THE DECISION TO DIVORCE: TIMESHARING AND PARENTING PLANS

Your relationship is over, but you have children. You have tried to stay together for the children, but the arguments continue and the unhappiness grows. Finally, you decide that you want and need peace in life. You deserve peace. What happens next?

The conversation that you need to have next is not about who is going to file the Divorce Petition (in Florida, called a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage). The conversation is not about who is going to get the house or the value of marital share of the retirement (in Florida, called Equitable Distribution). The first conversation that you need to have after making the decision to divorce focuses on how you will work together with your spouse to minimize the impact of your divorce upon your children. The conversation will not be easy. Considering the parties, it might need to occur in a public place, or at home, or even with the help of a third party. However, the conversation needs to result in a commitment in both of your parts to facilitate the parent/child relationship for the other parent. This conversation could result in a Parenting/Timesharing Plan which outlines the time that each of you will spend with the children.

Simply put, in making your decision to divorce, your first and most important priority is to minimize the impact on the children by developing a Parenting and Timesharing Plan which will allow both of you to spend time with your children.
