Understanding Child Custody And Parenting Time in Ohio

Facing the nuances of family law, especially when it concerns your children, can be daunting. At Ibold & O’Brien, we understand the sensitivity required in devising and managing child custody and visitation arrangements.

Serving communities in Chardon, Orwell and the greater Cleveland metro area since 1980, our dedicated team of attorneys brings over 150 combined years of experience to support you through this complex process.

Establishing Child Custody Agreements In Ohio

Whether you are going through a divorce or were never married, establishing child custody is a critical step in ensuring the well-being of your children and protecting your parental rights. A custody plan must take the following factors into consideration:

  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • Each parent’s living situation and its safety
  • The financial stability of both parents
  • The child’s emotional and physical needs

We are committed to helping you meet Ohio’s legal requirements to create a fair and sustainable custody agreement.

Modifying And Enforcing Custody And Support Orders

Circumstances change, and so may your child custody and support agreements. We are here to assist you with:

  • Petitioning for modifications to custody and support orders
  • Enforcement of existing orders to ensure compliance

Life’s unpredictability requires a responsive legal approach, and we’re ready to advocate for your family’s needs.

Determining Custody For Unmarried Parents

In Ohio, the custody process can differ based on whether the parents were married at the child’s birth. We help unmarried parents establish legal paternity. We will help you use the custody process to protect your rights and your child’s future.

Identifying Factors That Impact Custody

We take a comprehensive approach to determining custody, considering all factors that may impact a child’s safety and well-being. These include:

  • Financial stability
  • Living environment conditions
  • History of abuse, neglect or addiction

We meticulously assess every detail to advocate for an arrangement that serves the best interest of your child and your parent-child relationship.
