We were married in June of 1998 in Lorain, Ohio and she left me in October of 2005. At the time we agreed to take what was ours and be done with each other. We had a minor child that we shared custody of with no issues. Here, 16 years later, we are still married. We talked about it and attempted to... View More
You can proceed with a non-contested divorce wherein as long as your wife is served, most courts will allow you to finalize the divorce without your wife ever coming to court. Or, if your wife wishes to cooperate, you can file for a dissolution which would require both of you to come to court one...View More
This question depends on the nature of the transfer. If she truly gifted it to you, there is an argument it is yours. If she merely intended for you to use it, then it may still be hers. But, as the owner of the plan she likely has an undisputed ability to suspend phones she pays for.
If you are an unmarried father in the State of Ohio who has not been to court yet to establish custody or visitation rights, then right now you have 0 rights and the mother can move wherever she wants with the child. You need to speak with a lawyer about your options.
On Christmas and she begs my sister N law to let her talk to us she cry's every night and she is very emotional deserved child all she wants to do is come home we lost custody due to not having a job and all the other accusations against us was false and we'll I guess my question is do I...

What rights you have will have been determined in the legal process in which you lost custody. If you were granted visitation, then you have a right to that visitation. If you were not granted visitation, then you will have to file for visitation.
My wife an I have had problems and we are about to buy a home. I dont want to have 5+ years of equity go to waste and lose the home to her IF we end things. Can I have someone draw up an agreement to have her sign so that if we divorce, we can split the home down the middle or one of us buys the... View More
Postnuptial agreements (meaning after you are already married) are not enforceable in Ohio. However, your goals (either split the home equity or one of you buy the other out) are both very likely scenarios if a divorce occurred regardless.
If your grandfather completed a full transfer (i.e. the property is now deeded to you without any contingencies) then it is unlikely he can just :take it back". I suggest speaking with a lawyer to have them review the documents involved with the "signing over".
If your ex missed his visits he is guaranteed by a court order due to some withholding or interference by you, then you can be found in contempt. But, it is possible the court will consider the matter resolved if he is provided make up visits before you ever go to court. That is not guaranteed.
My employer told me I was going to transport an item what is believed to contain an illegal substance. What can happen to my employer? I am in Human Resources and I am in no way shape or form associated with any form of law enforcement. It is unknown if the belongings has an illegal substance... View More
This largely depends on your employment. If you are a crime lab technician or a law enforcement officer, then transporting illegal substances happens every day and is perfectly legal. If you are a pizza delivery person and your boss asks you to transport drugs, that is a very different story. More...View More
The co-applicant is my girlfriend. She constantly harasses and threatens me. She will scream and yell for hours if need be. She does not help with any bills or household necessities (including food). She has no problem slandering me or my family constantly. She has no respect for me or anything in... View More
If you are both tenants on the lease, then you are in a tough spot. If she was just listed on the application as a resident and you are the sole renter on the lease, you likely could evict here. But if you are both true tenants, it is unlikely that you would have any superior right over her to...View More
My husband and I are going through a dissolution. We had 2 dogs, he got one and I got the other. I was finally able to see the dog he has and his nails are completely grown out and his undercoat is matted. My ex moved to a tiny apartment so he has nowhere to run and play. I was always the primary... View More
Your question indicates you are going through a dissolution. In a dissolution, the division of all property (including pets) must be agreed on ahead of time. In other words, the agreement must address the dogs, the judge will not make a decision on who gets the dog that day.
So my mother and I own a house together. I am on the deed of the house. She is trying to evict my boyfriend and father of my child out of the house we all live in. He pays one bill that is in her name. Can I fight her on trying to evict him? Can she even legally evict him if hes paying her... View More
If your mother owns the home, then she can evict your boyfriend. Simple as that. Since he has lived there 2+ years, she will have to go through the formal eviction process as he has clearly established residency there. It does not matter at all that he has been helping to pay bills.

The Mother has been out of the child's life for 6 years and in and out of jail. The Father has steady job and provides for the child in a stable home and does not want the Mother in his life. Will the courts allow
The mother has the legal right to petition a court asking that she be granted visitation with the child. The court will then evaluate the statutory "best interest" factors to determine if it is in the child's best interest to provide the...View More
If you are the biological father of a child, you are legally obligated to help support that child until it reaches the age of 18 and graduates from high school. It does not matter if you have any parental rights, or what those rights might look like, the law allows her to pursue...View More
I am the legal custodian of a 6 year old. Biological parents are not in Ohio they live 4 hours away in PA. They have a court order for visitation at their residence the first weekend of the month. I'm worried at the distance and because my husband is at higher risk and we have no idea or way... View More
My ex lives in Kentucky and I live in Ohio. We have court ordered visitation but due to the pandemic and the stay at home order, I do not think my child should travel from Ohio to Kentucky for visitation especially when her stepmom is a nurse and is likely exposed to COVID-19 already.
You can be held in contempt. The stay at home order and the pandemic restrictions DO NOT negate court ordered visitation. Travel related to custody exchanges is deemed essential travel and thus is allowed under the current public health changes.
I suggest trying to discuss your concerns...View More
