Child Custody & Visitation
The court can change an order granting shared parental responsibility, including a primary residential responsibility/custody order if the judge finds that there has been a substantial change in the circumstances of the parties and the change is in the children’s best interests.
If you are asking the court to change current court-ordered custody or visitation arrangements, a Supplemental Petition to Modify Custody or Visitation and Other Relief is the appropriate form to use.
If you are looking to establish custody and visitation, and you are not married to the other parent, a Petition for Paternity is the appropriate form to use.
If you are changing an existing order and the order was entered in another state, or if the children live in another state, you should speak with an attorneyabout where to file this form. See our Free Legal Resources page for more information.
We have a section dedicated to Florida child support. Included in this section is information and links to:
