ALLOCATION OF PARENTAL RIGHTS IN OHIO
COLUMBUS CHILD CUSTODY LAWYERS CAN HELP MAKE DECISIONS DURING DIVORCE
The most important matters that must be attended to during the divorce process involve children and their relationships to each parent moving forward. While it is an unfortunate fact that children are so heavily impacted by a divorce, taking the proper steps can ensure that their best interests are protected and that the best possible outcome for them is achieved. The State of Ohio favors parenting plans that allow for joint custody and the child having frequent contact with both parents.
PROTECTING YOUR CHILD'S BEST INTERESTS
At Weis Law Group, our Columbus attorneys believe that the best parenting plans are often those that are arrived at with the input of both parents. If time with your child is at stake, we are able to help you and your spouse negotiate a plan that is as agreeable as possible for both parties, while putting the best interests of the child at the forefront. However, if you are involved in a custody dispute and believe that sole custody may be the best option, we are well-qualified to aggressively pursue your case in court.
Some of the factors that a family law court will take into account when determining child custody include:
- The suitability of the home environment
- Any evidence of abuse, neglect, or drug/alcohol abuse in the home
- The mental and physical health of each parent
- The reasonable preferences of the child
