    You need to consult with an attorney, provide him with your divorce decree and any orders, then and since, so he can determine exactly what is owed pursuant to the decree. Perhaps, a motion in contempt would be in order? See my website for post decree modification for a general gist of the procedure involved. If as you say, this would be worth pursuing.

  3. What age can a child say which parent he wants to live with?

    Preference of child varies depending upon age, maturity, intelligence & reason for the preference. I say preference, because the child can indicate to the judge in a private conference which parent he prefers to live with, but the court has the final decision. Courts and even judges have different views too regarding young children. Those under five years old are usually considered too young to state a preference. A recommend consulting with an attorney in any divorce, especially where custody...

    The specific document needed here is a Disposition of Bodily Remains [declaration for funeral arrangements]. With this you can make advance wishes known regarding all the details regarding your body and funeral. I include this in my Will Package, along with the Will, Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney, healthcare power of attorney, and one transfer on death affidavit for realty, if needed. All of the above are also prepared individually if that is your desire. I call it my estate plan for...

  5. I was granted half of my ex-husbands retirement in the divorce decree. Is there any way he can keep this from me?

    Mr. Piper's answer is good. However, the order you will be seeking is not a QDRO. The correct order for the STRS system is a DOPO, [Division of Property Order] The purpose is the same as a QDRO but a bit simpler in some respects. The general procedure is similar also. Be sure that your counsel stays on top of this. I've seen these drag on for years when counsel was dilatory. Also, be advised that pension orders may increase your attorney fees.

  6. Father's right to contest child support and custody when mother took kids out of state under OH child custody law

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    1. Monte Kenneth Snyder
    1 lawyer answer

    Assuming by your brief description that you are divorced with a valid child support and custody order in place, you may move the court for a contempt order. Most decrees & orders now have a provision that requires the custodial parent [sole custody situation] to notify both the court & the ex spouse of their intent to relocate out of state. You (may) have visitation rights under the order which you cannot now exercise as you don't know her location. She has the right to relocate, but not to...

  7. I'm 22 and I need to divorce my biological mother, how do I do that in Ohio?

    An unusual question. Children cannot "divorce" their parents, as they are not married. Per your question, your only problem is qualifying for student aid. You are legally an adult, so the only thing that should complicate student aid, provided your are a U.S. citizen or legal resident, would be if your mother or someone else is claiming you as a dependent on their income tax returns. Consult your financial aid office at your school as to what the problem is.

  9. If one party does not agree to divorce, the other party can submit some kind of divorce action and get divorced? Is it true?

    I agree with Mr. Rosenberg. Without actually knowing what the "divorce paper" is, it sounds like a separation agreement. You must consult with a family law attorney soon to determine what he is actually attempting and what your options are. You may have rights and assets at risk. Do not attempt to do this on your own. It is rare that a divorce is not granted once one spouse pursues it.

  10. My step dad purchased CD's in his name only. Do my siblings and I have a right to half of these upon his death?

    I agree with Ms. Burley. I'd add that your step-father might have named a beneficiary on the CDs, which would then pass outside of probate to those named. Your mother may be entitled to a share of the probate estate, wither under the will or if she elects to take against the will. Children not of his bloodline do not take under Ohio's laws unless they are provided for in his will. These matters are time sensitive. There may be other documents too, such as a prenuptial agreement. Your mother...
