The state of Florida no longer assigns primary or secondary custody; instead, time is usually split 50/50. If the parents cannot agree or the courts find that equal time sharing is not in the child’s best interest, one parent may be granted custody for the majority of the time.
How is Custody Determined?
During a divorce, parents will need to come to an agreement regarding time sharing and decision making. This is called a parenting plan and must still be submitted in writing for official approval from the court.
