Florida Child Custody Basics

In accordance with the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, Florida courts determine child custody based on the best interests of the child. Child custody refers to the care, control, and maintenance of a minor. Under Florida law, there are two types of custody arrangements.

Child custody is divided into legal custody and physical custody:

  • Legal custody refers to the responsibility of making all decisions regarding the child
  • Physical custody refers to where the child will live. Depending on what is best for the child, these two types of custody are further divided into either joint or sole custody.
  • Joint legal custody means that both parents may have a say in the child's upbringing, particularly in reference to education, healthcare, and religion.
  • Sole legal custody is awarded to one parent, they are the sole decision-makers in the child's life.
  • Joint physical custody means that the child spends time living with both parents in turn
  • Sole physical custody has the child living with one parent, often establishing a visitation schedule with the other.
