Establishing Visitation Schedule
by Mark from Sarasota County, Florida
I have established paternity and the minor child lives with the mother. We are not married and I would like to know what forms I need to establish visitation with my son.
I already pay child support for this child.
Answer to Florida Child Visitation Question
You need to file a Supplemental Petition for Child Custody Time-sharing Schedule and Other Relief; and a Parenting Plan.
These child visitation forms are the primary forms necessary to establish a visitation order and schedule.
Those forms and other family law forms that you will need are available on the Florida Supreme Court's website, www.flcourts.org.
Besides the two forms I mentioned there are other family law forms that must also be filed with your Supplemental Petition. Read the instructions for those two primary forms carefully.
Also read the publication titled "General Information for Pro Se Litigants", also found on the Florida Supreme Court's website. It provides some valuable information about how to file your forms, and other requirements.Notice:
