Child Custody Question!

Anyone here from Ohio? If so, did you have to fight for custody of your child after you gave the husband shared custody? There is an agreement with my son's father for shared parenting. It was 50-50 but I'm doing 99% of everything. I can prove what I've been doing and when I go to court that's what they want, right? The thing is, I'm not sure if I need a laywer or not.

He also stole his social security card and mine as well to claim us on his taxes and file for welfare. Is there a way I can stop that?

99.9% of the time the courts want both parents in the picture. You will definitely have to fight to have those rights taken away and unless you can prove him an unfit parent, it's highly unlikely they will revoke his rights without him willingly signing them over.

yes, you can let the IRS know, they will have you fill out a form and as soon as his taxes get put through it will be red flagged. 

As far as welfare goes, go down to the Dept of Job and Family Services (welfare dept) and ask to speak with a Supervisor and file fraud paperwork.

As far as needing a Lawyer... with everything that he's doing, I suggest a lawyer.

He won't be able to willingly sign over rights unless she's been re-married for at least a year and her new husband will adopt. Ohio doesn't allow parents to sign over rights unless there is a danger to the child.

Well that's intriguing to know. My husbands ex has been after his rights for 12 years and she just got married last September

I suggest contacting the walefare office and letting them know the full situation first off..then go to your clerk of courts. They'll point you in the right direction to file for custody, and you'll want a lawyer

Tiffany is right, but if you have the LO that much more and handle everything, they very well may grant primary custody and give him visitations
