    When you appear for the temporary support hearing you should ask the Magistrate if you can have ten days to provide the court with additional documents and information that you believe would be relevant to temporary support. Most Magistrates will allow this and will issue an order giving each side additional time to submit documents and information concerning temporary support. If this occurs, prepare a document captioned with your case name and number which you will call Plaintiff or...

    For you to get your divorce in Ohio you must have been a resident of the State of Ohio for at least six months immediately before filing the complaint for divorce and must file it in a county where you have been a resident for at least ninety days at the time you file your complaint. If you and your spouse never lived together in Ohio while you were married, then the court would only have jurisdiction to grant you a divorce, but not have jurisdiction to divide property or issued support...

    Assuming your minor children reside with you in Ohio, you could do a Dissolution of Marriage in Ohio. The dissolution is usually quicker and less expensive than a contested divorce action. To do the dissolution, you would need to among other things enter into a separtion agreement with your husband that provides for property division, parenting matters and support. I strongly suggest you retain a domestic relations attorney to represent you in this matter. Even if you and your husband...

    You need to contact the Legal Aid Society in the county you reside in to determine if you are eligible for one of their attorneys to represent you for free to obtain your divorce. If Legal Aid Society cannot represent you, sometime they can referr you to a local attorney who can do the case pro bono or for a reduced fee. If that does not work, call the Bar Association in the county you reside in and ask them if they can refer you to a domestic relations attorney who might take the case for a...

    The five questions I would ask are: 1. Do you try to return client's phone calls on the same day they call?. 2. Once you know the issues and facts, do you actively work to settle divorce cases within a reasonable time to try to avoid, if possible, lengthy court proceedings? 3. What percentage of your cases involve domestic relations cases and do you primarily practice in the divorce court my case would be heard in? 4. How many years of practice do you have in which you have...

  6. Claiming a dependent in an even year for tax filing means file in 2012 for 2011? Or file in 2013 for 2012?

    The order could have been more clearly drafted. It would be clearer, if it stated that you could claim the dependent in even numbered "tax" years. As it is now drafted it simply states you can claim the dependent in even numbered years. I would interprete this to mean that you could claim the dependent on your 2012 tax returns and other even numbered tax years, not on your 2011 tax returns which is an odd year. In any event, I would discuss this with your former spouse to make certain they...

    My understanding of your situation is that your divorce decree required you to make the payments on the Cobalt and hold your former wife harmless concerning that obligation. When you voluntarily turned the car in, that left an unpaid balance owed on the car loan. What is unclear is what state you and you wife were divorced in and what state the the Cobalt was titled in. Did it have Illinois license plates and you moved to Ohio and you could not get Ohio license plates? Or did it have Ohio...

    Did your divorce decree provide for any division of his police penison? If so, please send me a copy of your divorce decree so I can see what provision was made. Your husband retired before the Ohio law provided for survivorship. However, some early divorce decrees reserved jurisdiction in the event the law changed in the future and had what was called a contingent QDRO. So for me to intelligently answer your question I need to see what your divorce decree provided.

  10. How do i drop a protection order?

    You need to personally meet with the prosecutor assigned to your case to explain what happened and that you want the protection order dismissed. However, do not expect this to occur that easily. As the alleged victim you will be given the name of a victim advocate who you should also contact and hopefully enlist as someone who has explained to you your rights and can advise the prosecutor you still wish the protection order disissed as it is not appropriate or necessary.
