Ohio Child Custody

Helping You With Decisions About Children When Marriage Ends

With more than 35 years of experience in helping guide parents through the difficult process of child custody, support and visitation, we know the welfare of your child is a top priority. Unfortunately, these issues are often the most contentious and difficult in a divorce, dissolution or legal separation. When the court is trying to determine child custody or approve of a suggested parenting plan, the best interests of the child will be their top priority. This is the same approach our firm takes when handling child custody cases.


At Mesaros Law Office, we provide legal strategies which take both your rights as a parent and the best interest of your child into account. Our law office has received the Distinguished Domestic Relations Attorney Award by the Montgomery County Domestic Relations Court


Child Custody

In making a decision on child custody, the court must make its decision based on what is in the best interest of the child. The Mesaros Law Office in Centerville, Ohio will work with you to balance the needs of your child with your parental rights. We will discuss your full range of options tailored to your unique circumstances and help you determine whether sole custody arrangements or shared parenting plans is best for your situation.


Shared Parenting

Shared parenting is intended to keep both parents as active participants in the raising of their children - financial, emotional and physical responsibility are shared between the parents on an essentially equal basis. The terms of a shared parenting arrangement must be included in a detailed and specific document which will then specify the co-parenting authority of each parent.


What Shared Parenting Is Not

By definition, shared parenting depends on agreement and cooperation. Both parents must be willing to keep lines of communication open. If they cannot, shared parenting may not be their best option. It is important to know shared parenting does not guarantee:


  • Automatic equal time with the children
  • An equal split on child support payments
  • The ability to make significant decisions without conferring with the other parent
  • Elimination of child support


Custody And Visitation For Military Personnel

Child custody is often the most important aspect of a divorce or dissolution — and one that many people understandably fret over. For military families, determining parental rights and responsibilities can involve special considerations. The demands of membership in the armed forces often require greater flexibility in custody arrangements. Determining a workable arrangement, pursuing or opposing relocations and adapting to a frequently changing lifestyle can all pose lasting challenges.
