    I am uncertain as to the type of hearing that you refer to in your question. Is it an unemployment compensation hearing? A termination hearing? I need more information in order to provide an accurate response. Jeff Milbauer, The Milbauer Law Firm, Middletown, Ohio

  • Do I need an attorney?

    I purchased a home with my boyfriend 12 years ago , we are now separating. How do we go about separating the things we acquired together? House, 5 vehicles and furniture. He says I do not need a lawyer unless I am going to sue him. I just do...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Because you are not married, the domestic relations court does not have jurisdiction to resolve your property dispute. If you and your boyfriend are unable to come to an agreement, then a suit would have to be filed in the municipal or common pleas court in your county. Due to the amount of joint assets at stake, I would strongly recommend consulting with a qualified attorney. Good luck! Jeff Milbauer, The Milbauer Law Firm, Middletown, Ohio 422-5456

  • How long will a custody case take? I am 16 and my dad is filing for custody of me because my mom's house is not livable for me.

    My mom is okay with me living with him.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    If the conditions in your mother's home are such that an emergency exists, your father can get what is known as an ex parte order of temporary custody. This can be done very quickly. Since your mother is not opposed to your father having custody of you, a grant of legal custody will not take long. Good luck. Jeff Milbauer, Middletown, Ohio

  • Do I pay the fine, or do I go to court?

    I live in ohio and recently recieved a drug abuse ticket for posession of marijuana while canoeing on the river. I have the option to just pay it out, but the rangers were very nice and kept advising me to plead not guilty, they said i would get s...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Possession of under 100 grams of marijuana is a minor misdemeanor in Ohio, and carries a maximum penalty of a $100 fine and court costs. Sounds like just "paying the ticket" is the easy thing to do. WRONG! This offense carries a mandatory driver's license suspension of six (6) months to three (3) years. The rangers, gave you good advice. You should retain a qualified attorney who can work to get the charge amended so that you do not lose your license. Jeff Milbauer, Middletown, Ohio (513) 320-6325

    her mom is ok with it its my dad her step dad who has a problem with it but only when he is drinking he is a drunk and mean to her when he is drinking

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    If I understand you correctly, it is your sister's step-father who has an objection to you being granted custody of her. If he is not a custodian of your sister then he has no legal standing to object.

  • Is it a mandatory license suspension in Ohio/how likely is that for a possession of marijuana charge?

    It is my first charge. No other priors except for an underage possession of alcohol from years ago. We were not smoking at the time of citation, nor were we intoxicated/under the influence at the time of citation. I was not driving. I ask because ...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Conviction of possession of marijuana, even if a minor misdemeanor, carries a mandatory suspension of a drivers or commercial license for a minimum of six months up to a maximum of five years. I have handled many of these cases and have often been successful in getting the charge amended to a disorderly conduct which does not require a license suspension. You should retain the services of a qualified attorney in order to protect your license. Jeff Milbauer, The Milbauer Law Firm, Middletown, Ohio (513) 422-5456

  • Caught shoplifting at Walmart in Ohio. First offense of any kind. Any info would be appreciated.

    Yesterday I attempted to shoplift a $50 item from walmart. I was stopped by a LP person as I was trying to leave the store. He walked me into a back room, and said that if I had my ID, that he wouldn't call the police. I obliged, and he took it an...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Shoplifting is theft, a misdemeanor of the first degree in the State of Ohio. This offense carries a maximum penalty of six (6) months in jail. It is, therefore, obviously a serious offense. The fact that you have no prior record is helpful. Having a theft offense on one's record can make it difficult to obtain employment. If you get no other offenses, you can have the offense expunged one year from the date of conviction. You definitely want to seek the representation of a competent criminal attorney. Too much is at stake to go it alone. Good luck. Jeff Milbauer, The Milbauer Law Firm, Middletown, Ohio. Telephone: (513) 422-5456

  • How do we stop the ex wife of one of our employees from harassing us?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You could file a lawsuit against her for slander and libel. These type of lawsuits can be difficult to win, and collecting any judgment could be problematic as well. Perhaps merely the threat of a lawsuit may dissuade her from continuing her attacks. You should contact an attorney who specializes in civil litigation and discuss this matter with him or her. If she poses any type of physical threat to you or your husband or is physically present at or near your home or business, you could go to your county Common Pleas Court and file for a Civil Protection Order. Good Luck. Jeff Milbauer, The Milbauer Law Firm, Middletown, Ohio (513) 422-5456

  • Can you be charged with domestic violence due to a simple argument where no violence took place?

    ..

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Theoretically one can be "charged" with any offense. The real issue is can you be convicted of domestic violence where there was no violence, but merely an argument? As attorney Weisenburger pointed out, one may be charged and convicted of domestic violence if they cause a family or household member to believe that they intend to cause them serious physical harm. Have you been charged with domestic violence yet or do you believe that such a charge is going to be filed? If the answer to either of these questions is "yes" then you need to contact a qualified criminal defense attorney immediately. Domestic Violence is a serious charge with very serious consequences for those who are convicted of this offense. Jeff Milbauer, The Milbauer Law Firm, Middletown, Ohio (513) 422-5456

  • What rights do I have as a shared parenting parent to have a say in my daughter's info at school?

    Hello, My ex husband recently added his live in girlfriend to the list to pick my child up from school when she's sick. I have no problems with that. On my daughter's report card, it had her dad and his girlfriend listed as the parents & was ad...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Ohio Revised Code section 3109.051 (H) provides that any records relating to a child shall be made available to a nonresidential parent under the same terms and conditions as they are to the residential parent, absent a court order to the contrary. In other words, if your problem is related to getting your child's grade card, or other school records, this statute should resolve that issue. Any record keeper who knowingly fails to comply with this statute may be held in contempt. On the other hand, if your primary issue is the fact that the girlfriend is listed as the child's mother on the report card then perhaps you should present the school with a copy of the child's birth certificate showing you to be the mother. If this does not resolve the issue then I would recommend consulting with an attorney. Jeff Milbauer, The Milbauer Law Firm, Middletown, Ohio (513) 422-5456
