Co-parenting issues that courts avoid

Can grandparents get parenting time during divorce?

When people consider the old adage "it takes a village to raise a child" they undoubtedly had grandparents in mind. In many cases, they are drivers, cooks, and maids in the same way that parents are.

How to plan for parenting time during spring break

With divorced and separated couples in Ohio, spring break can be a part of March Madness that neither person wants to enjoy.
