Florida Law Governing Custody And Visitation

Under Florida law, judges make custody and visitation decisions on a case-by-case basis, taking into account a variety of considerations. A thorough understanding of the factors that influence this decision is essential to presenting a strong case.

Some of these factors include:

  • The demonstrated capacity to encourage a close parent-child relationship with the other parent
  • The capacity to place the child's needs first
  • The parents' mental and physical health
  • The extent to which parental responsibilities will be delegated to third parties
  • The moral fitness of the parents
  • The parenting tasks customarily performed by each parent
  • Maintenance of a substance-free environment
  • Not disparaging the other parent

Our firm can help you present a strong case in initial custody determinations, as well as in modification proceedings or in proposed child relocations.
