How Florida Determines Child Custody
During custody proceedings, Florida courts will focus on protecting the
best interests of children. This means a variety of circumstances need
to be addressed in order to determine whether a parent can provide for
a child, or whether a parent is not fit or capable of meeting their best
Having worked numerous custody proceedings for a diverse clientele, we
are familiar with what courts look for when determining custody, and how
to protect both the needs of children and parents. Factors courts consider
during custody matters include:
- A child’s age and, if they are mature enough, their preference.
- Each parent’s ability to provide emotionally and financially for a child.
- Stability of a child’s education, living situation, and growth.
- Parents’ willingness to co-parent and communicate
- Parents’ respective relationship with a child
Because all custody cases are different, we develop individualized case
strategies that can protect our clients’ unique needs and goals.
These are important matters to clients and families – and they can
have a long-term impact on multiple lives. As such, we never use a one-size-fits-all formula.
