When it comes to deciding who will have child custody when filing for divorce, family law cases often become highly emotional and difficult. In the state of Florida, a court can grant two kinds of child custody. When sole custody is granted, the court makes one parent responsible of the child's welfare and is authorized to make decisions about the child's daily life. When joint custody is awarded, the court grants both parents with legal and physical custody so that the child can spend significant amounts of time with both parents.
Courts often grant parents shared custody in an effort to allow both parents and children to spend quality time together and continue building strong relationships. A time sharing agreement is made in order to avoid any conflicts and ensure that the child spends time with both parents.
