Child custody laws in Florida

Child custody laws differ from state to state. Therefore, if you and your child are currently residing in Florida and you want to file for child custody, you must become familiar with Florida child custody laws.

The following is a brief overview of how child custody law in Florida applies to certain situations. Having a good understanding of these laws will help to increase your chances of being successful.

Is the Uniform Child Custody Act adopted?

The Uniform Child Custody Act was adopted in 1977. This makes it easier for Florida to work with other states who have adopted the act when it comes to interstate child custody disputes.

Can I file for joint custody in Florida?

It is possible to file for joint custody of a child in Florida. In many cases, Florida child custody courts may conclude that joint custody will be in the best interests of the child since it will mean that they can have a strong relationship with both of their parents.

What factors are considered by the courts in a custody hearing?

If a custody hearing before a judge is necessary, the judge will make decisions based on what is believed to be in the child's best interests. In considering this, they will consider which parent is more likely to take care of the daily physical, emotional and educational needs of the child, as well as who is more likely to maintain a loving and stable relationship with the child.

If you are worried about losing your relationship with your child, you should not delay taking action to file for custody in Florida.
