Appeals Court Upholds Ban On Father Discussing Religion During Child Visitation

In Koch v. Koch, (FL App., Sept. 28, 2016), a Florida state appellate court upheld a trial court's order in a parenting plan that was part of a divorce proceeding prohibiting the father from discussing any religious matters during his two hours per week visitation time with his 3 children.  The trial court had concluded that religiously-based admonishments, threats of damnation, and demonization of the children’s mother was abusive to the children, causing them anxiety and severe emotional distress.
