Proof of Custody 
If the child's parents are divorced you must provide the complete journalized, signed custody papers(divorce/dissolution decree, shared parenting agreement, or juvenile court decision) proving residential parent information.
  • If custody is with someone other than the biological parents you must present a complete journalized copy of the legal custody papers transferring custody.
  • If legal custody is being established or modified, you must present a copy of the court stamped motion for change of custody. This will allow the petitioner to enroll the student and give them sixty days from the date of enrollment to obtain a journalized judgment entry establishing or modifying the custody.
  • The general rule in Ohio (RC3109.042) is that an unmarried female who gives birth to a child is the sole residential parent and legal custodian of the child until a court issues an order designating another person as the residential and legal guardian.
