Wow...I hope this is hypothetical. I am of the opinion that a social service worker from another state on her own without a court order from this state (Ohio) could not remove a child from a home in Ohio. But, the interstate child support act makes it possible for another state to seek assistance in enforcing a removal order from Ohio. We use it often to assess child support ordered in another state against Ohio residents. There would need to be a hearing if not several hearings. But if this is a genuine concern, run today for a consultation with an Ohio lawyer about ensuring your rights. This is not something you would likely be able to fight on your own successfully.
