Ohio child custody and visitation rulings vary

There is always room for improvement when it comes to family law litigation. This is especially true when it pertains to child custody.

A recent article appearing in an Ohio newspaper highlights these concerns. This article speaks about how families receive different treatment when it comes to child custody issues depending on their location.

Should I get legal custody of my grandchild?

As a grandparent, it can be heartbreaking to watch your grandchild be raised in a high-risk environment. It is likely that you have some insight into the behaviors that the child's parents engage in, and this might concern you. If you believe that your grandchild's parents are suffering from addiction, or are neglecting or abusing your grandchild, you should make sure that you take action to protect them.

It is estimated that one in 10 children live with a grandparent in the United States. This arrangement may be in place for many reasons, but the common denominator is that living with a grandparent is in the child's best interests. You do not need to go through the often-lengthy process of adoption to successfully care for your grandchild. It can be possible to informally care for your grandchild, but gaining legal custody is often a wise decision.
