Wolf, in Hamilton, Ohio, our lawyers and staff have more than 30 years of family law experience. We know how important your relationship is with your children and will work hard to protect you throughout the entire process.

Following the Best Interest of the Children

In every family law case that involves children, the standard that the court uses to determine child custody issues is: "what is in the best interest of the child?"

More specifically, there are a number of factors used to determine what is best for the child in custody cases, including the age of the children, the physical and mental health of parents and children, the relationships the child has with the parents and the ability of the parents to provide for the children. Depending on the age of the children, their wishes may also be considered.

Our lawyers will help you understand your child custody and shared parenting options and how they may impact other areas of your divorce, including child support. We can help you formulate parenting plans that meet your needs, as well as the needs of your children, and advise you on your rights under the law in the state of Ohio.
