Child Visitation

In Florida courts, the language around visitation has changed in recent years. Visitation is now known as time-sharing, and the agreement that outlines time-sharing is known as a parenting plan.

While the terminology may have changed, the concepts remain the same. During a divorce or when handling a custody matter outside of a divorce, a parenting plan must be developed to outline how much time a child will spend with each parent. It can also include important details such as:

  • Work and school schedules
  • Holidays, vacations and birthdays
  • Whether the parents will share decision-making and responsibilities
  • Extracurricular activities, including costs and attendance

Above all, any parenting plan must center around what is in the best interests of your child. An experienced attorney can help you understand what that means for you and your family.

Experienced Lawyer for Visitation Arrangements

At the Lane Law Firm, P.A., we have extensive experience handling all types of time-sharing and visitation issues. We can help you devise a parenting plan that takes into account the needs of your family and that is tailored to your unique needs.

Our senior attorney, Matthew Lane, is a Palm Beach County child visitation lawyer with more than 30 years of trial experience. In addition to handling time-sharing and custody issues, we can help you with all matters that affect your family, including alimony, division of property and assets, child support and other matters.

Visitation and Child Support

Your parenting plan can have a direct effect on the amount of child support a child receives, and any changes to a parenting plan can lead to a change in the amount of child support. For example, if the paying parent increases the amount of overnights, then there may be a reduction in the amount of support that parent pays.

When devising your parenting plan, we will help you take into account all impacts the plan may have on your child’s life and your future. This includes developing negotiation and litigation strategies to resolve child support and other related issues.
