Ohio Custody Agreements Are Not Legal if They Do Not Go Through the Courts

LAWYERS CHILD CUSTODY, FAMILY LAWYER, OHIO FAMILY LAWYER, OHIO FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY, FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYOften unmarried parent callers tell us that they have shared parenting, or that they have a custody agreement, only to find out that this agreement is an understanding between the parents, but not something that is legal in any way.  Things that are commonly misunderstood are:

  • Paying child support does not give legal custody or visitation rights
  • The local visitation schedule in the county is not something that a parent automatically has with his or her child

  • A written agreement between the parents does not make it legal, that agreement is only as good as long as the parties agree, and disappears into nothing once they stop agreeing.
  • Notarizing a written agreement does not make it legally binding, it just guarantees the identity of the people who signed the document.

If you would like to know where you stand with regard to your parental rights, you can talk to the Ohio Family Law Attorney of your choice.  Our office has several Columbus Ohio Family Lawyers who are waiting to help you with your family law issues.
