If you are facing a divorce involving children, child custody issues are naturally of primary importance. Further, if you have child custody orders that no longer work – or that no longer even make sense – for your family, a child custody modification may be in order. Whatever kind of child custody concern you’re dealing with, an experienced Ohio child custody attorney can help. By listening carefully to your needs and building a customized legal strategy, we can assist you in working to resolve your case in a positive way.
In Ohio, child custody is now broken down into the allocation of parental rights and responsibilities and parenting time, but the idea remains the same. First of all, each of these components of child custody can be either sole or joint. The allocation of parental rights and responsibilities correlates with legal custody, and it refers to who makes important decisions on behalf of your children post-divorce. The decisions that relate to legal custody include:
Legal custody/parental responsibilities play an important role in your child custody arrangements.
Physical custody correlates with the new term parenting time, and it refers to whom your children live with and in accordance with what visitation schedule. If you and your divorcing spouse are able to find a middle ground on this issue and are able to create a schedule that you can both live with, the court is almost certain to include it in your divorce decree. After all, every family’s needs are unique to them, and you know your best scheduling options better than the court can. There are two primary choices when it comes to physical custody, including:
An important point to make is that it is rare for one parent to be allotted no time at all with the children. Ohio courts base their decisions that affect children solely on the best interests of those children, and the courts generally believe – unless there is a compelling reason to believe otherwise – that children are better off when they continue to build relationships with both parents.
The court understands that the child custody arrangements that worked for you and your children when they were small may no longer be relevant now that your children are obtaining driver’s licenses and part-time jobs of their own (for example). As your circumstances evolve, a child custody modification may become a necessity, and a child custody attorney can also help you with that.

I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. From the first time I met with my team to our last interaction, I always felt like I wasn't a number or a case, I was a person. The whole team was professional, responsive to my calls and concerns, and fought for the outcome I deserved. They even sent me an Ele cupcake for my birthday. I recommend this firm to everyone I know and will return if I ever need services in the future!
I am giving this firm a five-star rating for two reasons. First is the professional way in which I was treated. Every person I spoke with at this firm was professional and extremely courteous. I felt as though I was being treated as a natural person and NOT just a client. In many professional settings, clients are treated as such clients. Therefore they are held at arm's length. This gives off the impression a client is just a number, and there is a coldness and sterility to the service. I was NOT treated in this manner at the Vannoy Firm.…
Anthony VanNoy is an absolutely top-notch attorney. From start to finish, my case was handled with empathy, efficiency, and utter professionalism. The outcome was better than I'd dared to hope for and I cannot recommend him or his firm highly enough.
I first want to thank the staff and the company itself I work with Brittany and Patricia and it was so smooth on my end they took care of everything. They had no problem working with me even when I live the incident happened in a different state. Very very professional in my eyes and my family’s.
Keara Dever took the initiative to advocate for me in my very difficult situation. When no one else would listen to me, she did. She was very supportive and understanding and I am very appreciative for her services. She went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. Thank you so much Mrs. Dever. And by the way, she is AWESOME!!! Carl. M
