Effective July 1, 2023 significant changes to timesharing laws in Florida have been made.
There is now a presumption that equal timesharing is in the best interest of all children.
However, that presumption can be overcome by proving your case by a preponderance of the evidence.
The new law states:
“Unless otherwise provided in this section or agreed to by the parties, there is a rebuttable presumption that equal time-sharing of a minor child is in the best interests of the minor child. To rebut this presumption, a party must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that equal timesharing is not in the best interests of the minor child. Except when a time-sharing schedule is agreed to by the parties and approved by the court, the court must evaluate all of the factors set forth in subsection (3) and make specific written findings of fact when creating or modifying a timesharing schedule.”
