What are some common arrangements for child visitation in Florida?

In Florida, the courts will generally approve any timesharing arrangement worked out between the parties and reduced to a marital settlement agreement and parenting plan. The court would like to see in a parenting plan substantial timesharing for both parents. Florida prefers that each parent share in both the joys and the burdens of raising their children. An example of a timesharing plan would be an equal timesharing plan where each parent has 50% of the time. Parents can break it up a week on, a week off or they can do something like one parent gets every Monday and Tuesday night, the other parent gets every Wednesday and Thursday night, and they rotate the weekends. Over a two week period this gives each parent seven days of timesharing.
