Historically in Florida the courts were not inclined to agree to or allow equal or 50% timeshare with the children of divorcing parents.  With the implementation of the “parenting plan” as set out in Florida law, a new appellate case has just been decided that there is now no longer a presumption against equal timesharing.  That means that if parents of children involved in divorce proceedings desire to have equal timesharing privileges and responsibilities there is no legal impediment to accomplishing such a shared parenting schedule.
