I had to leave my son in Ohio with the non custodial parent because of school. Does he have to apply for temporary custody?

In a way....yes. The parent that the child is residing with should have custody. Besides the state, the school district usually requires the parent with the child residing in the school district to have custody or the child could be removed from the school. This is probably where someone indicated that the state could assume custody of the child as children must attend school. I would suggest speaking to a local attorney to prepare an agreed entry giving the father custody or making both parents legal custodians. An attorney would be able to assist with what would work for all parties.
