Parenting Plan in Boca Raton

Boca Raton Parenting Plan Attorney

In October 2008 Florida’s new parenting plan law came into effect, helping divorcing parents and their lawyers no longer argue about child “custody” and visitation issues. Instead, they are required to work together to develop parenting plans that describe in detail the ways parents will share responsibility for their children’s upbringing and schedule the time each parent has access to each child. What continues under the new law are several important principles about divorce and parenthood: Children of divorce must be given every opportunity to benefit from continuous and frequent contact and to have substantial relationships with both parents. Generally, divorced parents should share responsibility for raising their children. Conflicts between the parents are to be resolved according to the best interests of the children involved.
