About Child Custody
In every divorce and family law case, there is a question of child custody. There are two main types of child custody: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody refers to who makes decisions for your child, such as their education and health care. Physical custody refers to where the child lives.
There are two types of child custody:
- Sole custody
- Joint custody
Sole custody means one parent has custody of the child. Joint custody means both parents have custody of the child. In a joint custody arrangement, the child spends approximately equal time with both parents.
How Is Child Custody Decided in Ohio?
At Bahan Law, LLC, our experienced family law attorneys understand the importance of child custody decisions in Ohio. When determining child custody arrangements, Ohio courts prioritize the best interests of the child. Factors considered include the child's relationship with each parent, their physical and emotional well-being, parental capabilities, and the child's preference (if appropriate).
Courts may also evaluate the parents' willingness to cooperate and foster a healthy co-parenting relationship. While joint custody is favored, sole custody may be awarded in certain situations. Our compassionate legal team is dedicated to advocating for your rights and protecting your child's future. If you're facing child custody issues, contact us for expert guidance and representation tailored to your unique case.
