Am I Allowed to Change My Child Custody Plan in Tampa?
In order for the Florida court system to step in and change a current parenting plan, you will need to have experienced extraordinary, unforeseen circumstances that alter the previous child custody agreement.
A few examples of a change in circumstance are:
- When parents cannot agree to proposed changes in a parenting plan
- A parent refuses to follow the current plan
- The child is living in a potentially harmful situation
- One parent moves somewhere that disrupts the time-sharing agreement
How to Modify Time-Sharing Agreements in Florida
Equal time-sharing is now presumed to be in the best interests of the child. In the context of a modification proceeding, if a party relocates within 50 miles of the other parent and child after having resided more than 50 miles away as stated in the previous order, this relocation may be recognized as a significant and material change in circumstances that may necessitate a modification to the timesharing schedule.
While it’s possible to settle on a parenting plan outside of court, but it’s always your best bet to hire experienced legal representation to make sure your updated agreement is the best choice for your child. Florida law can be confusing and frustrating. Let us guide you through it.
