Fort Lauderdale Child Custody

Florida uses a “time-sharing” system and not the general custody rules many other states have. Determining a child custody agreement will most likely be the most emotional part of any divorce. Having a Fort Lauderdale family law attorney that understand how difficult a divorce can be on your children is important. The Law Offices of Alan J. Braverman, P.A. will take into account not only your needs but the needs of your children as well.

Unless a parent is proven “unfit” the Broward County Family Court will try to maximize the time your child spends with each parent. The best way to solve your child custody agreement is through mediation. An agreement between the couple is the least costly way to settle child custody disputes. Also, mediation may minimize the impact on the children.

If the Broward County Family Court gets involved in the custody proceedings they will take into consideration the following factors.

  • The stability of each parent
  • Who the primary caregiver is to the child
  • Minimizing the detrimental effects on the child
  • If you have an older child, the court will give them a say in who they want to live with
