What Does “TimeSharing” Mean In Child Custody?

Timesharing in Florida is the equivalent of the term “visitation” in other states.

While much of the country continues to talk about custodial and non-custodial parents, Florida has moved away from the idea that one parent has custody and the other doesn’t; instead, one parent will typically have a majority time-share with the child or children.

The amount of each parent’s time-share can impact the child support payments due by the parent with the lower time-share.

When the child or children spend 40% or more of their time with the lower time-share parent, the support obligation will generally be reduced to reflect the nearly equal responsibilities being shouldered.

There are a number of ways to provide for your children that can reduce the cash expense of child support.
