There is no term like “custody” in the Florida statutes, any more than there is a primary or secondary parent name in the Florida statutes. In Florida, both parents have time-sharing with their children. The court will order a time-sharing schedule that is in the best interests of the children taking into account the factors listed in Section 61.13, Florida Statutes. This plan is intended for cases of high conflict and frequent disagreements. It is typically developed with mediators or lawyers. All cases of liability require an education plan (sometimes called a custody agreement in other states). A plan describes how parents share rights and duties in their children`s education and contains time-sharing calendars. An educational plan is a document or information contained in a settlement agreement describing how parents will educate their children after the dissolution of the marriage. These provisions include, among others, the time-sharing calendar, the holiday-sharing calendar, provisions for extracurricular activities, education, childcare, contact between parents, contact between children and parents, and travel outside the state (or country). In the event of an appeal for paternity or dissolution of the marriage in which there are common children, the court will draw up an education plan.
Each child care plan will have rules for the subsistence of the children. The court will consider the income of both parents and apply the Guidelines for Child Assistance for the State of Florida. Daycares, individual needs and health care will be included. Both parents have the right to have access to recordings and information about the child, even if you have sole physical custody. This includes, but is not limited to, school, dental and medical records. The only way to prevent this is for a judge to sign (or approve an education plan) that expressly denies access to the other parent. If this provision is not put in competition, both parents have the same rights of registration and information. If you wish to establish paternity and parental leave, complete a petition to establish paternity and the associated exemption (Form 12.983 (a)). Whether you are the mother or father of the child, this form allows you to determine paternity, determine parental responsibility, define responsibility for time (also called “custody” or “parental leave”) and calculate the child`s maintenance.
The responsibility for applying for custody rests with you, the parent. If the couple was not married at the time of conception, it is by filing a so-called “paternity” action. Therefore, if the parent in the military designates a grandparent who time-share in his place, the court would impose such a designation. . . .
