Child Custody Lawyer Near Me

Child Custody Lawyer Near Me

Kryszak & Associates understands that child custody and visitation is at the top of every divorcee’s list of most contentious issues. State courts all across the country—and this includes Ohio—operate under the assumption that it is in each child’s best interests to have two actively engaged parents in their lives. This means that, unless there is cause to do so, both parents will have access to the children. The question left to be resolved then, is how do the parents set up a schedule that meets everyone’s needs?

Another question that needs to be resolved is how child support will work. The Northeast Ohio child custody attorneys at Kryszak & Associates have represented spouses on both sides of the issue. We fight passionately to ensure that both you and your children’s best interests are considered.

Under Ohio law, when custody issues cannot be agreed upon by the parents in mediation, the court must intervene to make a determination as to what is in the best interests of the child. The court assumes that, in the majority of cases, that will be to have both parents in the child’s life. In some cases, the court may see fit to deny one parent access to the child.

When the courts make a determination as to what the best interests of the child are, they consider a number of factors. These include:

  • Can the parent provide for the emotional, physical, and economic support of the child?
  • Is one parent planning on moving outside their current school district?
  • How does the child interact with both parents and what is their relationship like?
  • If the child is old enough to have a preference, what is their preference?
  • Which parent is more likely to honor the custody arrangement?
  • Does either parent have a criminal history?
  • Are their allegations of drug abuse or alcoholism?

These factors and more will be considered by the court. A child custody attorney can help defend your interests or prevent an abusive parent from having access to their children.

In the majority of situations, courts will award parents joint custody when pressed to make a decision. For parents who want to keep the decision-making in-house, the option is available to arrange custody in mediation. In cases in which one parent prevents the other from having access to the children, both parents are likely in for a lengthy legal battle.
