Sole & Joint Custody

Child custody laws in the State of Florida are designed to protect the best interests of the child and favor frequent contact with both parents. They also encourage parents to share the rights and responsibilities. Because of this, it is often best for both parents to come to an agreement with a joint custody arrangement whenever possible. However, in some circumstances, it may be in the best interests of the child to award one parent sole custody.

Courts will take a variety of factors into account when determining child custody arrangements, such as:

  • How suitable each physical home environment is
  • Love, affection, and emotional ties between each parent and their child
  • Mental health, physical health, and morality of each parent
  • The reasonable preferences of the child
  • Any evidence of abuse or neglect in the home
  • Any evidence of drug or alcohol abuse in the home
  • Which parent is more likely to allow contact between the child and the secondary residential parent
