I completed my entire sentence. jail time, diversion program, paid all my fines etc... the only thing I never did was pay the $475.00 to reinstate my OH Driver’s License because I had moved back home with my parents and started my life over in FL. I’ve had a valid Driver license for over 10... View More
Your reinstatement fess must be paid. You may enter into an arrangement with the Ohio BMV to make monthly $50 payments. You must have insurance in place when you apply. If you qualify, your driving privileges will be restored during the payoff period. Additionally, you may have to take a remedial...View More
Of course you will heed the services of an experienced, competent family law attorney. As a "legal stranger" to the child, in order to obtain custody you would have to establish to the court's satisfaction that it would be detrimental to the child to be placed with either her father...View More
Likely, the accident will carry its own set of penalties. The range of penalties in Ohio for an OVI are quite broad. Some are mandatory and the court has no discretion. If you took a breath, urine or blood test, and the level of any prohibited substance is considered "high" as defined by...View More
Question: Will the Appellate Court grant this ridiculous Motion for Reconsideration?
Background: Notice of Appeal was two (2) days late. Appellants attorney mailed it on a Friday thinking it would be fine and stamped by the Clerk on Monday. It was delivered on Wednesday. Appellate... View More
You and your fiance must first be married. The natural/biological father's consent is necessary except under limited and specific circumstances as they may exist at the time the Petition for Adoption is filed with the Probate Court.
Yes, you are looking at jail time, three days (low test) to a maximum of six months. Likely, your CDL is suspended now if you are under an Administrative License Suspension. This suspension is for one year and is triggered by the ALS. You MUST appeal the ALS suspension within a limited time frame...View More
Crashed vehicle Sunday morning around 515am. I had a couple beers the night before, around 11pm. I was completely sober. I crashed due to me lookin at my phone, gps for directions. Lost control at a curve and crashed into a pole and into a ditch. Officer could smell the alcohol on my breath and... View More
You present an interesting set of facts. Unfortunately, the best advice I can provide is obtain the services of an experience OVI/DUI attorney. Since there was no chemical test, the prosecution will have to rely upon circumstantial evidence that when you were driving and crashed you were impaired...View More
This my second ovi. First one 2011. I was taken to the hospital and submitted urine. I admitted to a beer and 2 shots. Plus possible marijuana in my system. I didn't want to lie. It had been a week or two since last smoking. They released me from the hospital and I was never booked or read my... View More
There is no BAC on the ticket because at the time it was issued the officer did not have the urine test results back from BCI. Did the officer read a form to you before you gave the urine sample? Did you sign the front of the form, BMV 2255? If you are convicted of a simple low test OVI, your...View More
Her mother died when she was 6 weeks old and her father signed over custoday to us we told him he could see her whenever he wanted to, the first 6 month's he would see her then nothing until she was 1 after that he contacted me through face book at the age of 10. Another time at 12 and just... View More
The father's consent would not be necessary if, within the one year preceding the filing of the petition for adoption, he has failed to provide more than minimal support for the child; OR, he has had no or minimal contact with the child. Assuming he objects to the adoption, these kinds of...View More
You should definitely talk to an attorney experienced in guardianship matters. Your question did not provide enough detail to offer more of an answer than that. The attorney would do far more than talk for you.
Ordinarily you would petition the court that issued both the custody and support orders, particularly since WV is close to OH. That would be the cleanest way of getting eveything done at one time. It would be unlikely that a court would modify the child support unless you had legal as well as...View More
Absolutely. The officer is just fishing to find some reasonable articulable suspicion that you may be impaired. He/she will ask this more than once. Don't change your story under the pressure of being asked the same thing two or more times. Just say no, or nothing. While he has you fishing...View More
She will return after a week, sometimes more, just to steal whatever cash we have in the house and then disappear again. She has had her friends block my phone number and even when an adult knows where she is they won't tell me. She is flunking school, and is begging for emancipation. i... View More
I recommend filing unruly charges against her in Juvenile Court and demand that the court give her substantial restrictions and consequences. Turn her in every time she steals from you. I would report any adult that is hiding her out to the authorities. Just be sure your hands are clean, and that...View More
You can do the DIP school in lieu of three days of jail, the judge can sentence you to up to 180 days of total jail time.. If you had a high test, your jail time would be a minimum of six days, or three in jail and three in the DIP. Again,there is no guarantee of receiving a minimum sentence.
I am moving to South Carolina and want to take my children with me the divorce has not been final but we are in the middle of it I want to get my kids in school down there so I need to move now so that they won't have to start in the middle of a school year is this something I can do without...

I would not recommend such a course of action without obtaining the go ahead from the divorce court. This is assuming the children are of the marriage that you are terminating. If the children are from a prior relationship, and the father has visitation rights, you must file a Notice of Relocation...View More
Also in video victim is smoking crack wishing me dead I hope in the devil get me also victim pulls nice and throw object at me. There is also police report for victim had stabbed me before there was ever a domestic violence case also there is a medical report to back that up.which is in public... View More
These all are matters that could aid in your defense at trial. Present this potentially exculpatory evidence to your attorney immediately. Bear in mind that if you in fact committed domestic violence against this person, you will have a hard row to hoe.
Never married. He never supported child nor saw her very often by his choice. If I just moved out of state and he is trying to serve me custody papers in prior state what happens if I never receive them?
First, the state to which you move would likely not take jurisdiction over the child unless the child had lived in that state for at least six months. Second, service can be completed upon you by publication, including in certain circumstances, by posting. Service by publication would require a...View More
