Child Custody

Visitation Rights


Divorce can be especially difficult for the children involved. Unless there is a good reason to the contrary, every child will benefit from having regular contact with both of his or her parents.

Legally speaking, the term parenting time is used to describe visitation that a father or mother is awarded by a court. Under Florida law, child custody and visitation are determined based on what the court believes are the best interests of children.
