The revised Florida Family Law Statutes adopted a public policy that attempts to ensure the minor child of a couple maintains constant contact with both parents, barring extraneous circumstances such as domestic violence or other situations in which the safety of the child is compromised. Under these revised laws courts usually attempt to fashion a child time sharing schedule that allows the child to spend significant time with both parents. Pursuant to Florida Statutes Section 61.046 (23) “Time-sharing Schedule” means a timetable that must be included in the parenting plan that specifies the time, including overnights and holidays, that a minor child will spend with each parent. The child time sharing schedule shall be:
- Developed and agreed to by the parents of a minor child and approved by the court; or
- Established by the court if the parents cannot agree or if their agreed-upon schedule is not approved by the court.
