Will domestic violence affect my child custody/time-sharing case in Florida?

View More FAQ Videos


If there is a conviction of domestic violence there is rebuttable presumption of detriment to the child which means shared parental responsibility and timesharing may not be granted. The court will consider evidence of domestic violence or child abuse as evidence even if there is no conviction or injunction for protection against domestic violence.
