When a Parent moves and does not give notice to the noncustodial parent , The courts in the state of Ohio will not hear your case without an address to serve the other party. Even if you have a court order that clearly states a visitation schedule, if you do not know where your child has moved to with the custodial parent the courts will not hear your case. the Clerk of courts will not even accept your filing. Your documents become worthless and unenforceable until the custodial parent resurfaces and sometimes many years later. This law needs to change. Years are lost and lives destroyed due to this huge gap in the legal system that has been grossly exploited by countless Custodial Parents looking to interfere with the custody and visitation of the non custodial Parent.

Letter to
Ohio State Senate
Ohio Governor
Ammend ORC 2919.23 Please make it a criminal act for a custodial parent to move without giving notice to a non residential Parent.
