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... Read 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.

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... Read 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.

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...Read more »

The short answer is: No, you cannot refuse visitation. The stay at home order does not change the visitation/custody order you have. If you fail to follow the court order you have, you could be in contempt.
The stay at home order in place in Ohio currently does not supersede valid custody/visitation orders in place. If you refuse to allow the mother her court ordered time, you could be found in contempt of court and subject to fines, attorney fees and possibly even...Read more »

One option you have is to petition the court to terminate the shared parenting. Under Ohio law, there are some baseline factors courts need to evaluate to to determine if shared parenting is proper. Those factors include many things such as ability to cooperate for the child's best interest,...Read more »
Holding you and preventing you from continuing on your way or returning home would require the officer to either detain or arrest you. They cannot simply deny your right to return home without legal justification that is sufficient to trump your constitutional rights.

In Ohio, whomever has custody of a child has the right to have that child live with them and in fact is legally responsible for their well being and care. If your mother was never granted formal custody, then she likely does not have any legal right to stop you from moving your daughter back in...Read more »
My boyfriend and his ex wife have no custody agreement yet. Can she keep me from watching the kids by myself at my boyfriends and I home? If she comes to the house while I am watching them alone does she have the right to take them?
First, if your boyfriend and his ex are officially divorced, then they would have to have a custody agreement in place. No court in Ohio would sign off on a divorce with children involved without there being a custody arrangement.
Second, if the divorce is still going on and that is why...Read more »
