I am really sorry to hear about the problems you have been having. But I have to agree with attorney King, you are not providing enough information to answer the question you are asking.
The best advice anyone can give you on this site would be to seek a consultation with an experienced family law/juvenile attorney. You will want to have an much detail about your situation as possible and any supporting documents for them to give you an accurate assessment of your situation.See question
Me and my ex were never married and we have two babies under 2 years old. He was recently charged with a felony for taking acid and breaking into someone else's home but he has not been convicted and just recently had his preliminary hearing . I w...
First, your ex has no rights at all in the state of Ohio until a court of competent jurisdiction gives him rights. So you do not have to allow him to see the children at all. Second, if he has a pending felony and was on drugs, those are two major strikes against allowing him any where near your children at this time. He obviously uses illegal narcotics and broke into someones home while on the drugs. Whether or not he is convicted in criminal court should not play any part in your decision to immediately move forward with filing to request a sole custody award from the court.
As for the "morality" clause, if you two agree on the clause being placed in an agreement on parenting, then there should be no issue with getting it in there. As to the court ordering such a thing, it would really be determined by the exact wording.See question

Your starting point needs to be with your decree of divorce/final decision. Typically if the court awards spousal support in a hearing, they will retain jurisdiction to modify that amount/duration. They do not have to retain on both aspects, but can if they choose. A very common attack on spousal is the remarriage or cohabitation in a marriage like relationship of the receiving party. So if you can show they are living an a "marriage like relationship", you will have something to discuss.
If spousal support changes, child support will most likely change also. The $600 per month you are paying is a deduction from your income and an addition to her income. So if that is terminated, you now have a $600 increase per month and she has a $600 loss.
I understand you situation and the financial burden it is causing, but you really need to sit down with an experienced family law attorney and discuss your concerns, possible evidence and the possible outcomes.
Good Luck.See question
The mother has been in and out of rehab. Contracted hepatitis and has made minimal contact with our children. I work full time to support them and the children are cared for by their grandma while I'm at work. After two years the mother shows up w...
You need to contact a family law attorney immediately. The reason she was able to come pick them up seems to be that you two were never married and under Ohio law, the unwed mother a child born in this state is deemed the custodial parent until a court of competent jurisdiction issues any orders to the contrary.
The best thing you can do is to contact an attorney experienced in these types of matters. Avvo has a search feature that can help you locate family law attorneys near you. You need to move as quickly as possible on this, because she does not have to give you any access to your children until a court orders it.
Good luck.See question

You question needs a bit more detail. Now when you say your "ex", do you mean ex-husband or just ex boyfriend?
If you have never been married and he has not been given parenting rights through a court order, then you do not have to allow him to take your children anywhere. If he has court orders for parenting time, they should address the need for him to provide you with contact information and location of where he intends to spend this time.
If you have been married and are now divorced, then you should have a parenting order that would address his rights and obligations to exercise the extended time.
It would serve you well to contact an experienced family law attorney to discuss your concerns, answer a few questions and discuss your options.See question
My husband and I are separating but I just recently found out that he is still married to his first wife.
Under Ohio law, your marriage would not be legally valid. I would contact an experienced family law attorney and discuss your options with that individual. An annulment would legally "erase" your marriage, but as attorney King pointed out, you may not want that if you have children that were born during your marriage.
Avvo has a very good attorney finder. I would use it to find someone in your area that can help guide you in this decision.See question
Your question needs to be a little more specific. For issues involving spousal support, if the court did not retain jurisdiction, then the issue is not open for review. If the court did retain jurisdiction, then they will look at it and determine if a modification is appropriate to consider under a "change of circumstance" standard.
Property issues can not be reviewed unless you are attempting to reopen the case under some issue such as fraud or mistake, typically a 60B motion in Ohio.
I would consult an attorney if you have been served with something such as this, because Ohio has a 1 year statue of limitation on these types of motions. So you will want an experienced attorney to review it.
If you are considering the above actions, you will want an attorney to consult with you before you spend you time and money on something that is legally and/or statutorily blocked.See question

The question of your back support will depend on the date in your agreement. You will typically have an effective date within your agreement. This will determine the amount, if any, back support.
I would consult an attorney immediately before signing anything.See question

Conflicts require a very fact specific review of the matter at hand. Based on what you have presented, I would not see a conflict that could not be resolved with a full disclosure and waiver.
Your ex may use whatever attorney she is willing and able to pay for. Since this attorney has never represented you, I do not believe the other issues raised would create a conflict that would prohibit her from using this attorney in a matter concerning you.See question

Unless it was placed in the original shared parenting plan, the other parent is not going to be "required" to provide a certain crib or bed. If you are concerned, you will need to file a motion with the court and attempt to modify your current plan to include the requirement.See question
