My ex lied and deceived courts in obtaining an ETC and I could not afford representation during Review Hearing and it was ruled my 4 y/o little girl remain under his custody. This is despite his history of abuse and lack of any visitation orders. ...
This is a question for the attorney you have. If you are dissatisfied with your attorney, you are certainly permitted to get another one. Cases starting with an emergency order are not fun but it doesn't last forever,
Have a face to face meeting with your attorney, have him explain his plan of action and, if you feel uncomfortable, find a new attorney you have confidence in.
Best to you,
Married 19 yrs my husband was sole provider of income as he owns his own commercial plumbing co. He didn't want me to work even after I went to school for nursing degree because it interfered with traveling and said it would be better to stay home...
I'm believing you will get an attorney fee award and much more. Talk to other attorneys though. The idea there are too many assets to divide to do a dissolution is ridiculous although divorce may make more sense so you can get immediate relief.
Legal aid is an option but a better one is to speak with more attorneys. If things are as you state, this is one I would take for a reduced retainer.
By the way, don't be so quick to not at least have shared parenting with your daughter. How is it a perfect life for your young daughter to have her dad spending money on booze and women(plural in six months) after kicking the kid's mother to the curb to to live her vehicle with no heat.
There may be a support group for women in your area. Check. Call the local shelter for battered women to assist you in find an attorney and for help getting back or building self-esteem.
Best to you,
I want to get a divorce and trying to do it on my own since I don't have the money to hire a lawyer.
The is easy enough although it may not need to be in paper but by posting. Either way, it is six weeks. As to an attorney, legal aid was suggested. If that fails, you can get the necessary forms here:
If at all possible, opt for an attorney.
Best to you,
I live in Portage County and My Husband and I are filing for Divorce. We have been married for almost 33 yrs. My Husband makes 65,000 a year and I make 44,000.
Hello from someone that grew up nearby in Mantua.
You have two answers from attorneys so far and I agree essentially with both. Simply stated, add the two incomes and divide by two. So the 65+44/2 Or subtract which will give 21/2. So we need 10.5k to you to equalize incomes. But, there are other factors complicating it. There is a tax consideration for spousal support and another attorney suggested a FIN program be run. FIN is simply a computer program that takes taxes into consideration. While it yields a number, the court is to consider two things first.
Before even getting to spousal support, there must be a division of property as a matter of law. This can be by agreement or court order after evidence at a trial. Then you through your attorney, or the court, need to look at the statutory factors for spousal support. I'll link both statutes at the bottom. It's long and somewhat boring and confusing reading but important. Please note though in calculating the amount, the duration is also a determination. I cannot readily agree with the length suggested by another attorney. All factors must be considered and we have but two of those.
There are some very good attorneys in Portage County you can by using the phone book, internet or the find a lawyer tab here.
The two statutes are R.C. 3105.171 and R.C. 3105.18 and here:
I wish you well,
I've been separated from my husband for over 18 year's he failed to provide for me the basic needs and my oldest son reveled that my husband molested him when he was a child. I need to know what I can do to get a fast default divorce
Just file. I'm guessing after 18 years he won't file a response. Click the Find a lawyer tab on the top of the page and speak with one in our area.See question
I know I need to write a letter explaining my case. My husband (american citz.) will not be able to support our family, me and 2 boys, if I have to leave the country. As well it would put his career in jeopardy as he is working towards getting his...
Are you sure this is a divorce question. I'm seeing nothing indicating you want a divorce and in fact, seeing the opposite I believe. Perhaps this is a question better directed to an immigration attorney. If I'm misreading it, you can let me know.See question
My wife is an alcoholic. She has been in rehab twice for 60 days in the past 7 months. Each time she has come back drinking within three weeks. Recently she was to take care of our son 10 who is sick. I had an event with my daughter at the YMCA. I...
Not sure the police are going to help. You can file for divorce and file a motion for exclusive occupancy which the court can grant if warranted. Speak with a local attorney. It sounds like custody may be an issue as well.
Best to you,
I will admit I havent always done what I should have in the relationship I must get out of now, but I havent worked a job for over 4 years, have no car & must divorce my incredibly verbally & financially abusive husband. We own nothing but one 201...
You may have an ownership interest n the car if it was bought during the marriage. Check with Job & Family Services in our county and women's advocacy groups for assistance as well. It's possible you could get attorney fees. At least talk to an attorney on the phone. If all else fails, you can file on your own and try to get some support started. Use this
Best to you,
Ok, so my husband and I are separated and have been since 2014. He filed with child support so he could start paying. We will be having a hearing to establish child support soon. My question is, since we will already have a support order in place ...
You could get an attorney and do a motion to combine the two cases or if Erie County will let you do, just incorporate the support case in to the dissolution.See question
I heard he was already remarried but i went to county courthouse and no divorce was found. We have been married for a total of 23 years....its time to move on.
Use the last known address and if that doesn't work do service by publication or posting. See an attorney.See question
