Left an unwed relationship of 12 years in California and moved to Ohio with my daughter. How to I get sole custody?
If you’re the mother, you already have sole custody if you were never married and there’s no court orders in place. If you’ve been here less than 6 months the father could potentially file an action in CA for parental rights, but if here for 6 months or more, Ohio would be the home state for any filing by father.
