    I believe that something maybe missing from your Journal Entry. Review and see if there is any language in the entry that indicates how or to whom it should get directly paid. In Cleveland, it is generally required to be paid through CSEA, unless it is specifically says to be paid directly. Review all the paperwork thoroughly. You should have an attorney review the paperwork or you could be in violation if you do not pay support correctly. Please contact me with any questions.

    In the state of Ohio the courts devide everything fair and equitably. The house would not have to be sold provided she can buy him out of his portion of the equity in the property. She would be entitled to a portion of his assets, including any retirement, pension. Theproperty can off-set each other.

    There is a one year statute of limitations for this intentional act. You can sue him in civil court, but it would be up to you to prove your damages. Technically, it would be the difference between you(before the attack) and you (after the attack). It will be tough.

    Usually only the Respondent can violate the protection order, as you have not been ordered to do or not do anything (Unless it was a joint protection order). Someone should have explained that the protection orders last 5 years. If you have felt threatened/stalked by the respondent there should not be a desire by you to contact the respondent. If it was for the children and nothing has changed, why would you want the protection order changed? Generally, you are able to modify protection...

    If she does not have a long delinquency records, she probably will not go to jail. It also depends on which judge/magistrate you have. Some judges/magistrates are more strict. An important factor is your daughter's attitude towards the situation. IF SHE IS FOUND delinquent, a probation officer will visit you and discuss with you, your daughter and possibly contact teachers and other professionals that your daughter has contact with. The probation officer will make a recommendation to the...

    It will be difficult to stop the biological father from seeing the child. In these types of cases, as the court proceedings drag on, he may lose interest and drop the case. However, a bad history is something that could be discussed with a guardian ad litem if one was appointed by the court. Gather all your information, ie. police reports, criminal records, mental health reports, anything else that would prove your case. Remember...obey all court orders no matter how much you disagree....

  10. Filing with the courts for release of transcript`s.

    Answered over 2 years ago.

    1. David Scott Bartos
    1 lawyer answer

    There is no form. You must prepare a "Motion To Release Transcript", prepare a certificate of service and show that you are mailing to all the parties involved in the case. There will be costs involved. You can file it pro se, but if it is not done correctly it will not be granted. What do you need the transcript for? If you would like to discuss it more, please call my office.
