This starts with working toward a desirable parenting arrangement.

What Is Visitation?

In Florida, visitation is essentially about timesharing and determining when, where, and how often you will spend time with your child after divorce. In some cases, one spouse becomes the custodial parent after divorce and the other is given visitation rights by the court. When this happens, you and your ex must put together a visitation schedule and detailed arrangement about the dates, times, and locations of your visitation. If you can’t agree on the terms, the court will decide for you.

What if I’m Unhappy with My Visitation Arrangement?

Sometimes these agreements can be too vague for the visiting parent’s comfort. If you are worried your ex may abuse the flexibility of your current arrangement, you can save yourself a lot of time and hassle by asking the court to create a detailed visitation schedule. This will lock you and your ex into a specific agreement as to when, where, and for how long visitation will occur, in order to avoid wasted time and unnecessary frustration for both parties.

You can always appeal to have a court-ordered visitation arrangement altered if you find that it is unreasonable or makes it needlessly difficult for you and the other parent. However, there are a number of facts you will need to demonstrate and several important steps you will need to take to make the changes you want—and you’ll need an experience family lawyer to do it.
