Child Custody
And Time-Sharing

Miami Child Custody Attorney

Florida courts are so emphatic about both parents remaining actively involved in their child’s life following a divorce or the end of a nonmarital relationship that they no longer use the terms “custody” or “visitation.” Instead, the courts incorporate “time sharing” into a parenting plan, giving mothers and fathers equal rights to spend time with their child.

Additionally, the courts encourage parents to reach agreement on a time-sharing plan without court intervention. By doing so, parents avoid prolonged and heated disputes that can have serious and negative repercussions on children. What’s more, the parents retain more control over the look and feel of their parenting roles going forward.

Of course, not all couples are able to resolve time-sharing issues outside of court. The Miami law office of Ronald H. Kauffman, A Professional Association, has a strong track record of helping individuals throughout South Florida resolve parenting plan issues both in and out of court. Ron is a trained mediator with a proven ability to help parties find common ground and resolve disputes, whether it concerns time sharing or another aspect of family law such as property division.

Assisting With Enforcement, Modifications And Relocation

The firm helps clients get parenting plans right the first time around. However, the fast pace of change in today’s mobile society often creates circumstances that require changes be made to existing time-sharing agreements. Ron can help you petition for a parenting plan modification or defend against a requested change.

If one parent seeks to move with a child more than 50 miles away from the child’s other parent, a petition must be filed and approval received from a Florida court. Whether you are pursuing a relocation or want to prevent your child’s other parent from moving away with your child, it is important to involve an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. The relocation process can take several months or even more than a year to resolve.
