NOTICE:  

TEMPORARY JUDGMENT ENTRY TO COVID-19

Spring break under Miami County Juvenile Court Model Parenting Time Schedule is defined using the dates established by the School District your child is attending at the beginning of the school year.  Spring break does not include "extended Spring break" dates as Ordered by Governor DeWine.  Please be aware that your individual Shared Parenting Plan or Court Order may have modified the language in the Miami County Juvenile Court Model Parenting Time Schedule and in those cases the Court Order/Shared Parenting Plan must be followed.  In these new and uncertain times the court always encourages parents to work together and help each other and their children stay safe and healthy.  Parents are always free and encouraged to reach an agreement with each other to address the needs of your child.


This section is designed to provide general, legal, and procedural information to the public and the attorneys who practice before the court. The intent is to make the environment of the court more accessible to the citizens we serve.
