Parenting Plan in Florida

Posted by Antonio G. Jimenez, Esq. | Feb 20, 2023 | 0 Comments

A Florida parenting plan is a legal document outlining how parents will share parenting responsibilities and make decisions about their children after a divorce or separation. The plan is required by Florida law in all cases involving time-sharing with minor children.

The parenting plan should include details such as:

  1. A time-sharing schedule that specifies when the child will be with each parent, including weekends, holidays, and vacations.

  2. A method for resolving disputes between the parents, such as mediation or arbitration.

  3. How parents will communicate with each other and their child, including phone calls, emails, and other forms of electronic communication.

  4. How major decisions related to the child's health, education, and general welfare will be made, including the process for obtaining medical treatment and enrolling the child in school.

  5. Any other issues unique to the family, such as transportation arrangements, religious practices, or financial responsibilities.

The parenting plan must be approved by a judge and become a court order. Parents need to work together to create a plan that is in their child's best interests and to be flexible and cooperative as circumstances change over time.
