Determining Child Custody in Tampa

Reach an Effective Solution with a Qualified Attorney

In Florida, child custody is determined according to a child's best interests. The decisions made in a child custody negotiation will have long-lasting effects on your family, and will determine the amount of time you can spend with your children. For legal guidance during this process, contact a Tampa child custody attorney from the Law Offices of Manuel Fajardo. We have over 24 years' experience in family law cases, and can help you work toward a favorable solution that benefits you and your children.

How Child Custody is Determined

Child custody or time-sharing in Florida is determined pursuant the factors contained in Florida statute 61.13. A number of factors come into play to determining custody or time-sharing that will be in a child's best interests. The judge determining your custody case will consider various aspects of a child's well-being when he decides on a time-sharing plan, if the parties themselves are not able to agree on a plan.

Any of the following factors can influence child custody plans:

  • The age of the children
  • A child's relationship with, and preference for, each parent
  • A history of abuse, neglect, or other harmful treatment
  • The child's needs and how they can be met by each parent
  • False accusations of poor parenting by one parent against the other
