There are many issues that need quick resolution when a married couple separates. From questions about shared bank accounts and credit cards to housing and income concerns, a freshly divorcing couple will have to address it all. One particularly important issue is the question of child custody, if the couple has children together. Individuals in Florida may be wondering how to handle child custody concerns in the interim, before a legal agreement is created, and also when negotiating a permanent agreement.
Immediately in the aftermath of the separation, the custody of any children is a kind of no man's land. Each parent has an equal claim to the movement and care of the children, but it is likely to be in the parent's benefit to make a temporary arrangement to keep both parents on the same page. A temporary treaty will allow both individuals to form expectations of where the kids will be and who will be responsible.
