Child Custody

Child Custody becomes an issue when you separate from the other parent.  Whether you are  married or not, the Court will determine a Parenting Schedule for your children, if you and the other parent cannot agree on a schedule (or Parenting Plan)

Parenting Plan

Florida law requires that a parenting plan is created for all Family Law cases involving children that are minors.   This Agreement (or Parenting Plan) must include details on how each of the parents will be responsible for raising their child.  

This aspect of Florida family law can be very complicated. Therefore it is essential that you speak with an experienced Florida child custody attorney like Steven Fichtman. The Law Office of Steven D Fichtman has successfully helped clients with their child custody cases. Contact Mr. Fichtman, child custody lawyers today for professional legal advice about your case.

Factors for Child Custody

There are many factors that the Court will consider when determining parenting time for each spouse, Such as:

  • Each parent's ability to maintain a stable home environment,
  • The work schedules of both parents.
  • The mental, physical and moral standing of both parents.
  • Any incidents of domestic violence, abuse or drug use.

Best Interest of your Child

In child custody cases, the court will always be guided by the best interest of the child. Thus, all legal custody orders, physical custody orders, and visitation orders are based on the best interest of your child.
