Shared Parental Responsibility is the legal presumption in Florida regarding Parental Responsibility. The Court feels that both parents should be actively involved in their children’s lives, education, religious upbringing, health and welfare. The Court will grant Shared Parental Responsibility unless one parent is truly unfit and then the Court will grant Sole Parental Responsibility to the fit parent. Otherwise, both parents will work together jointly raising their children.
