Understanding Child Custody Decisions in Franklin County Courts

In my years of legal service, I have helped parents, grandparents, aunts, and foster parents create child custody, visitation, and parenting plans. My goal is to protect your right to spend time with your child, maintaining the vital connection between you and your children. If you cannot agree with your partner about the custody of your minor children, the court will have to make the necessary decisions.

Key Factors in Custody Determination:

  • The wishes of the child (if old enough)
  • The child's relationship with each parent
  • The child's home, school, and community
  • The physical and mental health of all individuals involved
  • The parent more likely to honor the other parent's visitation rights
  • The criminal record of both parents
  • The employment situation of each parent (or relative)

Guardian ad Litem: Advocating for Your Child's Best Interests in Ohio

Ohio law authorizes the judge to appoint a guardian ad litem or GAL in any child custody case. The GAL is generally a child custody lawyer looking for the child's best interest. Understanding the function of the GAL helps parents know more about the court process for child custody in Ohio.

Defend Your Parental Rights and Secure Quality Time With Your Child

I help you negotiate and draft initial child custody and parenting time plans. Then, you can be confident knowing that I will assist you if you decide to move down the road or need to make other child custody or visitation modifications.

In some cases, a post-decree modification may be needed, such as if one parent experiences a significant change in income. Other situations may involve a parent moving out of state, needing to adjust visitation arrangements due to job hours, or seeking to gain more time with a child. If you need to reach a new agreement over your child custody or visitation matters, I am here to help. Let me guide you through this complex process!
