One of the most emotional and contentious issues in any divorce is who will take care of the children and who will be responsible for decisions regarding their safety, health and welfare. Under Florida law, the legal concept of “child custody” does not exist. In Florida, parents have shared responsibility and parenting plans that determine parental conduct with their children.
At the law firm of Kallins Little Delgado our child custody lawyers appreciate how serious these issues are for our clients and we work hard to protect their rights and best interests. We will be honest with you about the divorce process and what is likely to happen in your case. We also make ourselves available to answer your questions and to give you peace of mind about your case.

Child Visitation and Custody Lawyers
Our Florida visitation attorneys have an extensive understanding of the state laws surrounding custody and visitation. There are many factors that will influence the court’s decision when it comes to issues of shared responsibility and Florida parenting plans, including:
- Income of the parties
- Employment status
- Work schedules
- Household and living conditions
- Continuity and stability
- Any evidence of drug or alcohol abuse
- Any evidence of child abuse
In every case, it is the best interests of the child that are the most important consideration. At our firm, we use more than two and a half decades of family law experience in Florida to assist parents in doing what is best for their children during the divorce process.
Visitation and time-sharing become very important in the lives of your children. Courts understand that parental involvement in your child’s life is critical. We will work with you to ensure that your rights and the best interests of your children are protected.
