Types of Child Custody

Ohio law separates custody issues and decisions into different types, including physical and legal custody. Physical custody recognizes where the children will live and who will have responsibility for the child. Legal custody is the right to make certain decisions for the child, such as educational, medical, and religious upbringing. Custody may be awarded jointly, with both parents sharing the rights and responsibilities of parenthood, or sole custody, with one parent retaining these rights and responsibilities and the other being awarded visitation.

How Courts Make Custody Decisions

When divorcing parents are unable to come to an agreement through negotiations, mediation, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, the court will make the final decisions regarding custody. Courts make decisions based on the best interests of the child. Judges consider factors such as each parent’s mental and physical health, criminal records, the child’s current school situation, observations of the relationships between the child and each parent, and the preference of the child, if he or she is old enough and mature enough.

  • Sole and joint physical custody
