Is marital status important in seeking child custody/timesharing and visitation in Florida?
CHILD CUSTODY ATTORNEY FORT MYERS | FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY FORT MYERS
No, it’s not. It’s not one of the factors listed in chapter 61.13, but chapter 61.13 does have a catch off phrase where the court can do anything that they see is in the best interest of the child. Typically if you’re now married, essentially mean you’re probably in a more stable environment where you probably have a higher paying income and you’re just more stable all together, but it is not a major factor that the court looks at.
