Can Shared Parenting Be Terminated in Ohio?

Shared parenting may be terminated by a Court upon the motion of either parent or whenever the Court determines that shared parenting is no longer in the best interest of the children. Under Ohio Revised Code 3109.04(E)(2)(c), a Court is not required to find a change in circumstances before terminating a shared plan. If a shared parenting plan is terminated, the Court will then allocate parental rights and responsibilities based on what is in the best interest of the children as if shared parenting had never occurred.
