Orlando Sole Child Custody Attorney
When determining whether to grant sole custody, courts will look at what is in the best interests of the child. Often, this results in shared parenting time between both parents. However, while sole custody is rare, it is possible in special circumstances.
At the office of Timothy W. Terry, Attorney at Law, we represent mothers and fathers in custody and visitation disputes, now referred to as a shared parenting plan under Florida law. We will work one on one with you to understand your needs, assess your legal options and provide you with the advocacy you need at every stage.
An initial consultation is available to you at no charge.

Obtaining Sole Custody in Florida
In most situations, it is in the best interests of the child to have time with both parents and for the parents to share responsibilities. There are some circumstances, however, where it may be in the best interests of the child to award sole, physical custody such as:
- Child abuse
- Domestic violence or family violence
- Child neglect
- Child endangerment
- Drug or alcohol abuse
Whether you can obtain sole custody will depend on the specific facts in your case. At our firm, we take a detail-oriented approach, designed to help you understand the law in Florida so you can make informed decisions about your future. If sole custody is not an option, we can help you develop a shared parenting plan tailored to your needs. With more than 30 years of experience handling family law matters, we have the knowledge, skill and resources to help you get results.
