Parents looking for child custody win for foster children

While Ohio fostering and adoption issues have made the news for years, they seem to be more prevalent topics these days. Some courts and states have laws stating every effort should be made to keep the child with biological family unless there is proof of previous harm. Some courts rule child custody should go to the family who can give the most stable home. One foster mother and her husband are fighting for child custody involving two sisters who had been with the couple for 16 months before the state took them away.

There are a few reasons an Ohio parent can lose custody of a child, with child abuse being the number one. Substance abuse is also among the top reasons child custody is revoked.

Child custody case pits mother against son

Bringing a child into the world means taking responsibility for someone who cannot care for him or herself, and it is usually a lifelong commitment. Unfortunately, the focus for some parents remains on themselves, leaving others to do what they choose to forgo, which is to raise the child to be a productive member of society. More and more grandparents are now seeking child custody for grandchildren the parents cannot or will not raise themselves. Ohio parents may be interested in the case of a grandmother in her fearless child custody fight for her granddaughter.

Parents win child custody case with medical diagnosis

Many custody cases that make the news these days deal with celebrities from the sports or entertainment world fighting with an ex or of grandparents who are fighting to keep their grandchildren as a result of drug abuse on the part of their children. However, sometimes a child services agency gets involved and parents end up fighting for child custody of their own child. Ohio parents might be interested in the case of two parents fighting for child custody after a medical diagnosis gave the Department of Social Services cause to remove their child from his home.

Ohio fathers who are pursuing custody of their children may be interested to hear that many states are no longer automatically giving the mother guardianship after a divorce or separation.

One father in another state appealed after the department of child services there challenged a child custody placement in his favor.

Father files lawsuit in child custody case

When divorced Ohio parents receive an order from the court, disclosing details of a custody agreement, both parties are expected to comply with the order. However, there are times when one parent chooses to stray from some of the conditions of the formal child custody directive, leaving the other parent in a state of frustration and anger. One father has filed a lawsuit against a police department, claiming it is helping the mother violate a court-ordered child custody agreement.

Past of father fighting for child custody may be obstacle

There are a number of adults in Ohio fighting to be named the custodial parent of their child. Fighting for child custody is often not an easy undertaking, especially if the other parent is exceptionally opposed to the notion. Sometimes, it is not the other parent but a state agency or another relative of the child who has a differing opinion on permanent placement. One father is not only fighting for child custody of his newborn daughter but he is also fighting a past that may threaten his case.
