How does joint custody/time-sharing work in Florida?

In Florida, there are two components to custody: time sharing and parental responsibility. In almost all circumstances, the parents will equally share parental responsibility for the children. As far as time sharing goes in our area, generally there is a majority parent and a non-majority parent. The non-majority parent would receive one overnight during the week, every other weekend, and the parties would equally split the summers and the holidays giving the non-majority parent approximately 40% of the overnights.
