Answer:

In Ohio, when the spouses are living separate from each other or are divorced, parents will have equal rights, responsibilities for the care, place of residence and legal custodian of their children.

This is provided in ORC Ann. §3109.03. It reads:
“When husband and wife are living separate and apart from each other, or are divorced, and the question as to the parental rights and responsibilities for the care of their children and the place of residence and legal custodian of their children is brought before a court of competent jurisdiction, they shall stand upon an equality as to the parental rights and responsibilities for the care of their children and the place of residence and legal custodian of their children, so far as parenthood is involved.”

Therefore, both your parents will have equal rights and responsibilities with regard to your care, residence and custody.
