Timesharing Modifications – Domestic Violence

In a recent decision from March 2020, our Second District Court of Appeals in Meyers v Meyers, (Fla. App. 2020) dealt with a modification of timesharing action wherein a parent sought to modify an equal timesharing arrangement established by a final judgment. The reason for the modification was that the parties’ child witnessed domestic violence incidents against a father at the hands of his new spouse. The Court found that this fact constituted a substantial change in circumstances justifying modifying timesharing overnights from 50-50 to 90-10. The evidence presented in this case was unique as was the means by which the Petitioner was able to meet the burden of proof necessary for a modification. If you have concerns that your child(ren) has/have been exposed to domestic violence, please call to schedule a no cost consultation with our firm to discuss your options.
