Lakeland Child Custody Lawyer

When a child or children are involved in a divorce, child custody and visitation schedules are often ground zero in the importance of the outcome of the divorce.

Child Custody and Visitation issues that may have to be resolved or ruled upon by the court before a divorce an be finalized often include:

Child Custody and Shared Parenting

Shared parental responsibility for the care, custody and control of a child may be ordered by a given court. Although one parent may be awarded "primary residential parent", both of the parents retain full parental rights and responsibilities with respect to their children. This allows both parents to have equal say in major decisions while fully discussing issues relating to their children, after each of the parent's concerns have been expressed.

In certain situations, each parent may have an equal right to be declared the primary residential custodian of the minor child. The Court makes a ruling with regard to what it deems is in the best interests and welfare of the minor child. The Court will take into account various factors it believes will directly affect the welfare of the minor child in determining which parent will be the primary residential parent. One factor the courts often consider is which parent is more likely to allow contact between the secondary residential parent and the child. A parent who is less willing to allow visitation between the child and secondary residential parent could do more harm for the child's best interests than good. The Court takes into account other factors too.

Modifications of child support, child custody, and visitation

On occasion, the parties may need to modify child support, child custody, and visitation. Again, the parties have certain rights but so do the children that benefit from the modifications.
