Dayton child custody lawyers know Ohio custody law

Ohio custody laws do not favor one parent over the other in custody matters. The courts are only concerned with what is best for your child. Custody can be decided in a variety of ways depending on the wishes of the parents, the child, and circumstances. Possible types of custody include:

  • Joint child custody between both parents
  • Temporary custody to one or both parents
  • Sole custody to either parent

In Ohio, if either divorcing parent requests shared parenting and provides a plan determined to be in your child’s or children’s best interest, parental responsibilities and rights may be granted to both parents. Conversely, if circumstances show that your child is better served by custody with one parent over the other, then custody is granted to that parent.
