Fifty-fifty Division of Time in Florida

Child Custody & Visitation – Fifty-fifty Division of Time in Florida There is no presumption for a time-sharing schedule calling for a fifty-fifty division of time. “Florida Statutes, to now state: ‘There is no presumption…for or against any specific time-sharing schedule when creating or modifying the parenting plan of the child.’ Ch. 2009-180, § 3, at 1853, Laws of Fla. (emphasis added). Thus, there is no presumption under current Florida law for or against any particular time sharing schedule, including one calling for a fifty-fifty division of time. Instead, the sole requirement is that the time-sharing schedule must be set in accordance with ‘the best interests of the child. ‘ See §61.13(3),Fla. Stat. (2010).” Schwieterman v. Schwieterman
