Parenting Time/Responsibility

In the State of Florida family law cases involving children require that the parents or the Court develop a Parenting Plan that provides guidelines for Parenting Time and Parental Responsibility. These guidelines are always based on what is in the best interests of the children, and there are many factors the Court will consider in making such determination.

Parenting Time

Parenting Time refers to the schedule for when the children spend time with each parent. It addresses the division of weekends, weekdays, holidays, birthdays, vacations, etc. The purpose of the schedule is to avoid disruptions in the children’s lives, always keeping their best interests a top priority.

Parental Responsibility

Parental Responsibility refers to who has the right to make decisions regarding major issues of health, welfare, religious training, and education of the children. Shared Parental Responsibility means that both parents have a right to be involved in and to make the decisions. Sole Parental Responsibility means that one parent makes the decisions and occurs in extraordinary circumstances.
