Cincinnati Child Custody Attorneys

Protecting Your Parental Rights to Custody & Visitation

When two parents separate, their greatest concern is what will happen to their children. Despite common misconception, Ohio law does not favor either the mother or the father in matters of child custody and visitation (in Ohio, this is known as “parenting time”); both parents are provided equal rights to see and spend time with their child/children.

Greene & O’Malley Attorneys at Law represents both mothers and fathers in all aspects of child custody and visitation in Cincinnati and throughout Southern Ohio. Whether you are working with the other parent of your child to create a parenting time schedule that suits your particular situation or you need strong legal representation in a child custody dispute or divorce, our firm can help.

Types of Child Custody in Ohio

Like most other states, Ohio recognizes and enforces several different types of child custody/parenting time arrangements.

These include:

  • Joint physical custody, in which the child spends time with both parents. Physical custody refers to where the child lives and carries out other activities. In a joint physical custody arrangement, the child will most likely still spend the majority of his/her time living at one parent’s house, but physical custody will be shared between the two parents. A common arrangement involves the child spending every other weekend with his father or certain school breaks with her mother.
  • Joint legal custody, in which both parents have decision-making power regarding the child’s schooling, health care, religion, and other “legal” matters.
  • Sole physical and/or legal custody, in which only one parent has control over major decisions impacting the child’s life (education, health care, etc.) and/or the child only lives with one parent. While it is not always the case, when sole custody is awarded, it typically entails both sole legal and sole physical custody. In such cases, the non-custodial parent can request visitation.

In every instance, the court will take the child’s best interests into account. If you and the other parent of your child agree on a child custody and visitation arrangement, the court may not be involved. However, when an agreement cannot be reached, the judge will always rule in favor of what he/she views as the best interests of the child, whether or not you agree with the ruling.
