Protecting Children and Your Parental Rights

Our attorney, Carmelina Marin, recognizes the impact a divorce can have on children. Whenever possible, we try to help our clients reach some type of sensible custody arrangement with the other parent. We also recognize that there are times when litigation is the only way to accomplish your goals. While we are compassionate with our clients and their children, we are ready to present a compelling claim before a judge when necessary.

Florida Custody Laws

Under Florida child custody laws, judges must make arrangements that are in the best interests of the child. When deciding what is in a child’s best interests, the judge is required to look at many factors, including:

  • Each parent’s ability to facilitate and encourage a close parent-child relationship
  • Each parent’s ability to consider the child’s needs
  • How each parent’s geographic location will affect the parenting plan, particularly in terms of traveling for visitation
  • The physical, mental and moral fitness of each parent
  • The child’s preferences, if the child is mature enough to express a preference

Is Florida a 50/50 Child Custody State?

Florida is a 50/50 child custody state, meaning both parents share custody and have equal parenting time. Nevertheless, no law in Florida requires parents to have 50/50 custody or parenting time.

In most cases, a judge is likely to order some type of shared parenting arrangement. With this said, judges have significant discretion in these matters. With more than two decades of family law experience, we understand how judges are likely to view your case, and will be candid with you about the strengths and any possible weaknesses. We will help you avoid any parenting plan pitfalls and work tirelessly to put you and your child in the best position moving forward.
