A Court Must Generally Leave Open An Avenue For A Parent To Resume Parenting And Time-Sharing With The Child(ren) Even If It Awards Sole Parental Responsibility And Denies Time-Sharing

In Niekamp v. Niekamp, the Second District Court of Appeals ruled that the trial court erred in determining that it was in children’s best interests to deny a father  contact with children  without setting forth a schedule or benchmarks for reestablishing father’s parenting of the children in the future.  Consistent with its prior rulings and the general concepts of Florida Family Law the Court held that while it is sometimes appropriate to restrict a parents contact and access with their child(ren) in a divorce case the restricted parent should be given a key or avenue to reconnect with the child in the future setting forth the specific steps that the parent must take so that a parent and any successor judge knows what is expected of the parent.
