  1. Is it illegal for a husband to change a wifes airplane ticket?

    Until they are separated and have divorce action pending their assets are joint, (that is they are both of theirs). Who paid for the tickets is immaterial. If husband had used wife's ticket for his own use (for a mistress for example), wife might be able to claw back the value of the ticket as part of the property settlement portion of the divorce. It sounds like your mom needs to get a lawyer though as it appears there is much she needs to learn about divorce law. These situations...

    Is this a new support order? If so it can take up to a few months for Ohio CSEC to catch up with the garnishments. Also the employer may have had some end of the year issue. Nevertheless hang on to your paystubs. If the issue continues for a few more months you will want to have them, in case CSEA looks at you directly. In the meantime a phone call to your support caseworker should clear the matter up. You will want to have your SETS # handy when making the call. Good luck and...

    Typically, the child tax credits are negotiated between the parties and ought to be in the separation agreement and / or the parenting plan you have submitted to the court. R.C. § 3119.82 governs how the court should decide who gets the deduction. "When issuing or modifying child support order, court must designate which parent can claim the children for tax purposes. 1. If parties agree, then court is to accept their agreement" (as I stated above). "2. If they do not agree, the court...

  6. Can I get a dissolution if my husband is incarcerated?

    You need his agreement to do a dissolution. You however can do an uncontested divorce without his agreement and it is not much different than a disolution. The cost difference is also negligible. It is the fact that there are children that adds expense. I am a attaching articles on divorce I published here. Good luck and vote up this answer and the articles if you find them helpful

    I agree with the other Attorneys If you are, indeed, an unwed mother you already have full custody and the father will have to sue for so much as even parenting time. If you are married and divorcing you will need to include a demand in your complaint to be made the custodian and residential parent of the child. Decisions concerning custody are made on the basis of the besti interests of the child. Attached, is a link to one of my articles on custody. Good Luck and please indicate if...

    Get a Probate Attorney now!! It is likely the Support Case can be transfered or merged into the Probate Case so you child can claim against his statutory share of the deceased's estate (provided the child was not named in the will) Did the executor contact you? When did the deceased pass away? Have you filed a claim against the estate?

    Much of the initial paperwork can be found linked to the website of your local Domestic Relations Court. I urge you, however, to seek the advice of an experienced divorce attorney, in your area. While the initial cost of several thousand dollars plus perhaps a few thousand more seems steep, one cannot afford to be "pound wise and penny foolish" in this area of life.

    You may not sue your university for negligence. It is not their job to keep track of your loans. It is yours. You may wish to speak to a debtor's rights lawyer to explore your options.
