Suwareh v. Nwankwo CA2017-12-174The trial court did not abuse its discretion in granting a modification of Father's parenting time after considering the best interest factors set forth in R.C. 3109.04(F)(1), including the parent's wishes, the children's relationships with their parents, the distance between the two parents' residences, and the children's ages and schooling needs.
