Parenting provisions regarding custody exchanges

Busy Florida parents barely have enough time to go grocery shopping, take their kids to school and get to work on time. Adding into your schedule the need to meet up with your ex-spouse for a child custody exchange can become the straw that breaks your schedule's back -- especially if your spouse is continually late or misses your appointments.

2 factors to think about in your shared custody plan

Shared physical child custody arrangements can be an excellent situation for the parents and the children alike. For one, the arrangements will benefit the children because they'll get to spend more time with both their mothers and their fathers on a weekly basis. Secondly, the parents will both be given a certain amount of break time to themselves when the children are with the other parent.

Will I be able to spend time with my children after the divorce?

Imagine facing the threat that you'll never get to see or spend time with your children again. The thought seems unimaginable to most parents, but for some Florida mothers and fathers this threat is real. Regardless of how it happens -- be it because the parent was convicted of a crime, convicted of committing abuse, accused of child neglect or some other reason -- some parents never get to see their kids.

Information about parental child abduction cases

The most common kind of kidnapping is done by one of the parents of the child. This parent may not agree with the child custody orders and decide to take matters into his or her own hands by taking the child and keeping him or her in violation of a court's ruling. When these instances happen, the law offers the means for the other parent to get his or her child returned.

Under what circumstances can parents lose their parental rights?

A parent could suffer the termination of his or her parental rights under various circumstances. Courts usually will not order the termination of parental rights, however, unless a parent presents some kind of risk to the child, has abandoned the child or is unfit to serve as a parent.
