Child Custody and Visitation - Parenting Plans in Florida

A Child Custody and Visitation case was recently decided by the Florida Court of Appeal in a case captioned Scudder v. Scudder. The parties were married in 2001 in India, and have three children. When the husband and wife lived in the United Arab Emirates, they entered into a marital settlement agreement. The marital settlement agreement covered some financial issues involving the children, discussed child support, and set forth a timesharing schedule. The Husband then filed for divorce in Collier County, Florida. After filing for divorce in Collier County, Florida, the Husband and the children moved to Palm Beach County. The Circuit Court in Collier County, Florida transferred the case to the Circuit Court in Palm Beach County, Florida for purposes of resolving timesharing issues pertaining to the children. The parties agreed that a social investigation could be conducted. The social investigator filed a report and recommendation with the Court.
