If you have a dispute over child custody in your divorce, the Dayton child custody lawyer at Albert & Krochmal Attorneys at Law will provide you with experienced, respected guidance to help you resolve your custody dispute in a way that is effective and in the best interests of your child. We serve clients in Dayton and throughout the surrounding areas of Ohio.
Help With Difficult Child Custody Disputes
Usually, the best decisions about where a child will live and who will make decisions about the child's upbringing are made by the parents themselves. When we represent you in a child custody dispute, we will work with you to reach an agreement about where your child will live through negotiation and other alternative means of dispute resolution.
While we work to resolve custody disputes out of court, not every child custody matter can be resolved amicably. When necessary, we will provide you with experienced representation in a custody matter.
If you and the other parent are unable to reach an agreement regarding custody of your children, a court will make a decision based on what it believes is in the best interests of the child. It must take several factors into account to make this decision:
- The wishes of the child's parents
- The preference of the child, if the child is old enough
- The mental and physical health of everyone involved in the situation
- Other factors in state law or other evidence the court considers to be relevant

In addition to determining child custody, you must also determine how much parenting time the noncustodial parent will have with the child. Sometimes, a nonparent, such as a grandparent, can be granted parenting time.
