Child Custody in Ohio

In Ohio, family law courts can award sole custody to one parent or joint custody to both parents. In general, courts favor joint custody, as it is believed that it is in the child’s best interests to have a continuing relationship with both parents. With joint custody, a shared parenting plan is generally required.

Courts will make a custody decision based on many factors, such as:

  • The child’s wishes if he/she is old enough to have an opinion
  • The mental and physical health conditions of the child and both parents
  • The ability of each parent to take responsibility and make decisions for the child
  • The geographical proximity of both parents’ homes
  • The relationship between the parents
  • Whether child support payments have been made
  • Whether either parent has a history of domestic violence, substance abuse, child abuse, or other criminal behavior
  • Whether a parent has denied visitation rights to the other parent
  • Whether a parent has relocated or is planning to relocate to another state
