Parents of minor children should take great care when negotiating and litigating child custody arrangements. Known as “timesharing” in the Florida Statutes, this is one aspect of divorce that usually affects everyone involved for years after the marriage is dissolved. It’s important to establish parenting plans that promote positive communication and healthy environment for the child. Shapiro, Blasi, Wasserman & Hermann in Boca Raton advises South Florida parents on these matters and works tirelessly to find the best solution for their sons and daughters. Whether you and your spouse have the same ideas or are in serious conflict about how you should raise your children, we’ll provide strong guidance and advocacy.
Our family law attorneys have the experience to anticipate potential issues that might arise and to create a complete parenting plan that serves a strong foundation for everyone involved. In a free initial consultation, we’ll go over relevant aspects of the plan, such as:
Each child is unique and courts have wide-ranging authority to review factors that affect the child’s physical, emotional, social and educational well-being. Courts examine safety concerns, parental fitness, benefits of maintaining a child’s routine and each parent’s willingness to communicate with the other when evaluating what serves a son or daughter’s best interests.
Sometimes, a new job or family medical situation compels a custodial or noncustodial parent to find a new home. A parent who moves at least 50 miles from where they lived when custody terms were entered must obtain a revision to the order. If this occurs, our firm can try to reach an agreement with the other parent regarding timesharing and transportation. In relocation matters that go before a judge, we represent petitioning and responding parties, always focusing on what gives the child the best chance to maintain strong bonds with both parents. Our firm likewise handles other modification proceedings and develops compelling arguments regardless of the particular change that is sought.
