Navigating the Complexities of Timesharing in Divorce

The concept of timesharing, previously known as custody, is an emotionally charged and sensitive topic profoundly affecting divorcing parents and their children. Finding common ground regarding timesharing is often the most challenging aspect of divorce.

For parents, timesharing signifies a significant shift in their roles and an inevitable loss of control over their children’s daily lives. For children, it introduces a world of uncertainty as they navigate between two households, grappling with loyalty conflicts regarding their love of both parents.

Using Mediation to Resolve Disagreements

When parents collaborate to create a mutually agreeable parenting plan, it can alleviate conflict and cultivate a more cooperative co-parenting environment. In situations with substantial disagreement,

mediation is an effective method to bridge gaps and reach a resolution. However, a judge will determine timesharing if a mutual agreement cannot be reached. If one parent does not adhere to the agreement, it can be enforced through court intervention.

Florida’s Timesharing Considerations

In Florida, multiple factors must be weighed, with the presumption that equal timesharing is in the child’s best interest. Courts aim to make decisions that provide the most stable, supportive, and nurturing environment for the child involved.

A Sampling of Factors Considered in Timesharing include:

  • The moral fitness of the parents
  • The parents’ willingness to meet the needs of the child
  • The child’s preferences
  • Parent-child relationships
  • Willingness to support the child’s relationship with the other parent
  • Stability of the home
  • The mental and physical health of the parents
  • Geographic proximity to schools, medical care, and extracurricular activities
  • Any history of domestic violence, substance abuse, or alcohol abuse
