits for a certain period of time, or to undergo a substance abuse evaluation and treatment. To best understand how your family may be affected by a child custody arrangement, turn to the experienced child custody attorney at Daniels Law, P.A.
