Fort Lauderdale Child Custody Lawyer

A divorce is often an unpleasant process. It becomes even more stressful if you have children and you are risking losing not only a significant portion of your assets but also the custody of your child. You want to ensure that the divorce goes smoothly, so as not to affect your children in a negative way. To do that, you may need professional legal help from a child custody lawyer, such as Karen D. Faulkner.

Florida Parenting Plan

The child custody laws in the State of Florida changed in October 2008.  Now, all child custody cases involving a minor child require a parenting plan.  Child custody and visitation are words no longer used to designate how the parents will share in the upbringing of their children.  The parenting plan focuses on three major parenting issues: parental responsibility, timesharing and support.  The Law Office of Karen D. Faulkner, P.A., can help you prepare a parenting plan that will work for both parents and the minor children and will ensure that your children will be raised with their best interests in mind.

Parents Decide or the Judge Decides

When it comes to the minor children, it is always best when the parents can negotiate a parenting plan that is flexible to fit the needs of both parents and still serve the best interests of the children. If the parents cannot agree on a parenting plan, the Court will decide the terms of the parenting plan which may prove to be too rigid and difficult to change.

Faulkner, P.A. will work hand in hand with you to negotiate a parenting plan that promotes health, welfare, safety and happiness of your children.  We understand that your children are the most important people in the world to you, and knowing this, we will work diligently to achieve a successful outcome.
