Temporary Timesharing And Child Support Modifications Due To Military Service

Co-parenting a child is challenging when the child’s parents live separately, even more so when one parent is in the military and has been activated, deployed, or temporarily assigned to military service and his/her orders materially affect his/her ability to comply with the established timesharing schedule.  Florida Statute Section 61.13002 was enacted to address such situations including, in some cases, permitting the military parent to designate a person or persons to exercise timesharing with the child on the parent’s behalf.  The attorneys of Sessums Black, PA are experienced in assisting clients who face family law issues relating to military service.
