When child custody is determined, decisions are made regarding sole or joint custody as well as physical and legal custody of the child. Typically, the court presumes that parents should share joint custody of a child unless circumstances exist that necessitate one parent retaining sole custody of the child. If parents share joint custody, it means that they share the physical and legal custody of the child. Physical custody refers to how much time the child spends with each parent, while legal custody refers to the decision-making capacity of each parent to determine important aspects of the child’s life, such as educational, medical, religious, and extracurricular choices. Our child custody lawyers will fight for the custody outcome that is best for you and your child.
Many Ohio courts encourage parents to mediate custody before going to trial over the issue. Mediation involves utilizing a neutral third party, known as a mediator, who works with each parent and their lawyers to create a child custody agreement that works in everyone’s best interest. The major issues are identified, and the problems are negotiated with unique solutions tailored to your family’s specific needs. At Comunale Law Office, our lawyers have the experience mediating child custody arrangements that you need, which is far different from the traditional litigation in a courtroom.
