What are the custody laws in Florida?

Child custody is a legal term used to describe the legal and practical relationship between a parent and their child. In Florida, we call this timesharing.

Florida law requires a timesharing schedule to be included in the parenting plan that specifies the time, including overnights and holidays, that a minor child will spend with each parent.
