Parenting Plans in Florida
A divorce is not only stressful and emotional for parents, but also for the children. A divorce may mean a change in their lifestyle, such as which parent they reside with and where, which school they attend, and how they spend time with their parents.

How Parenting Plans Work in Florida
The State of Florida requires that all spouses with children that are seeking a divorce determine a plan for child custody. In the State of Florida, this is known as a “parenting plan”. A parenting plan is a form that schedules the day(s) and time(s) that a child will spend with each parent. For parents who live far apart from each other, the plan can also include an agreed-upon location to exchange the child, as well as who covers travel expenses.
When drafting a parenting plan, it’s important to consider the following:
- How will everyday child care responsibilities and expenses be divided?
- How will time be shared between parents (and per child, if applicable)?
- How will health, school, and activities be divided?
- How will children communicate with both parents?
Both parents have equal say and time-sharing rights when determining a parenting plan. Although it is best for both parents to work together to divide and plan child custody and care, child-related expenses, and responsibilities, not every parent will agree. This is where we can help. Working with an experienced child custody law or parenting plan attorney in Stuart, Florida can help you with drafting a parenting plan.
