Will filing for bankruptcy in Florida impact my child visitation rights or my parenting rights?

If you are thinking of filing for bankruptcy then you are also thinking of what type of impact bankruptcy plays with other aspects of your life.  One question I recently received is whether or not filing for bankruptcy in Florida will have any impact on a child visitation agreement or parenting rights.  The answer to that question is NO; the filing of bankruptcy will have no impact on a debtor’s child visitation agreement at all.   The bankruptcy court doesn’t talk to or have any communication with the family courts in Florida.
