    Well is your home unfit for children? It doesn't sound like it from what you're saying, nor do her claims sound particularly meritorious especially given the way your husband obtained custody himself. In order for this case to affect yours, your children's father would have to file his own case and make the same allegations. Each case is decided on its own merit, and while, theoretically, your child's father and your husband's ex might work together to try and find evidence on your household...

    In general, you should send sufficient clothing, however, you are not obligated to pay for his day to day expenses when he is with the other parent. If your decree or court order says something different then follow the order or decree.

    If he is able to get access to it, yes. Your safest bet (for him) would be to store it off site. I would check with a lawyer who specializes in firearm law, better yet, let your roommate worry about it since he's the one who has the CPO on him.

    If your mom adopted them, they aren't your kids anymore and you have no rights whatsoever.

    File a memorandum opposing a new hearing and attach the papers from the previous one. While I agree that everyone should be heard, If they don't show it's on them. Also a lawyer's negligence is imputed to the client. I would also ask for attorney fees in the event a new hearing is granted.

  6. How can I get a reduction in child support payments of $1100 per month. I petitioned but was denied. What do I do?

    If you attempted to do this on your own, that's likely why you failed. Child support cases are complex and it's not a matter of simply showing a paycheck and saying that you don't make as much as you used to. Everyone says that. You need to meet with a family law attorney and discuss what went wrong and what you can do the next time. The Magistrate's / hearing officer's decision should be a good place to start. Also if you were turned down recently, you may be able to appeal. There's a...

    Time for your son to get a lawyer and file a motion to modify his support obligation. If he is going to jail, it is likely because he has already been found in contempt and has failed to make the payments necessary to purge himself. If he's been ignoring the documents he has been receiving from the CSEA that's pretty foolish. Time for your son to take responsibility, and by "take responsibility" I mean take responsibility for his legal affairs. The agency has procedures to modify support....

    Consider what you have alleged. You blocked him from a social network site (not sufficient to put him on any type of notice for anything). He then contacted you. You then put him on notice. His friends then contacted you. Do you have proof he told them to call you? He's not in control of 3rd parties. He then commented on a post after you unblocked him. I doubt commenting on a post meets the definition of contacting you. You have already put him notice. If he contacts you again, file...

    I don't know. It doesn't sound like he did anything wrong to me. If you don't want him to handle the second case, ask for a refund of your fee. If you agreed to a divorce and she violated it, it is likely cheaper to address those issues separately (yes you have to pay) than it would be to blow up the agreement and have a trial. In contempt actions for violations, there may also be attorney fees available. It is doubtful you would get attorney fees in a divorce trial. His actions make...

    That's a tough situation. You need to get with an attorney and file for shared parenting, parenting time and custody. Once you get a decision (or a temporary order) you can file an eviction against your girlfriend. Make sure you follow the proper procedure (30 days notice, then serve her with a three day notice) or you may end up owning her money for a wrongful eviction. Even if she hasn't paid a dime, she's still a tenant with rights under the Ohio Landlord Tenant Act. Remember under...
