Legal Answers
15 Questions Answered
Q. The mother of my step children ask the kids where I work, what bills I pay, how much money I make. Is this harassment?
A: It's likely not harassment within the legal meaning. However, it's not appropriate. These kinds of issues should not be discussed with children.
Q. We both make close to the same amount of money, will there be alimony? We both own the house, what happens?
A: It's difficult to say based on the small amount of information provided whether or not a Court would be likely to award spousal support. This is decided based on about a dozen factors; however, differential in income is one factor (and usually the most important). The Court will consider things such as whether either of you contributed to the other's career, your relative retirement assets, length of marriage, etc. For your house, normally there are 2 options if you are both on the deed and mortgage: (1) it is sold and proceeds are split or (2) one of you retains the house, refinances, and pays the other 50% of the equity in the house to the date of marriage. In Ohio, cats are considered property. So, the Court will view them the same as say a necklace. While this isn't fair to your pets (or you and your spouse) be prepared to have to figure out the cats between you and your spouse, or through your attorneys.
Q. 10 years ago a judge ruled that the non custodial parent can claim the child on their tax return every other year.
A: No. However, if you go back to Court, then the Court will likely allocate the dependency exemption/ credit to you.
