CINCINNATI GRANDPARENTS RIGHTS LAWYERS

CONTACT US: 513-752-0001. HERE TO LISTEN. HERE TO HELP.

When family relations become strained, relatives outside of the immediate family are sometimes left out and unable to see loved ones as they once did.  In Ohio a grandparent, blood relative, or other person has a right to reasonable companionship and visitation.  

In order for companionship and visitation rights to be granted, the court must determine that the grandparent, relative or other person has an interest in the welfare of the child and that it would be in the child's best interest for companionship or visitation time to occur. 

WE ARE HERE TO BRING YOUR FAMILY BACK TOGETHER

When determining companionship or visitation rights, the court must also consider the following factors:

  • The prior interaction and interrelationships of the child with the child's parents, siblings, and other blood relatives, and with the person requesting the companionship or visitation if that person is not a parent, sibling, or relative of the child;

  • The geographical location of the residence of each parent and the distance between those residences;

  • The child's and parents' availabilities, taking into consideration employment, school, holiday and vacation schedules;

  • The age of the child;

  • The child's adjustment to home, school, and community life;

  • The wishes of the child if the child is mature enough to express them;

  • The health and safety of the child;

  • The amount of time that will be available for the child to spend with siblings;

  • The mental and physical health of all parties;

  • Each parent's willingness to accommodate the companionship or visitation time relative to their own schedules;

  • Any other relevant factor in the best interest of the child.
