Protecting Your Interests In Time-Sharing Cases

While some people still use the term custody, Florida law no longer recognizes the term. Instead, it has replaced custody with time-sharing. Time-sharing outlines how much time each parent can spend with their child following a separation from their spouse. In addition to impacting the amount of child support you may need to pay, a fair time-sharing agreement is critical for maintaining a strong, healthy relationship with your children.

The lawyers of Pilka & Associates, P.A., have solved complex issues involving parenting time for more than 30 years. Whether it is a relatively simple time-sharing agreement or something more complicated, we have helped families throughout south-central Florida with the following issues:

  • Child relocation proceedings when one parent wants to move their child more than 50 miles from the other parent
  • Modification of time-sharing due to a substantial change in circumstances
  • High-conflict situations that make it difficult for parents to collaborate
  • Adoption of minor children by stepparents and others involved in the child's life

The Child's Best Interest Is Our Focus

We understand that legal disputes over time-sharing and other family law matters are often emotionally charged and highly contentious. For many parents, the thought of missing out on time with their child is devastating. We are here to help and protect your interests during this difficult time.

The stated purpose of time-sharing under Florida law is that each parent will have a meaningful and important relationship with his or her child, and that the parents will collaborate and communicate on major decisions for their child. Our goal is to reach a fair and sustainable resolution to your case that serves your child's best interests while providing you with sound legal advice and support along the way.
