Compassionate Ohio Family Law Counsel

Divorce is a disruptive process for any family, but one of the most emotional aspects is figuring out child visitation (also called companionship and parenting time). Moreover, this aspect can and may be revisited throughout a child's lifetime until he or she reaches adulthood.

Under Ohio law, there are two forms of child custody, which can affect visitation rights:

  • Sole custody: In a sole custody arrangement, one parent is designated the legal custodian and residential parent of the child. The parent without custody will have "visitation rights"/"parenting time" as determined by the parties, the court, and the Ohio visitation guidelines.
  • Shared parenting: Shared parenting is an agreement between the parties to share the custody of their minor children.

Meeting Your Child's Best Interests

Your child's best interests must be foremost in any child visitation arrangement. Generally, courts will follow the principle that children thrive most when they have access to both parents.

The law offices of Charles A. Ziegler has experience structuring custody agreements that best fit the child's needs and the parents' wishes. Whether a parent has sole custody or shares joint custody through a shared parenting agreement, we strive to make sure the visitation schedule allows for relationships to remain intact, strengthen and grow.
