Ohio Admin. Code 5101:1-3-04.1 - Ohio works first: shared parenting (joint custody)
When both parents apply for assistance for the child and both parents claim that the child is living with and sharing a home with them, the county agency shall first determine whether each applicant is maintaining a home for the child.
The list of parental activities contained in paragraphs (C)(2)(a) to (C)(2) (n) of this rule is not an all-inclusive list, and other factors may need to be examined in making this determination. There will be situations in which these questions will be answered positively for both parents. However, in reviewing parental activities, one parent is often identified more than the other. The parent most often identified is the parent who is considered to be sharing a home with the child, and the parent with whom the child's eligibility shall be explored.
The county agency shall document the decision made on the case and the basis for the decision in the assistance group record(s), as well as in running record comments in the statewide automated eligibility system.
