Child custody is often one of the most challenging divorce terms to resolve. Because child custody issues directly affect your parental rights, it makes working closely with an experienced Dayton child custody attorney from the outset an excellent idea.
Ohio addresses both legal and physical custody. Legal custody determines who will be making the major parenting decisions on behalf of your children going forward, including those decisions related to the following:
You and your children’s other parent can make each of these decisions together (with the option of granting one of you tie-breaking authority in the event of a complete stalemate), one of you can take legal custody on as a sole responsibility, or you can divide this parenting responsibility between you according to the kinds of decisions that need to be made.
Physical custody determines how you and your children’s other parent will split your time with your children. While your scheduling options are nearly limitless, the basic categories of division include one of you becoming the primary custodial parent (while the other has a visitation schedule) and both of you sharing your parenting time more evenly.
The State of Ohio bases every child custody decision on the children’s best interests, which means that if you need the court’s intervention regarding your child custody arrangements, the following factors will be taken into consideration by the judge in your case:
All told, the court believes that children’s best interests are best served when they are able to spend a considerable amount of time with both parents, and this basic tenet will guide the overall process of determining your child custody arrangements.
