Proof of Custody
- If the child’s parents are divorced:
Provide a copy of the complete court document (divorce/disillusionment decree, shared parenting agreement, or other court determination of custody) including the cover page with filed/date stamp, page stating legal custodial/residential parent, and judge’s signature page (RC 3313.672 (B)(1)).
- If legal custody is being established or changed:
The petitioner has sixty (60) days from the date of enrollment to produce a signed Journal Entry of Judgment establishing a change in custody. In order for your child to be enrolled in Anthony Wayne Schools during this waiting period, you must provide a copy of the filed/date stamped motion petitioning the court for a change in custody, and sign an affidavit stating that a custody change is in progress.

- If someone other than the parent has been granted legal guardianship or custody of the child:
You must provide a copy of the court order transferring custody.
The general rule in Ohio 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 parent and legal custodian (RC 3109.042). In such cases, the mother will be asked to sign documentation stating that she was not married to the father, and that legal custody of the child has not been assigned to either parent by the court.
