Protecting And Preserving Your Relationship With Your Child

Whether you need to establish a new child custody plan (known as time-sharing in Florida) or you need to modify an existing plan, it is important to work with lawyers who have experience and who care about protecting your rights and the best interests of your children.

At Rachel Rall, Attorney at Law, P.A., in Jacksonville, that is what you will find. Our attorneys have both been through their own child custody proceedings. They know how emotional it can be, and they will be by your side to protect you throughout the process.

How Are Time-Sharing Plans Determined?

In Florida, time-sharing plans are based on the best interests of the child or children involved. Several factors are taken into account, including the physical and mental health of the parents and each parent's ability and willingness to adhere to a time-sharing schedule.

As with any other legal matter, no two time-sharing cases are the same. Our lawyers will take the time to understand what matters most to you as we help you navigate the process of reaching an agreement.

If you are a father, you may not have parental rights until you are established to be the legal father of your child, even if the child is your biological child. We can help you establish paternity and secure your rights.

How Time-Sharing Affects Child Support

Child support payments are often directly related to your time-sharing schedule. In many cases, the more time you have with your child, the less you are required to pay in child support. However, child support and time-sharing are both determined based on the needs and best interests of the children involved. At Rachel Rall, Attorney at Law, P.A., we will help you understand your options, whether you expect to pay or receive child support.

Modifying Existing Orders

When life changes in a big way, your time-sharing or support order may have to change with it. Under certain circumstances, it may be possible to seek a modification. Our attorneys can help you determine if your change in circumstances warrants a modification and guide you through the process.
