Modification of Time Sharing
Handled By a Family Law Attorney in Stuart
Children grow up quickly and as they do, so do their needs, interests, and goals. If you have a parenting plan for your child, you and your child’s other parent will likely have to make at least several changes to the plan as the child matures. In Florida, it is usually extremely easy to modify these plans so long as both parties are agreeable to the alterations. This is because the state encourages both parents to work together and compromise as much as possible for the sake of the children. However, making changes to a parenting plan can quickly become a laborious nightmare if the other parent is not amenable to the changes.

The Process for Modifying a Time Sharing Plan
Modifying Parenting Plan
If a parent refuses to agree to changes in their child’s parenting plan, the other parent may request that a Florida court make the decision. Once the court has heard both parent's opinions, the court will then act in the child’s best interests so as to protect the child and their future.
Even in the rare case where a court modifies a plan without a hearing due to an emergency, the court will usually have a hearing shortly afterward in order to determine if the modification was the right choice. Ultimately when deciding to modify a parenting plan, the child’s best interests are what the court prioritizes.
Modifying a Time Sharing Plan Includes a Variety of Factors
The court will take into account the following factors when making its decision:
- Family ties the child has
- Consistency in the life of the child
- The physical and emotional safety of the child
- Both parent’s respective wishes (will try to be as equitable as possible)
The court will most likely not take into account these factors:
- The incomes of either parent
- Whom the child wishes to spend more or less time with
- Whether or not one of the parents has violated their parenting time agreement
