F.S. 61.13(2)(c)2a allows the court to “grant to one party the ultimate responsibility over specific aspects of the child’s welfare or may divide those responsibilities between the parties based on the best interests of the child.”
Issues for which ultimate responsibility may be granted include, but are not limited to, religious training, school choices, or medical care and treatment.
Although the court may grant ultimate decision-making responsibility over specific aspects of the child’s welfare, such orders must be made on a case-by-case basis after an evidentiary hearing concerning the best interest of the child.
