Give Your Child All the Time They Need with You
In Florida, the term time sharing is used to describe child custody and
visitation arrangements. Time-sharing orders are issued by a court and
must be adhered to by both parents of a child. If you have a time-sharing
concern or if you’re unclear about how the law relates to you and
your child or children, an experienced child custody lawyer can help you
find a solution to your
family law matter. Let Conti Moore Law, PLLC help you resolve your time-sharing issue.

When to Change Custody Arrangements
At Conti Moore Law, PLLC, we understand custody and visitation issues because
we handle them every day, serving mothers and fathers alike in resolving
time-sharing matters of all kinds.
Our attorneys can help you find specific answers to important questions like:
Is an unmarried mother of a child the default custodian? In many cases, but it depends on the situation.
Does a mother have to let a father see his child? It depends on the situation. When paternity is established, a father can
obtain visitation rights.
How does child support relate to time sharing? Florida courts use formulas to dictate if
child support will be paid, and, if so, how much. We can help you understand how these
formulas relate to your situation.
Why is the Florida Department of Revenue involved in my custody situation? If your child was born outside a marriage, the Department of Revenue may
intervene if benefits are being paid by the state.
Can I increase the amount of time I spend with my son or daughter? In some situations, you can petition a court for
modification of your time-sharing or child custody order.
What if the mother or father of my child is not being cooperative about
custody or visitation arrangements? We can help you pursue enforcement of time-sharing orders if the other
parent is not allowing you to see your child.
How Is Child Custody Determined in Florida?
The child’s best interests are always the priority when deciding
upon custody. The courts will evaluate several factors that contribute
to this decision, in order to ensure the child has the best chance to
thrive emotionally, physically, and mentally well into adulthood.
These factors include:
- The child’s current home situation
- How each parent plans to financially support the child
- How each parent plans to continue building a relationship with the child
- Whether or not a parent has had trouble with substance abuse or alcoholism
- The child’s educational, religious, or medical needs
- Each parent’s ability to make decisions together on raising their child
If at all possible, the courts will try to seek a joint custody situation
to maintain the child’s relationship with both parents. If the child
is old enough and can reasonably voice his or her concerns, their wishes
will also be considered.
