How Fathers are Treated in the Ohio Court System
Ohio courts are forbidden from favoring one parent over another simply
based on gender. Both parents come before court on equal footing for a
custody battle. Judges can grant full custody of children to the father
if they deem it to be in the child's best interests.
An unwed woman who bears a child is automatically given the status of sole
residential parent and legal custodian unless or until a court issues
an order designating the other parent. This means the father has no legal
rights to visitation until the court recognizes the unmarried father as
A mother who decides to leave you as the father is not entitled to take
the children with her and keep them from you. While their behavior may
step outside of the law, your best bet is to respond with the proper legal
action. You should look to a family court to intervene instead of trying
to resolve it on your own. You will need to request a court to provide
you with access to your children. That is why you need a seasoned legal
advocate on your side.
