Child custody and visitation is parental time-sharing

Sometimes during the heat of divorce, the parents forget that their children are human beings and not bargaining chips. Across the United States, courts view the “best interest of the child” as the key factor in determining time-sharing schedules, and the elements of a parenting plan. In Florida, we call this parental time-sharing. Since parents will be in each other’s lives even after a divorce is final, it is important to counsel clients in such a way that they are empowered. We give them the tools to maintain a positive relationship with the other parent for the benefit of their children. It is important to know the difference between time-sharing and parental responsibility, and the attorneys at Schwam-Wilcox & Associates educate their clients about both of these components to the parenting plan. Camy B. Schwam-Wilcox believes that parents should be the judge of what is in their child’s best interest. If you don’t want the judge to unilaterally decide for you, contact Orlando child custody lawyer Camy B. Schwam-Wilcox.
