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

If a parent refuses to agree to changes in their child’s parenting plan, the other parent may request a Florida court to make the decision. Unless there is an immediate emergency, the court will not alter the plan without first having a hearing where both parents can express their opinions. 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. When deciding to modify a parenting plan, the court will take into account the child’s best interests. The court will then act in the child’s best interests so as to protect the child and their future.

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
