The Child Custody Process

Understanding the Child Custody Process from Tampa Lawyer

For parents who are going through divorce or in cases where another caregiver seeks to acquire rights as a legal guardian, child custody is perhaps the most important of all concerns. For those who cannot come to an amicable custody agreement, the custody issue can be put before the court to make an appropriate decision. It is the court's desire to put the child in the best home, given all available information. All decisions made by the court are final, and all parties involved must adhere to the requirements of the judgment or risk returning to court to face penalties and potential custody modification.

Florida Laws Regarding Child Custody
