Should I Hire A Child Custody Attorney in Jacksonville?

Essentially, you need to keep in mind the goal of a child custody hearing is to serve the best interests of the child by identifying the most proper child custody arrangement.

Normally, parents are advised to work with child custody lawyers when facing difficult or intricate child custody issues in Jacksonville, FL

Suppose you are a parent preparing divorce proceedings for your children’s other parent. In that case, it’s simply natural to want to secure as many child custody and visitation rights as you possibly can.

Unfortunately, it’s easy for some divorcing parents to slip into the trap of using custody as leverage, and this tactic rarely works out in any positive manner.

Nevertheless, the right custody lawyer can help you remain focused on what is most meaningful in your divorce and build a solid case for guardianship of your children.

Just a few of the factors considered when determining what is in the child’s best interests include:

  • Proposed and current living arrangements of the child
  • History of parental involvement in the child’s life
  • The child’s educational environment and development
  • Each parent’s current financial situation
  • Quality of the parental plan
  • Willingness to adapt for the good of a child or co-parent’s changing needs
  • Presence of domestic violence

Defining Child Custody in Florida

First and foremost, child custody lays out the rights and obligations of both parents in regards to their children after some aspect of the parental relationship has changed, such as a legal separation, divorce, or paternity decree.

The courts will be addressing two different types of custody:

  • Physical custody -, determines where the child lives, and
  • Legal custody - outlines a parent’s rights to make decisions about education, medical care, religion, and overall welfare

Each of these types of custody may be sole, primary, or joint custody. Generally speaking, one parent will be designated as the primary custodial parent with whom the child will live, and the other parent will have a visitation schedule in Florida.

Can a Father Get Sole Custody of His Child in Florida?

On rare occasions, either parent would gain sole responsibility and custody in Florida. Nevertheless, it is not impossible. For a father to have full custody in Florida, he must show evidence to the court that any parental responsibility given to the mother would damage the children involved.
