When Ohio parents decide to divorce, they often encounter numerous challenges related to co-parenting agreements. Child custody issues can spark highly emotionally charged disputes if parents disagree or simply refuse to cooperate to amicably devise a fair parenting agreement. Such situations often prompt litigation, wherein a family law judge is tasked with making decision the parents in question were unable to peacefully make for themselves.
Ohio fans of reality show "Teen Mom" are eagerly awaiting the premiere of the show's second season. Many fans have also been following a child custody situation involving one of the show's stars, Jenelle Evans. Evans's ex boyfriend is suing for custody of their son and has levied some serious accusations against Evans and her current husband.
The Ohio court typically believes that children are best able to cope with divorce when provided ample time with both parents as they adapt to new lifestyles. At times, a judge overseeing a child custody case may determine that a parent is unfit or may somehow be a detriment to his or her children, thereby ordering supervised visits only or, in some situations, none at all. In situations where parents are unable to agree, litigation may be needed to resolve child custody conflicts.
"Jon & Kate Plus 8" was a popular reality TV show for years. Ohio fans of the show will recall the parents of twins and sixtuplets, Jon and Kate Gosselin who shared the daily happenings of their busy, often chaotic lifestyle with the world. Although the Gosselins divorced in 2009, they are reportedly headed back to court because Jon is asking the court to award him sole child custody of one of their sons.
If you've recently filed divorce papers in an Ohio court, you are likely spending a lot of time thinking about the future. As a parent, you want to make sure that your divorce settlement includes a fair and agreeable child custody plan. Even spouses who were fairly like-minded in marriage often learn how different they are when it comes to deciding factors regarding where children will live, who will make decisions about their medical, academic and religious life, as well as where children will spend their holidays and summer vacations.
