SIMPLE DIVORCE FLORIDA CHILD CUSTODY ATTORNEY
Who is Responsible for Raising the Children in a Simple Divorce Florida?
“Best Interests of the Children” is all you need to know about how you should deal with all child related issues including, but not limited to, “custody” and visitation issues. The concept of “custody” does not exist in Florida divorce cases any longer. Instead, we talk in terms of parenting plans and time sharing. That said, a Florida child custody lawyer understand exactly what you are talking about if you use the term. The Florida divorce judge assigned to your case cares about that issue above all else.
In theory, both parents should share in making major decisions that impact the children: health, education, and religion being the most significant. Unless there is some compelling reason why one parent shouldn’t be involved in these decisions, you will have shared parental responsibility. On a day-to-day basis, the parent that has the children makes decisions about what they eat, wear to school, shows they watch on T.V., computer time and, most importantly, bedtime. It’s always best if parents discuss and resolve differences of opinions regarding day-to-day living. The judge assigned to your case does not want to micromanage the lives of your children. Look, if one parent isn’t giving Timmy his asthma medicine sure, go see the judge. Other than a health or safety issue, don’t bother involving your child custody attorney; waste of time and money.
