I recently just filed for divorce , received an answer and got a date set for the conference. My ex wifes family is fairly close with many in the legal system, including friends of my attorney in the county I starting pursing my divorce, which mak...
Because her family knows people I wouldn't let that concern me. I'd speak with my attorney about it but really, if the case is filed in the right county, it's about a zero percent chance it's going to be moved and could cost you money trying to do it. If it really appears there will be prejudice to you by the judge, you always have the option of filing an affidavit of prejudice with the Supreme Court of Ohio to try to remove the judge. In my county, we have one judge and two magistrates. It's easier for our judge to know people and when she senses it is a problem, she brings in a visiting judge on her own rather than risk the appearance of impropriety. Your attorney can explain all of this to you.See question
My parents were getting a divorce. Mom moved out. Dad had a will but did not specify who jewelry would go to. She wants it back saying it was a birthday gift to him. Do I have to give it back.
Hard one to answer. The Will would be controlling and if it was a general Will, it probably does to her since the divorce was not completed. You could litigate it in probate court but you would need a probate attorney, not a divorce attorney.See question
I was sentenced to 30 days jail for contempt for failing to pay a one time spousal support payment of $50,000.(I served 5 days) My funding source failed, and I simply do not have that kind of money. So, the judge sentenced me to 30 days for contem...
A warrant be issued and maybe on already has. A motion for modification can only be filed if jurisdiction was reserved to do so and, not having seen it, I'm guessing it wasn't. The contempt and motion to impose are two separate things. Try to pay the $3,000 and get an attorney if nothing else but to get more time or modify the payment structure. Avoiding service is not the answer. At some point, they'll get you and good luck when they do.See question

It shouldn't be that difficult, Get an attorney and you can certainly suggest your new attorney with your former attorney.

My husband has shared debt with his ex wife that was not written in his divorce agreement. She asks him for money every month to pay his half of the payment. Is this the best way to handle it? There is no paper trail or record of him paying for hi...
Without more, it sounds like his debt, not your debt, In a divorce, it should be his responsible to pay it.
Your attorney can make sure it is specified.
Best to you,
My soon to be ex-wife started dating and having sleepovers and we aren't yet divorced. She moved in with her mom in July. I have full custody of our girls (6 and 4) thru the temporary orders. As of the last year or so, she has shown a terrible lap...
Typically none but you can fashion one. It's never good to be introducing children to a significant order until it is known for sure the person is really going to be around. A parade of men in front of the children is never good for the kids. Have your attorney draw up a tight clause. If it is already impacting the children in a negative way, have your attorney consider filing an appropriate motion with the court.
Best to you,
Today I attended my final court date for the dissolution of my marriage in the state of Ohio. The judge asked if I was with child and to the best of my knowledge I am not. However I started seeing someone a few months ago and when I think about it...
It's valid but what Mr. Harp says is correct. Get it straightened out so it doesn't come back to haunt you.See question
I had my will drawn in South Carolina by an attorney. I have moved to Ohio. Must I do anything to make sure it is valid in Ohio.
Not really a divorce question but your Will is still good. If it was valid in SC, it'll be valid here. You may want to have it reviewed though by an attorney because there may be other things, as mentioned, that may not be as good now. Like a power of attorney or durable power of attorney for heath care. If you bought a home in Ohio, there are other ways you can do transfers other than through an estate.
Best to you and welcome to Ohio,
my husband left the household for another woman. he has been gone for 3 months. he now wants to come back with her and put me out. i have contributed to this home for 23 years.can he put me out to let her in?
No, but it's likely he'll get the home but, that doesn't mean you do not have an interest in it. You need to speak with a divorce lawyer in the Amherst area.
Best to you,
