Child Custody & Visitation

Allocating Parental Time and Responsibilities: Child Custody and Visitation in Ohio

Your child's best interests always come first. Ensuring your child's well-being after your marriage ends can be very difficult and highly emotional for parents. The thought of being separated from your child or not having a say in the decisions that impact them may feel like a nightmare. You want to protect them and make sure they know their bond with you can never be broken.

Today's families can also be more complex than in the past. Your child may have two homes, stepparents, and busy schedules that require a lot of coordination. Massucci Law Group understands that you want to minimize the negative impacts on your child, and find solutions that fully promotes your child's well-being. We are here to help you understand how the court will allocate the time and responsibilities you and your spouse or co-parent will have with your child.

In Ohio, if it is in the best interests of your child, it is more common to allocate parental rights under a shared parenting plan than to designate one parent as the sole custodian. Massucci Law Group will evaluate your family's unique situation and help you reach an agreement that will promote your child's health and well-being. If you have high-conflict custody or parenting time disagreements, we will be strong advocates for you in the courtroom.
