Child Custody and Timesharing

St. Petersburg Child Custody Attorneys

Handling child custody and timesharing in Clearwater and Pinellas County, Florida

St. Petersburg family law firm Kidder & Bennett assertively advocates for the well-being of children. Throughout our more than 25 years of experience, our lawyers have witnessed the positive results of successful timesharing plans and have made children a priority in our divorce practice.

To develop an effective plan, our team consults with you about your parenting goals and your children’s needs. We thoroughly advise you of your options and the potential outcomes of the various legal approaches to finalizing a parenting plan. We then formulate a comprehensive divorce strategy that incorporates the best child custody and visitation arrangements for your children.

Best interests of the child

The court determines who gains primary custody — or if a joint custody arrangement is appropriate — based on the children’s best interests. Important considerations include:

  • Your and your spouse’s fitness as parents
  • Anticipated division of parental responsibilities
  • History of behavior that demonstrates your commitment to your children’s upbringing
  • Stability of your home environment
  • Continuity in the children’s home, school and community

Judges in St. Petersburg give equal weight to fathers’ and mothers’ rights, and they focus on creating the most beneficial situation for the children. In some cases, grandparents’ rights are considered by the courts.

Parental involvement

Courts encourage involvement with both parents except when the contact is detrimental to the children. The court may restrict the rights of one parent if it finds:

  • A history of domestic violence
  • Abuse of drugs or alcohol
  • Mental illness
  • An unsafe or unhealthy home environment

We can help you protect your family if the other parent poses a threat to your children. We may seek restricted or supervised visitation by the other parent in some circumstances. When appropriate, we initiate dependency proceedings or file for a domestic violence injunction.
