Child Custody or Paternity

Did you know that the words “custody” and “visitation” have been removed from most parts of the Florida Statutes? Instead, the legislature has determined that each child shall be entitled to a parenting plan, which includes a time-sharing schedule. All parenting plans should be in each child’s best interests. Typically, parenting plans will include the following:

Often when we speak outside of a courtroom, we continue to use the words custody and visitation so that we can more easily communicate with our clients at the onset of the family law litigation process. However, Attorney Holly feels it is important to inform clients in custody cases of changes in the law that could affect the outcome of a case.

Did you know that not every father who has a child born out of marriage is required to take a paternity test in order to prove that he is the father? While paternity tests may be needed if there is a disagreement as to the father’s identity, more often than not paternity tests present an unnecessary expense.
