One can make out a Limitted Power of Attorney for Child Care that would extend their parenting powers, including school enrolment, records and educational decision making, to another individual. A General Durable Power of Attorney does not accomplish this, however.
Ask the JAG officer to draft a Child Care POA.
This student may wish to talk to a debtor's rights attorney. For more immediate relief this student should speak to and write whoever made this decision concerning the "independent" status and become familiarized with the financial aid department's definition of "independent". It sounds as if the student is running into a formula or regulatory problem. Find out what the appeals process is.
Before one could really answer your questions you need to provide some additional information.
Has the court set a discovery schedule? Usually CMC is when the court tries to figure out the issues to be litigated. When the opposing counsel requests documents from you is when you need to provide them, but not a minute sooner. Figure out if there is anything you want from the opposing party.
I suggest you familiarize your self with the Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure and Rules of Evidence...
Not locating the father will be problematic but not insurmountable.
As the other attorney suggested you may serve the father by process server (that is someone physically goes to his last residence and serves the papers there or perhaps at his place of business). You may also serve him by FedEx in Summit County. Often people who wont sign for a certified letter will sign for FedEx or UPS.

I agree with Attorney Gast, but wish to caution you that you cannot afford NOT to retain an attorney in the other jurisdition to fight the emergency motion. Your loss of sobriety and the presence of the children in the target jurisdiction are two facts that play very well to your ex-husband. You may wish to see if there is a legal aid program near your ex-husbands's court.
This question is too brief to answer. It is clear that many facts have been omitted.
Asuming for a moment that the asker is writing about two schools, did school # 1 actually make the loan? This author doubts that. More likely than not the asker enrolled in school #1, failed to timely unenroll; then enrolled in school # 2, hoping to transfer financial aid from school #1 to school #2 (without verifying in writing, if this were possible).
If my assumptions are correct, the asker needs to...
She should spend the money on a lawyer anyway. She clearly has no idea of what she is doing.
Once one has established the requisite amount of time in Ohio they may file for divorce against a non resident. The issue is one of service on the defendant. These are governed by the Ohio Rules of Court. I have attached a link to these rules below. Your boyfriend then may indeed waive service, by signing the appropriate pleading as well as sign off on a separation agreement, the divorce may...

Contact CSEA to begin the support process. Termination of parental rights, at this point, however, is very unlikely. The right to parent is considered "paramount" under both State and Federal law. It is among the substantive due process rights, protected by both the Ohio and U.S. Constitutions. Thus, the state would have to show that termination of the rights was neccessary, not just desired by you.
Good luck and vote this answer up, if you found it helpful.
