What is considered Child Abandonment in Ohio?
Asked Apr 18, 2011, 07:01 AM
I have full custody of my child, and his father has left the picture voluntary about a year and a half. Would that be considered an abandonment in Ohio? I have recently filed motion to file terminate his visitations, because I don't want him doing what he did before he disappeared. My son is 3, and he never stuck with the visitation that the court has ordered, instead, he was late getting him or no show. Now, after some time has passed, he decided that he wants to see him after that he got served. Its like a game to him. I want to put my Son's best interest at best, but not use him as a bait. Make sense? I am not trying to keep him from his Father, but want this to be for the right reason. Please help. We have a hearing date on May 9th, 2011
