Allocating Parental Time and Responsibilities: Child Custody and Visitation in Ohio

In determining custody in Ohio, both parents come to the process on equal footing. It is more common to allocate parental rights under a shared parenting plan, if it is in the best interests of the child. Our Cleveland child custody attorneys step into this process by evaluating your family's situation and assisting in the legal process of drafting an age appropriate parenting plan that serves the best interests of your children. We are here to answer the questions you may have, such as:

  • How will we divide holidays?
  • Who determines where the kids go to school?
  • Do I get to have as much say in the decision making process if I am not the primary custodian?
  • How do we agree on a shared plan?
  • What if a dispute is involved?

If there is a dispute involved, mediation may be an option paving the way for you and your spouse to reach an agreement. If litigation is necessary to resolve parenting issues we are prepared to vigorously advocate for you and your children's best interests in the courtroom. We have represented hundreds of children in Guardian ad Litem cases, which are cases where the court appoints a lawyer to represent the child's (children's) best interest. Having handled many of these cases, we more fully understand how to evaluate the entire scope of factors and have cultivated relationship with other professionals, such as parenting coaches and mental health professionals, which we can call upon if necessary.
