Parental Rights and Responsibilities in Ohio
The term "custody" is no longer present in the Ohio laws. Instead, the courts today allocate the "parental rights and responsibilities" for the care of minor children affected by divorce. These rights and responsibilities are assigned in one of two ways:
- One parent is designated to be the residential parent and legal custodian of the children, or
- The court issues a shared parenting order, requiring both parents to share physical and legal custody of the children
The overriding consideration in both scenarios is what the court deems to be the best interests of the children.
