Tampa Parenting Plan/Timesharing Modification Attorney
While the original time sharing plan may have been created with the best intentions, there comes time when it is outdated, and needs to be changed. If the other parent is violating the existing plan, the time sharing plan needs to be modified due to your child’s school schedule, or you simply need to modify it because of your work schedule, we can help. Similarly, if you wish to keep the existing parenting plan/time sharing plan the same, and prevent the other parent from modifying it, we can help with that. Here at The Law Office of Laura A. Olson, P.A., our skilled Tampa parenting plan modification attorneys have the experience necessary to meet your goals, whatever they may be.
Reasons to Modify a Parenting Plan
- A child is in danger at one party’s home;
- A parent is relocating a far distance away;
- If the current visitation schedule is not being adhered to by one or both parties;
- One parent has a new work schedule that makes the current visitation schedule impossible to follow;
- The children have grown and their activities and schedules have changed;
- If the custodial parent dies;
Florida Statute 61.13 states that a parenting plan must describe in detail how parents will share in the responsibility of daily tasks to raise the child, have a time-sharing schedule, determine who is responsible for health care and school decisions, and describe in adequate detail what technology will be allowed for parents to communicate with the child. Even if a plan is modified, it still must include all of these details to be approved by the court.
Why Your Child May Need The Parenting Plan to be Modified
Children are busier these days than ever. According to various child psychologists, and reported on by the New York Times, “overscheduling” may not actually be a problem for children, unless the pressure they are under begins to undermine their self worth. However, as children age and their schedules become packed increasingly full of school and extracurricular activities, the parenting plan may need to be modified in order to meet the high demands of your child’s goals.
