How Are Child Custody Decisions Made in Florida?

In Florida, family court judges consider a number of factors when it comes to making a child custody decision. Ultimately, the final decision will be whatever is in the “best interests” of the child – in other words, whatever will be least disruptive to the child’s life and provide them with the most stability.

Florida courts consider the following:

  • The ability of both parents to co-parent
  • The child’s health and safety
  • The emotional and educational needs of the child
  • The character of each parent

In some cases, it is possible to resolve child custody issues outside of court when both parents can amicably agree on whom the child will live with and when visitation will occur. The Pensacola child custody attorneys at The Virga Law Firm, P.A. offer mediation services to help clients avoid family court if they wish. Mediation can be an effective way to save money, save time, and protect their children from a contentious court battle. If you are interested in this option, call us today to speak with an attorney about the benefits of mediation.
