Legal Answers
74 Questions Answered
Q. My wife filed for divorce. The papers were sent a month ago via certified mail. I have not received the papers.
A: The Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure require that service must be completed on the opposing party prior to the court making any final rulings in the case. There is nothing to do until the papers are received from the post office, sheriff or process server. Parties who avoid service can be served by publication notice in a local newspaper. If parties are in agreement to go forward with a case they can file a waiver of service to absolve the filing party of the requirement to serve the court papers by certified mail, process server or sheriff. Parties should be aware of all court timelines and timelines for answering in filing any waivers.
Q. Can a father with shared parenting of a minor give POA to step parent
A: A parent can grant permission for a step parent to handle certain duties and responsibilities concerning their own child. However, issues may arise concerning the minor child if the other parent finds out that their child's opposite parent is relinquishing their duties and responsibilities to a step parent. Also, most medical providers and schools will not accept a power of attorney if there another parent who is legally authorized to make decisions. Medical providers especially are becoming more stringent about this requirement and are now keeping child custody orders on file as to who is allowed to authorize care. Recent laws have been passed concerning this issue.
Q. Do I have to let my child's father have alone visits if I get child support? He is narcissistic and has mental issues ?
A: Pursuant to Ohio Revised Code 3109.042 an unmarried female who gives birth to a child is the sole residential parent and legal custodian of the child until a court of competent jurisdiction issues an order designating another person as the residential parent and legal custodian. This means that the Mother is allowed to deny visits altogether if she so chooses. An unmarried Father in Ohio must file papers in the County Court of Common Pleas Juvenile Division to request that the court establish paternity and/or to allocate the parental rights and responsibilities concerning the minor child. A mother may file for child support at her local child support enforcement office. Many times when a mother files for child support it will prompt a father to allocate his parental rights and responsibilities for shared parenting or parenting time.
