Priorities when creating a parenting schedule

When divorcing couples in Ohio are putting together a parenting schedule, they should not prioritize their own desires. Instead, the plan should be designed with the child's own schedule in mind. It's also important to account for where each parent lives and how far they are from the child's school.

How a court determines the best interests of the child

Parents in Ohio who are getting a divorce and who cannot come to an agreement about child support may have to go to litigation. The court attempts to make a child custody decision that is in the best interests of the child. A judge will take a number of elements into consideration when making this decision.

Alcoholic parents can damage a child's well-being

If you know parents who are alcoholics or you believe that the other parent of your child is an alcoholic, it is likely that you will have concerns about the well-being of the children when they are under their care. Unfortunately, it is common for a person to be struggling with alcoholism, and it can easily turn a person's life upside down. It can also have the potential to change their personality. This is why the effects of alcoholism can be particularly dangerous: An otherwise soft-spoken and kind person can turn angry and violent when they become under the influence of alcohol.

Protecting parental rights of fathers after a divorce

These days, most courts in Ohio and throughout the rest of the nation recognize the importance of a father in a child's life. However, it's still fairly common for children to end up living with the mother if there's a serious custody dispute that can't be resolved amicably. That's why some steps dads looking to remain involved with their children may want to take steps to protect their rights after a divorce.

The case for 50-50 joint physical custody

Divorcing parents in Ohio are likely concerned about how the split will impact their children. In some cases, a parent will fight to obtain sole custody of the kids. Many still believe that children, especially infants and toddlers, do better when they are raised solely by their mothers.
