Florida's rules on who gets time with a child are very different compared to other states. Several years ago, Florida abolished the legal definition of child custody and replaced it with time-sharing in 2010. Time-sharing means that the court believes both parents must spend time with the child. Parents must co-operate in raising children even after a divorce, and merely paying child support is not enough. Time-sharing is separate from child support, though time-sharing does factor into the amount of child support the court awards.
