Does a court have to decide our parenting time schedule, or can the other parent and I make the schedule ourselves?
In Florida, in any parenting plan evaluation, the parents are going to be asked to give input to that decision. If the parents can’t agree, then the court will decide, but for the most part, parents will have to agree. Ninety percent of cases are resolved short of trial, which means the parents have agreed what will occur with the child. In a collaborative case, you have the most control over what occurs with your child and in your parenting plan. That’s one of the reasons I recommend collaborative law for divorce.
