Is Child Timesharing Different Than Child Custody?
Child timesharing is one aspect of child custody handled by our attorney. Child custody generally refers to physical custody and legal custody of a child or, more specifically, who the child spends time with and who makes decisions for the child’s welfare. Child timesharing further defines how physical custody is handled.
For instance, one parent may be with the child during weekdays and the other parent with the child on weekends. Depending on the circumstances of each parent, child timesharing may even be different within a single day. For example, one parent may take a child to school and another may pick them up and take them home. Many different scenarios exist, and each one depends on the daily routines, needs and terms negotiated between the parents.
What If Parents Don’t Agree on the Timesharing Terms?
In situations where both parents cannot come to an agreement on a child timesharing arrangement, the court will base its decision on the facts of the situation and the best interests of the child. In cases like these, our family lawyer counsels parents to try to reach an agreement outside of court so that they are in control of the arrangement and not a judge. At LAW FIRM OCALA, our focus is on negotiation and compromise so amicable agreements can be reached without court intervention.
