F.Y.I. -Ohio

?how can we find the stats for Ohio for child custody awards in divorce?

I was able to locate a report from the US Census Bureau that provides some
nationwide stats on custody and support.  I've put a copy on my
non-custodial parent resources page.


The report shows that fathers receive custody less than 16% of the time
nationwide.  That number has been pretty constant since 1993.  So much for
gaining any ground in the last decade.

If anyone finds a link or file that they would like added to the page, let
me know.  Knowledge is power.

I thought that it would be easy to find the information you wanted on the
Internet but not luck yet.  I did find on article that was interesting


It gives stats on who gets custody based on what the parents want (based on data collected in Arizona.)  What I found most interesting is that men
request joint custody 74% of the time and sole custody only 15% of the time.

Mothers, on the other hand, want sole custody 70% of the time.  When the
father wanted joint custody and the mother wanted sole custody, mom won 77% of the time.

This data is over a decade old.  It's pretty sad that the stats seem to be
pretty much the same today.
