I live in ohio. My spouse has served two years of an 11 year prison sentence for burning down my home. I tried to file the paperwork for a divorce but it came back saying he wanted half of my belongings. He owes me over 100k in restitution. I don...
I seriously doubt he'll get it. If you can afford to get an attorney get one. If you really can't find an attorney that will help you out, the Supreme Court of Ohio has all the forms you need. Being in prison is a ground for divorce and so is living separate and apart for more than one year without interruption or cohabitation.
File and have him served by the sheriff of the county where the prison is by person service(do not use certified mail). Just file and don't allow him to bully you. If he's out of prison now, forget the first ground and if you have an address, serve him by certified mail.

I feel I've seen or answered this question before. The first question is why try to terminate rights? He's not exercising what he has ( although the exact wording of his time with the child would be nice to review) and paying child support now. You have for now what you want and support.
The thing is, the court is not going to terminate his rights. An adoption would but not by motion to the court. A court would, based on what you've written, more likely severely curtail time with your daughter and make it supervised. A motion by you may result in one filed by him for more time. Sounds like he has an uphill fight on that one.
He may not have much now depending on wording of his time. There are ways of wording these where he has nothing but you would have consult to review the wording.
Best to you,
I live in indiana and my daughter's father lives in Ohio. His name is NOT on her birth certificate but a paternity test was done and he DOES pay child support. About 3 years ago we went to court (in Ohio) and a parenting agreement was put in place...
File nothing. The court isn't going to terminate visitation and he's not doing it anyway so you already have you want. Plus, you're getting your child support. If you're married, your husband can consider adoption. It doesn't sounds like you need the father's consent. That would terminate all rights of the father.See question

Hard one to answer. Property obtained during marriage is marital subject to division. If your parents bought it for you and you can show that, the court could consider it separate property belonging to you. How it is titled is not the determining factor.See question

I suppose you could but it wouldn't compel payment. If the decree specifies what he is pay for uninsured/uncovered medical, etc. bills, file a contempt in domestic court. This has a better chance of getting payment because the penalty includes jail if he fails to perform.See question
