Here is the law that applies. Under OH law, a court may modify a decree allocating parental rights and responsibilities only if it finds, based on the facts that have arisen since the decree or that were unknown to the court at the time of the decree, that there has been a change in the circumstances of the child, the residential parent, or either of the parents subject to a shared parenting decree and that modification is necessary to serve the best interest of the child. The court must retain the residential parent designated by the decree, unless a modification is in the best interest of the child and one of the following applies: (1) the residential parent in a sole custody situation (or both parents under a shared parenting decree) agrees to change the residential parent designation, (2) the child, with the residential parent’s consent (or both parents’ consent under a shared parent ing decree), has been integrated into the family of the person seeking to become the residential parent, or (3) the advantages of a change in the child’s environment outweigh the disadvantages.
