Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. At what age can a minor decide the custody of themselves?
A: There is no set age. At some point, minor children begin to possess the maturity to intelligently make such decisions based on relevant reasons. Younger children may make such decisions based on arbitrary reasons such as who will give them more ice cream or out of fear of rejecting a parent. An older child may consider which parent is more likely to ensure that they regularly attend athletic and other extracurricular activities, which parent may provide consistent wholesome meals, and a more pleasant home life. Of course, even older children can be swayed by material things and fear. This is why it is a good idea to have a guardian ad litem appointed to the child, who can learn the child's wishes and determine whether such wishes are in his or her best interests.
Q. I refused breathalyzer and got hit with one year als for refusal. Is it possible to reduce it to 6 months?
A: The ALS is for one year. However, once one pleas guilty or no contest to or is found guilty of DUI/OVI, the judge cancels the ALS suspension and can impose as little as six months license suspension. The judge could impose more than one year, too. My experience is that many judges simply impose a six month license suspension. I noticed that you are from Michigan. These suspensions apply to people with Ohio driver's licenses. Out of state driver's licenses can wind up being subject to the license sanctions in Ohio plus their own state. Because the licensing schemes may not match up well, these sanctions can wind up being quite extreme. In some states, an Ohio OVI conviction can result in a complete revocation of one's driver's license.
Q. Can a creditor attempt to collect a debt that was filed as "Avoid lien using 11 USC 522 (f) after a Ch. 7 discharge?
A: You should send them a copy of your bankruptcy discharge notice. The creditor's attorney may only be looking in Ohio federal courts, instead of the national database. If they continue to pursue you after sending them the notice, you may be entitled to damages for violation of your rights acquired through bankruptcy. One possible exception is if they are pursuing their lien rights. If you properly avoided the lien, they lost that right. If not, they may still be permitted to pursue that, and only that, remedy.
Q. can wife file bakruptcy and not affect me?
A: Your wife's bankruptcy will not affect your credit. As long as you can apply for a loan without having to list your wife's income, you should be able to rely on your own creditworthiness. However, if she transferred ownership of any property to you recently, the bankruptcy trustee may seek to take those things from you. You should consult with a bankruptcy attorney and review whether there are any pitfalls in filing an individual bankruptcy.
