Childs Rights to Parents

Posted by Daniel Getty | Nov 02, 2023 | 0 Comments

All children need both parents involved completely in their lives.  Especially those with two parents who are adequate loving parents that want to be part of those children's lives.  

The current state of affairs in Ohio still seems to strongly favor one parent, especially in unmarried parental situations.  We need a change not only in the basic principles of the custody laws in Ohio, but also with those deciding those laws.  Not much thought is really given to these cases by the triers of fact.  What has been done in the past is still the current custom.  Every other weekend for one parent. (the child being robbed of 26 days for this parent)  One parent in primary control with the other paying support.  Is this really current with our modern world?  Seems more like the 1920s to me.  The laws say they are fair, it's not true though.   This is a typical "standard" order in most courts.  

Anyway, this blog is meant to open the discussion and my opinions on Ohio Laws and the current state of parenting outcomes in Ohio when parents either divorce or are never married.  I hope to analyze some laws, some proposed laws, and current opinions and basis for and against a substantial change in those laws.
