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.

Here’s how our process works.
