Parenting Time Plan

Experienced Timesharing Attorney in South Florida

Understanding Child Custody Laws in Broward County

One of the many issues that will need to be decided and resolved in divorce or a paternity case is that of timesharing or "child custody". As a biological or adoptive parent, you have a right to visitation and / or custody of your child. Timesharing can be a very difficult issue to resolve, but it may be in the best interest of the child to spend time with both parents. It is important to know that you will need to establish a timesharing schedule and detailed plan to show the judge. Without a detailed plan, you could be told what your arrangements will be for timesharing without your input. To avoid this from happening speak with a Broward County divorce lawyer from my firm today for help with your timesharing agreement.

If you and the other parent are unable to come to an agreement regarding timesharing, then you may suffer from highly undesirable circumstances as the judge will make this decision for you. This is a prime example of a specific aspect of a family law case in which it may be very beneficial for you to compromise and discuss a solution with the other parent in order to get a favorable decision that works for both parties. It is also important for you to put the child's interests first in this situation; a judge will make these decisions based on the needs and best interests of the child.

Creating Effective Parenting Plans in Florida

In October of 2008, Florida family law decided to remove the term "visitation" and replace it with "parenting plans," but they are still one in the same. The reason for the change in terms is to promote unison and cooperation between divorced or unmarried parents that are parenting children together. In the state of Florida, primary visitation rights are typically given to the noncustodial parent or the parent that has secondary residential custody of the children. This is when a parenting plan comes into effect as it helps coordinate a schedule in accordance with the best interests of the children and the desires of both parties. As a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator.

When determining a parenting plan, the family court will take several different factors into account. The age of the children and the family circumstances play an important role. For example, if the children are of the age where they need to attend school, then there may be certain visitation limitations during the weekdays. The family court will form the provisions of the parenting plan to work best with your situation.

What to Include in Your Parenting Plan


Creating a parent plan is essential when children are involved in a divorce or have unmarried parents. This plan is also crucial for establishing a healthy working relationship with the other parent. In some states, such as Florida, they even require that you establish a parenting plan as part of your child custody/ timesharing agreement. 

When putting together a parenting plan, there are numerous elements that must be included. The minimum factors to incorporate in your parenting plan include:

  • A residential schedule for the children
  • A visitation schedule for the children
  • A proposed custody schedule for the holidays
  • Transportation arrangements for the children
  • Car seat arrangements
  • Changes to the schedule as the children get older
  • Proposed schedules for school vacations
  • How to exchange the children neutrally or work through schedule changes peacefully
  • Child care arrangements
  • Who the primary babysitter will be (if not a parent)
  • How to handle relocation requests
  • How to approach contact with extended family members
  • Whether or not there will be contact with friends or dating partners of the parents

A parenting plan can include even minute things that are not necessarily required but are in accordance with the preferences of the parenting parties. If there are certain things that you and the other parent feel strongly about, you should include these things in your plan. A few examples of these would include a curfew, dietary requirements, sleeping arrangements, participation in church or in school events and field trips, internet use and restrictions on piercings or tattoos.
