Can nonbiological parents be awarded custody/timesharing?

FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY FORT MYERS | DIVORCE ATTORNEY FORT MYERS/NAPLES

Yes, and the one situations that that can happen is if the non-biological father was married to the mother at the time that the child was conceived. If the mother had an extramarital affair and the child was conceived, and she was still married to her husband, he may not have been the biological father, but the court would consider him as the legal father of the child, and he would be able to have custody.
