In Florida, the courts no longer use the term “custody.” Neither party will be “awarded custody.” Instead, the courts will assign "parental responsibility" for the children, either shared or sole, and will provide for a timesharing arrangement.
The responsibility for raising a child ends upon the child's 18th birthday or upon graduating from high school - by age 19.
