Custody battles can be a stressful and overwhelming experience for parents and guardians in Florida. As such, it is important to be aware of the legal landscape and the available resources that can help make the process easier. The Law Office of Yeazell and Sweet is here to provide legal advice and assistance to parents and guardians who are navigating the complex process of custody battles in Florida.
Understand the Different Types of Custody in Florida
The two main types of custody in Florida are legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody grants the right to make decisions regarding the child's upbringing, such as education, medical care, and religious upbringing. Physical custody grants the right to have physical possession of the child. In most cases, both legal and physical custody are shared between the parents, but in some situations, one parent may be granted sole custody.
Gather the Necessary Documentation
When filing for custody, it is important to have all the necessary documentation ready. This includes birth certificates, medical records, school records, and any other documents that may be relevant. It is also important to have a detailed plan for the child's care and any other arrangements that need to be made. The Law Office of Yeazell and Sweet can provide legal advice and assistance with gathering the necessary documents and creating a plan for the child's care.
Prepare for Court
Once a custody case has been filed, it is important to be prepared for court. This includes gathering witnesses, preparing documents, and understanding the legal landscape. It is also important to be aware of the different types of evidence that can be used in court, such as medical records, school records, and other relevant documents. We can help with preparing for court and understanding the different types of evidence that can be used.
Understand the Outcome of a Custody Battle
The outcome of a custody battle is determined by a judge, who will consider the best interests of the child. The judge may order a joint custody arrangement, a sole custody arrangement, or a combination of the two. The judge may also order visitation rights, child support payments, and other arrangements.
