Children are dependent upon the adults in their lives to teach them living skills and to help them gain confidence. When adults are engaged in the emotionally difficult process of separation and divorce, it can be easy to forget about the needs of the children.
Ohio no longer uses the term "custody." Instead, Ohio courts "allocate the parental rights and responsibilities for the care of the minor children of the marriage." When making the allocation of the parental rights and responsibilities for the care of the children, the court must take into account that which would be in the best interest of the children.
In any divorce, the Ohio court considers the best interests of the children and it provides for their financial, educational, and emotional needs and may hand down temporary orders to provide for the children while the case is pending.
