When determining child time-sharing between the parents, the court will make the determination that they find to be in the child’s best interest. In Florida, the standard of the court is to assume that it is in the child’s best interest to have equitable time with both parents unless there are circumstances present, such as abuse, to prove otherwise.

Any time you are establishing a time-sharing schedule or parenting-plan you should be represented by a custody lawyer who will ensure you rights as a parent are protected and the best interests of your children are observed.
