Modification of Timesharing

            For couples with children in Orlando, Florida, a Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage (or Divorce) will include a parenting plan and timesharing schedule.  This will detail how the parents will share and be responsible for the daily tasks associated with the upbringing of the children; the timesharing arrangement with each parent; a designation of who will be responsible for healthcare, school-related matters, etc.; and the methods and technologies that the parents will use to communicate with the children.
            Modification of a parenting plan and timesharing schedule (or visitation) requires a showing of substantial, material and unanticipated change of circumstances.  The party seeking modification has the burden of proof of this change.  The change must have occurred since entry of the final judgment and be in the children’s best interests.  As for the determination of the children’s best interests, it is the public policy of the state of Florida that each of the minor children has frequent and continuing contact with both parents after the parents separate or the marriage of the parties is dissolved and to encourage parents to share the rights and responsibilities, and joys of childrearing.
