If you and your husband cannot agree on a time-sharing schedule, you will have a custody trial before the Judge. The Judge will establish a time-sharing schedule based on the best interests of the children. There are a number of statutory factors that the court will consider when making a determination of what is in the best interests of the children, and you should become familiar with those now. Review Florida Statute 61.13 for a list of the things the court will consider. The girls are too young to be giving depositions in a custody case, and instead they should be shielded from this litigation as much as possible. I advise you speak with a family attorney to represent you if at all possible.
Gwen gave you excellent advice the children never should have been subjected to a deposition. You need to have a local attorney review this case asap.
