In Ohio, the parties can have either shared parenting or one parent can have sole custody. When the parties have shared parenting, parents must make decisions together with regards to the education, medical, extra-curricular, and religious needs of the children.


If one parent has sole custody, then that parent can make decisions without consulting with the other parent.
