Ohio Child Custody Law
Similar to other states, courts usually take the position that shared parenting (joint custody) is in the best interests of minor children (however, there are certain circumstances where sole custody is the better option - e.g. neglect, abuse, addiction, etc.). For shared parenting arrangements, the courts believe that both the mother and father should usually have an equal say involving material decisions related to the child`s life, such as medical care, education and religion.
One may petition the court for sole custody if they believe that the other parent is not a suitable parent. A person is considered unfit for custody in cases involving drug or alcohol abuse, or if they have a past history of child abuse, domestic violence or violent criminal actions. Our Solon Custody Lawyers can assist you to obtain sole custody of your child.
Relocating and the Filing of a Notice of Relocation
In cases where a parent is moving, they are obligated to submit a Notice of Relocation with the Court. If you fail to submit the required notice you may pay the price. Courts understand that, at times, relocation is necessary. Still, it is important to file the appropriate relocation notice - our Solon Custody Attorneys can help you to do so.
Child Support in Ohio is determined based on the Ohio Child Support Guidelines, but deviations are permitted at times depending on certain circumstances. Our Child Custody Lawyers work diligently to uncover and account for all the assets and income of the other party to improve child support awards. We have also successfully obtained retroactive child support, birthing expenses, medical expenses and child care expenses for clients.
