What is shared parenting?

Shared Parenting is the term that Ohio uses for what is commonly known as joint custody. The court allocates the parental rights and responsibilities to both parents, where each is named the residential parent. The agreement does not mean that the children are with each parent half of the time, rather, a visitation schedule will be agreed to by the parents. Shared parenting also does not negate the need for child or spousal support.
