Is there bias in custody cases?

As you head to an Ohio court for your divorce case, you may be worried about how custody will be handled. This is often a very emotional part of the proceedings for most people. There are a lot of things that are said about custody hearings. One is that the courts always side with the mother, granting her custody and slamming the father with huge child support payments. However, this bias is not really seen anymore. Instead, the courts have a new agenda when determining child custody cases.
