    I believe you are referring to the Florida Supreme Court Form parenting plan. This designation is typically relevant for certain jurisdictional problems and interstate disputes and when a child is taken out of the country. Certain laws in these contexts look for a majority parent designation. You have the right to state neither parent or both parents have equal time, which accurately reflects your arrangement, if that is true. If you choose to designate one or the other of you as the majority...

    You should absolutely inform him of the appointment dates and times and an expectation that he will either take them to the appointments or allow you to pick up the children for the appointments. If you can do this by email and get his response as quickly as possible. If he refuses to do either, you can file an Emergency Motion with the court requesting the right to take the children to their appointments as scheduled, due to his refusal. You will have to move quickly as hearing time is...

    You will need to request the court's permission to take your son out of the country if your spouse will not agree. If you plan to move your residence out of the country, you will need to comply with the Florida Statute on relocation - 61.13001. Check out www.flcourts.org, family law forms for the forms for Relocation (Forms 12.950). You can still have shared parental responsibility with your Husband and he can have time sharing regardless of where you are living. Since your Husband lives out...

    If you have a court order establishing a parenting arrangement, your ex-wife has violated Florida Statutes and your prior order. An Emergency Motion for contempt and enforcement should be filed immediately. If you have designated timesharing with the children, you can also file an Emergency Motion for Child Pick Up Order to return the children for your timesharing. This is a complicated motion when the children are out of state. You should consult an attorney with experience in this issues...
