Child Custody And Visitation in Palm Beach County, Florida

It is not in a child’s best interests to rotate schools. “In Langford v. Ortiz, 654 So. 2d 1237, 1238 (Fla. 2d DCA 1995), this court similarly held that it was not in the best interest of the child to require the child, who was in the second grade, to rotate schools at the beginning of December and the beginning of June every year. This court noted that attending two different schools during the school year would be ‘a disruption in this young girl’s academic and personal life, no matter how much her parents work to smooth the transition.’ Id.; see Bainbridge v. Pratt, 36 Fla. L. Weekly D1699 (Fla. 1st DCA Aug. 4, 2011)” Otto-Jones v. Jones
