A Southwest Florida Divorce Lawyer Focused On The Best Interests Of Your Children
Most child custody cases are settled in mediation. Working with your child’s other parent to come to an agreement puts you in control of the future. Failing to find a middle ground puts an important decision in the hands of a judge who will look out for the best interests of your children. One parent will be compared to the other, a position that neither a mother nor father should want.
Florida law presumes that shared parenting is in the children’s best interests. Any deviation from that presumption must have a valid reason such as:
- Parents who live in different towns
- A marriage where one parent worked while the other stayed at home with the children
- Drug problems or a history of domestic violence or other criminal activity
At Ian F. Mann, P.A., we encourage our clients to take control of their destinies and those of their children. Mediating child custody puts you in control of making decisions in a cooperative setting. Not only do settlements shield children from their parents battling against each other, but they also help to facilitate better relationships for ex-spouses in the future.
