Time-sharing refers to the number of and specific overnight schedule per year that a child will spend with each parent.  This information, which also includes schedules for holidays, summer vacations, along with provisions for travel arrangements, daycare providers, transportation costs, etc. and other topics unique to a family, are typically included in a written Parenting Plan as part of a family law proceeding. If parents are unable to agree upon the specific terms of the Parenting Plan, the court will determine these matters. The court will consider the best interests of the child by evaluating all of the factors affecting the welfare and interest of the child, as referred to in Florida Statutes Chapter 61.13. Whether or not a parent is permitted to relocate after the entry of a final judgment is another important issue to address in a Parenting Plan.
