Certified Family Law Specialist For Custody Issues

Child custody and child support are often the most important issues to be resolved in divorce. Some spouses are willing to give up everything in the property settlement, as long as they remain an important part of their child's life.

Rest assured, Ohio family law courts expect both parents to retain an active role in raising their children. It may help to remember that child custody does not mean child ownership. Withholding the noncustodial parent's visitation rights as a means of enforcing child support is not legal. Although some spouses don't always like to hear this, if you are the parent of the child, you will have the right to maintain an important part of your child's life.
