Jupiter Divorce – Timesharing
Previously called Visitation
In 2008 various Florida statues were revised and amended governing divorce, child custody, and family law, including some common terminology associated with divorces and child custody. One such amendment was to change the term “Visitation Plan” to “Parenting Plan” or “Timesharing”.
In short, the changes were designed to eliminate stigmas attached to divorced parents and encourage Florida courts to craft custody arrangements that allow BOTH parents a greater role in their children’s lives. Consequently, divorced parents in Florida are encouraged to preserve the family unit as much as it is possible and beneficial to the parents and children.
The new Timesharing or Parenting Plans require a much more detailed and comprehensive plan for joint parenting, spelling out in specific detail the needs of the children and how the parents will work together to meet those needs.
