There are numerous reasons an Ohio parent may seek sole child custody over the other parent. There may be cases of physical or emotional abuse, lifestyle choices of one parent that may cause harm to the child or even revenge. Kathryn Dennis, cast member of Bravo's "Southern Charm," is seeking sole child custody of the two children she has with ex-boyfriend Thomas Ravenel.
Ohio child custody battles usually involve parents who are no longer together. Less common, although still numerous, are situations where the state takes custody of a child for one reason or another. One couple is fighting for child custody after they say they were just trying to help their son.
Some Ohio parents who have gone through a custody battle know how emotionally, financially and even physically draining it can be. However, all the frustration is worth the gift that can be received at the final ruling. One man is fighting a child custody battle for a child that, as it turns out, is not even his.
Finalized child custody arrangements often take a lot of back-and-forth negotiations as well as compromises by both parties, as many Ohio parents know. Even when the relationship between the parents has become filled with contention, putting the needs of the child first will benefit all involved. Stevie J, best known for starring in Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, and Puerto Rican rapper Joseline Hernandez have seemed to settle on an acceptable child custody and support agreement.
Settling on a child custody agreement may prove to be difficult among some Ohio parents. There are many factors to consider, but in every case the best situation for the child should be the motivating aspect of any arrangement. Bryn Forbes, NBA player for the Spurs and his ex-girlfriend, Raelynn Taylor, have agreed on a child custody plan for their two boys.
When Ohio parents are going through a divorce, they have to make a number of decisions. Not only do they have to decide on how to fairly divide assets held between them, they also have to determine child custody and support conditions. An ongoing child custody battle is finally over thanks to the verdict of a jury.
Child custody battles in Ohio are not always between the parents. Sometimes the state may be a litigant and sometimes an organization or religious entity may be part of the official action. The fight has the potential to become a battle of wills instead of trying to do what is best for the child. A Native American tribe in one state is facing the latest in years of numerous conflicts with state authorities in a child custody struggle with the parents of a newborn.
There are many grandparents in Ohio who have petitioned the court to be considered as guardians over their grandchildren in child custody cases. Some may have found out there can be numerous obstacles in their quest to gain child custody. One woman in another state has been told by a citizen review panel she is too old to be given custody of her great-granddaughter.
All manner of Ohio civil and criminal cases are taken to court and the opposing parties are to abide by the final decision of the trial court. However, should one or both parties disagree with the judge's decision, an appeal can be made to a higher court. In one particular child custody battle between two parents in another state, that has happened twice. The original judge in the case has twice ruled that the parents should share child custody, but the father and the appellate court disagree.
When two Ohio parents separate, they have decisions to make as to the custody of their children. They may decide to share custody, or if they cannot come to a conclusion on their own, a judge may decide the child custody issues for them. A state appellate court upheld an earlier child custody determination based on the mother's medical condition.
