Our lease states, "Conducting any kind of business (including child-care services) in your apartment or in the apartment community is prohibited – except that a lawful business conducted ―at home‖ by computer, mail or telephone is permissible if...
Only the landlord has the right to evict. One tenant can't evict another tenant. Also, it doesn't appear that her conduct would even be a violation of the lease terms as it is lawful business conducted at home by computer.See question

The Landlord has no obligation to return the a security deposit that was not paid by you to you. In fact, they could find themselves paying double if the original tenant ended up making a claim for her deposit back. You should contact the old tenant and execute and agreement where she assigns all rights to the security deposit to you and your roommate.See question

Listen to Attorney Bauer. The idea that a police detective is out there attempting to negotiate/collect a debt between a landlord and a tenant doesn't pass the smell test. Your father needs to lawyer up and have them get to the bottom of this. I would not give anyone any money without being represented by your own attorney!See question

You may be able to do it yourself. However, I would strongly recommend consulting an attorney. Frequently, contempt actions, when granted, come with attorneys fees. This means that you may be able to retain an attorney at no cost to you.See question

I am going to go out on a limb and assume that you are talking about a labor contract. While it is a contract, labor agreements are a completely separate animal than a typical employment contract. They are governed by O.R.C. 4117 and entire slew of other civil service laws contained in the Revised Code. You also will likely have arbitration and potential review by the S.E.R.B.
If all of my assumptions are true, you should contact your Union rep and follow the procedure set forth in your Collective Bargaining Agreement to address contract issues. If the Union fails to file a grievance you should seek a private attorney to potentially bring suit against your Union for failure to fairly represent. Something important you have to realize is that the Union owns the grievance process, not the employee and it is the Union's responsibility to bring action.See question

There are some specific rights tenants have in a foreclosure situation. You can read some FAQs provided by the Ohio Bar Association - https://www.ohiobar.org/ForPublic/Resources/LawYouCanUse/Pages/Is-Your-Landlord-in-Foreclosure.aspx.
As a practical matter, the three day notice is a required prerequisite to starting the eviction process. If you have a lease and have been continuing to pay rent it is likely that the new owner will not be able to evict. However, if you haven't been paying rent, the new owner will be able to evict you as long as they follow the proper steps. The time frame from three-day notice to actually being evicted usually takes between 14-28 days depending on a few variables.See question
My lease says nothing about smoke damage. My landlord states that they are holding my deposit for painting and lost rent because the tenants had to move out for a week and move back in.
You need to have your lease reviewed. If your landlord has wrongfully withheld your deposit you are entitled to double the amount wrongfully withheld and attorneys fees.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

The monetary limit in small claims court is actually $3,000. You could sue in the regular division of the municipal court or common pleas court. I would think a more prudent avenue would be going to the police to see if there is some way they can assist you before bringing a court action.See question
Husband has refused mid week phone calls with minor children. And has withheld them against courts order for visitation
If you had an attorney help you with the divorce, contact that attorney to assist you with the contempt action. Some County's have forms on their websites that are available, others do not and may not have form at all. Contempt actions often come with attorneys fees, so it would be worth a consult with an attorney before attempting to go forward on your own.See question
