Child Custody

In the state of Ohio, decisions in regards to custody are made following the child's best interests.

There are two types of custody - legal and physical. Legal custody refers to the decision-making power of the parent, and physical custody has to do with where the child lives.

Ohio courts allow both sole or joint physical and legal custody and encourage spouses to resolve custody issues by creating a Parenting Plan, which is considered and approved by the court.

Shared parenting is presumed to meet the child's best interests unless proven otherwise. To award joint custody, the court takes into account the parents' willingness to cooperate and encourage the child contact with the other parent, as well as each parent's location (residency) and work schedule.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Ohio-based company. So that's why I used OnlineOhioDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found onlineohiodivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
