Clearwater Child Custody Attorney
Resolve Custody Issues as Peacefully as Possible
In most family law cases that involve children, child custody and time sharing are among the most important and the most contentious issues that parties have to resolve. Decisions that are made about parental responsibility and other custody matters are based on the best interests of children but are also supposed to protect the parent-child relationship.
With nearly 20 years of experience, Clearwater child custody attorney Gale Moore can explain your rights and guide you through the legal process with concern and compassion. At the Law Offices of Gale H. Moore, P.A., we provide personalized family law representation in Largo, Clearwater and throughout Pinellas County, Florida. When you visit us, we will sit down with you, listen to your needs and goals, and help you understand how custody decisions are made.
Shared Parenting and Time Sharing in Florida
In Florida, courts prefer that both parents continue to have meaningful relationships with their children even after divorce or the breakup of their relationship. A co-parenting arrangement where both parents can share time and responsibility for their children is encouraged. Thus, courts generally enact parenting plans that allow for time sharing, which means the non-custodial parent gets substantial visitation.
Take Charge of Your Own Situation
Of course, most parents and children are happier when time-sharing and parental responsibility agreements are worked out on their own terms. A family court judge can never be as familiar with your family and its needs as you are. The judge’s decisions may not fit your family’s unique needs.
At our Largo family law firm, we know that these issues are highly emotional and that people can be pushed into bitter court battles for bad reasons. We try to be a calming influence, explaining your rights and encouraging you to work out your differences through settlement, mediation or other forms of dispute resolution that will help you avoid the courtroom. However, if a trial does become necessary to resolve the issues favorably, we are fully prepared to litigate.
