Parents Have The Opportunity To Agree On Custody And Their Parenting Plan

When parents agree on how to share custody, their parenting plan is included as part of their divorce agreement and signed off on by the judge handling their case. In some cases, the parents are able to reach an agreement on their own. In other cases, they may need to participate in mediation or collaboration to reach those agreements. Both of these alternative dispute resolution methods allow each party to express their desires and concerns in an environment that is less intimidating than a courtroom.

Without the need for court intervention, they can also save a considerable amount of time and money. These methods are typically not suited for couples with a lot of conflict between them, because they are required to engage in constructive and respectful discussion. Our experienced Plymouth men’s custody lawyers can help you determine if collaboration or mediation are viable options for you and your former spouse.

What Happens When Parents Can’t Agree On Custody

When parents cannot come to an agreement on their own or through any other means, a judge will be the one to make the final decision. Florida family courts operate under a 50/50 custody presumption, meaning equal custody is presumed to be in the child’s best interests unless there is substantial evidence proving otherwise. A judge will also consider the following before issuing their final ruling:

  • Parental responsibilities
  • The child’s current living arrangements
  • The well-being of each parent
  • The child’s preferences
  • The consistency of each parent’s lifesty;e
  • Each parent’s level of involvement
  • Any instances of substance abuse issues
  • Cooperativeness
  • And more.

Each of our Plymouth men’s custody lawyers are capable litigators, putting you in the best position if your custody matter does end up before a judge.
