Custody and visitation are outdated terms

rechel & associates, p.a.


By On

Florida has radically updated its child custody laws and in the process, has virtually deleted common terminology. Gone are the terms “custody” and “visitation”. Also gone are the terms “primary residential care” and “primary residence”. We now have “parenting plans” and “timesharing” written into the statutes to describe the outmoded ideas of custody and visitation. By necessity, the idea of “majority timesharing” has arisen.
