Violations of the time-sharing schedule in the parenting plan, without proper cause, may be punished by contempt of court or other remedies that the court deems appropriate.
Failure to adhere to the time-sharing schedule may also lead the non offending party to seek a modification based on the offending party’s actions or inactions.
The remedy provided due to a party’s refusal to honor time-sharing rights is makeup time-sharing to the non offending party under F.S 61.13(4)(c).
Before ordering makeup time-sharing, however, the court must consider the best interests of the child.
Finding that makeup time-sharing is in the best interest of the child is, by itself, insufficient; the manner in which it is to be imposed must also be in the best interest of the child.
