As a Jacksonville custody lawyer, the new law Effective October 1, 2008, changed visitation and custody of the children. The goal of the new parenting plan statute is to isolate the children from the divorce proceedings as much as possible and to emphasize drafting a plan to help parents in divorce meet the child’s needs. As such, you may be entitled to more time-sharing or visitation or custody of your children than you realize. There are several factors the courts considered when parents are divorcing and custody and children are at issue.
There are certain things that MUST be contained in a parenting plan. Please contact a Florida or Jacksonville, FL custody lawyer or call me at 904-685-1200 to answer any questions you may have regarding the drafting of a parenting plan and what to include.
