It is likely that her contract with her company contains non-compete and non-solicitation clauses that would prohibit her from sniping clients from them. There is likely a liquidated damages clause in the contract that the company would use to prevent her from working for you directly.
I have lived at my current rental property since June of 2020. We communicate with landlord via text. We have only seen him twice. Once when we viewed property. And another when we had a leak. He makes us do everything for maint. and he takes off of our rent. This year when we told our landlord we... View More

However, bio father just filed a petition to the courts for shared parenting/paternity. Paternity was never established. Bio father has not supported our child for 1 year and 1 month... View More
You will in all likelihood prevail on your stepparent adoption. In Ohio, when a biological parent has failed, without reasonable justification, to provide support for over a year to a minor child, his consent is not necessary to proceed with the stepparent adoption.

She has recently stopped taking her medications and seeing her doctor. She drives her car recklessly. (Has new, lrg damage to drivers... View More
Unfortunately this is likely a time to seek guardianship over your mother. If she is declining and isn't able to take care of herself, you will need to petition the probate court to obtain guardianship over her. If she refuses to see a doctor who can perform a competency exam, you will also...View More

My Husband and I went no contact with our children’s Grandparents due to a toxic environment, and the Grandmother threatening me in my house, and we felt the decision was best for our family and kids. The Grandparents watched the kids while we worked and it wasn’t a positive time all of the... View More
If you are married to the father of the children, the grandparents have no rights whatsoever. Not even to visitation. The only way they could get rights is if they seek full custody by establishing that both you and your husband are an unfit parent, an extremely high bar.
Dower is still a thing, unfortunately. A prenuptial agreement waiving claims to certain property will, as a matter of law, eliminate dower. However, as a matter of practice, most banks will not fund a transaction if the spouse does not waive their dower interest as part of the sale on the deed...View More
We were told the job would be done in Feb 2023, It is now June and we are still being delayed and not scheduled. Our contractor has been "scheduling" dates to start for months but then reschedules the day before, most times without notifying us unless we reach out to them. I asked to... View More
Had roof done on 5/5/22. City inspector found out they didn't have permit. They apparently have an issue with getting the permit and still do not have it. This has been over a year now. I have the money waiting to pay them and am of course willing to pay them if they ever get their legal... View More
There are a few parts to this question. Debt incurred by a spouse alone will not, generally, expose you to liability from the creditor, even during marriage. This debt, during divorce, may be considered marital debt, and it is possible that some or all of the debt may be apportioned between the...View More
It is illegal to smoke marijuana in Ohio. This is true even if you have a medical card. Your employment is also not protected from the use of marijuana even if you have a medical card. Marijuana in your system will likely be determined to be a contributing factor in any accident.
My coparent and his wife continuously harrass me over text. They attack me, my character and parenting style. No threats of harm have been made. I do not respond to these messages yet they continue to send them. I don't block their number because my son lives in their household during... View More
If you don't have an existing custody order, I'd recommend pursuing one and making a condition of the order being that everyone uses a third-party messenger service, like Our Family Wizard, to communicate. The benefit there is that anyone, including the court or GAL, will have instant...View More
We are trying to contract with an illustrator. Our CEO is insistent that we require the illustrators physical mailing address for the contract to be valid, the illustrator is only offering us his email at this time.
It can be valid without an address. I agree with your CEO though that you should require a physical mailing address in the contract. If the contract is breached and you need to sue then you will need their address to start the lawsuit.

Now he is moving in with his current girlfriend who has 4 kids, 2 seniors 2 freshman,... View More
If you are married, you should file for divorce and seek a temporary child support and spousal support award as part of your filing. If you are not married, you should go to your county's child support enforcement office to obtain an administrative child support award.
If the father has failed without good cause to see the child OR has failed to provide more than de minimus support for at least one year prior to a petition for adoption, you can obtain adoption over your grandchild without his consent.

Your father needs to seek a guardian ad litem to represent you in the divorce. Talk to the guardian once they are appointed and tell them this information. It is very likely that the guardian will recommend custody to your father if they hear you say that, even without proof.
Why are you doing this? The short answer is "yes", but there can be consequences to doing this if it is in the context of a divorce. If you are doing it pre-divorce, and transferring for no value, then the court can make you pay back the marital equity to your spouse in the divorce as you...View More
If I were to be in a partnership LLC, and my partner wants to transfer a property into the company, would that automatically affect his amount of ownership like an initial capital contribution would? Or is there a choice to not give over ownership for the contribution to the company
This first question is "what does your operating agreement say about it?" If you don't have one, then the question becomes whether this is being transferred for value received, transferred without value, and why the transfer is being made.
