What is Parental Responsibility?

Parental responsibility is who makes the major decisions for children, such as their health and education. There are two types of parental responsibility in Florida. There are shared parental responsibility and sole parental responsibility. You may also hear shared parental responsibility with ultimate decision-making authority as another option. Florida statutes recently changed on this issue, so make sure your attorney is up to date on the latest statute and can advise you accordingly. Based on the issues in your case, it will dictate what types of parental responsibility is in the best interest of your children. If you have more questions, I suggest consulting with an experienced family law attorney.
