Will the dissolution still go through without him being there?
I am sorry to hear about your boyfriend's condition. I certainly hope that he is recovering from his injuries. As the other attorneys have already informed you, if it is a dissolution, not a divorce hearing, it can not go forward without him. If he has an attorney, be sure to notify his attorney. If he does not, you can check his paperwork and see which judge is assigned to the case. You can then call the judge's assistant and inform him or her. The wife will have the option of getting the hearing rescheduled or filing for divorce.See question
My son is almost 8 and his father has been in prison for 6 1/2 years. He is 19,000, behind in support and just sent a message saying he wants to sign his rights over what do I need to do?
He cannot just "sign his rights" away to get out of his child support obligation unless there is a step-father who applies to adopt your son. You will probably need to consult with a lawyer as to what his obligations are and what your rights are. Good luck to you.See question
I have temporary custody of her while we are going through court.
If there is a restraining order, check the terms. The usual restraining order regarding removal of the children from Ohio prohibits a parent from taking the child out of state except temporarily for a vacation of less than 14 days. If he has violated this, you can file for contempt. There is a lot of additional information I would need before I could properly advise you. If you have asked for your daughter to be returned or he has hidden her whereabouts from you, you should contact the police. I also recommend consulting a lawyer.See question
Can I legally make my husband move out of my house today, since I did not make him leave when he was served on Thursday night- I was at work at the time.
The mere fact that your husband was served with your complaint for divorce does not require him to leave. You can not force him to leave the marital residence unless you obtain a court order that requires him to move out. Your lawyer could file a Motion for Sole Occupancy if there is a good reason for doing so. Of course, if he has committed acts of domestic violence toward you or has given you reason to fear that he will harm you, you may file a petition for a civil protection order and, if it is granted, he will be required to immediately leave the residence and stay away from you.See question
I lived in county "A" with ex-wife and was divorced there, and all custody and other issues have been dealt with there. County "B" is very pro-mother regardless of circumstances. My worry and question is, Is it possible that my future custody i...
Your custody case should remain in County "A" which is the county that has "venue" even though neither of you live there anymore. If all of you were to leave the state of Ohio, then either you or your ex-wife could apply to have the jurisdiction of Ohio terminated and ask the new state to take jurisdiction. I have known of a few instances where a case is transferred from the "deciding" county to a new county, but, the general rule, is to keep the case with the "deciding" county.See question
If my wife and I come to an agreement for child support outside of court and a judge/magistrate signs off on it as a part of our divorce...and 2 years down the road she gets mad and thinks that she can get more money and files for the order to be ...
She can go back for an increase if there has been a change in incomes or other factor that affects the amount of child support to be paid. It will not be retroactive to the date of the first order unless there was some irregularity in how the first order was issued or decided. An increase in support can, however, be made retroactive to the date the motion to increase support was filed.See question

Once a divorce case is filed, you should be awarded temporary spousal support, which will last while the divorce is pending. With such a short marriage, it is not likely that you will be granted post-divorce spousal support. You should consult with an experienced divorce attorney regarding the specific facts of your case (abuse, inability to work, etc.).See question
Just went to court last month for child'support, the magistrate ruled and gave the amount for our 3 children, even though their father is now unemployed, the magistrate based it on his last known employer. The paperwork was filed in April 2014 so ...
If the Magistrate issued the ruling on child support, then it sounds like the father has filed objections to the Magistrate's Report and Recommendations. These are ruled on by the judge, who can decide to reverse them, modify them, or order a new hearing. There is no deadline for the judge to rule, but one or two months would be normal.See question
My husband recently found a picture on his exs Facebook of his exs boyfriend and it states "the shirt says it all....(child's name) father's day gift to her daddy (boyfriends name)....left names out for confidentiality. The shirt says "best dadd...
If there is ever a contested parenting proceeding, this Facebook posting could be used as evidence of your husband's ex undermining of his relationship with his child. Having a child call a significant other "daddy" shows poor judgment on the part of the parent who allows it. Posting it on Facebook makes her look even worse.See question

Based on the facts that you have recounted, it is very unlikely that a court would grant custody to the father of your children. This is particularly true if you have been the primary caretaker for the children since birth and if you are a responsible loving mother to them. If your ex has never been legally determined to be the father of the each child, then you are the only person who has custodial rights and he does not even have visitation rights. I suspect that he is only trying to scare you by threatening to take you to court. Since he has never paid you child support, then a court would most likely issue a child support order and might even require him to pay retroactively to each child's birth. He could even be required to pay any uninsured birthing expenses you incurred. If the children are on Medicaid or any other public benefits, the state might go after him as well.See question
