5 Questions Answered

Q. My husband and I are going to file for a dissolution. Do I need to be moved out of our home for 30 days in order to file
A: No. You may still be residing together when you file. Nonetheless, you should have plans to seperate at a later time. Good luck!
Q. Can a husband threat full custody if a wife choose to divorce and be with someone else?
A: Either parent can seek sole custody. The motivation of either party to do so isn't really relevant. The primary determination in a custody determination is the best interest of the child/children. Who is the primary caregiver? These type of "threats" are pretty typical unfortunately. Kids shouldn't be a pawn in divorce litigation - but emotions being heightened, it will happen. The parent who is best suited to care for the kids should ignore these threats and hang in there!
Q. In Ohio, filing for divorce, does the plaintiff have to be present in court, or can he represented by a third party?
A: He or she will need to appear for the final hearing. A third party can not be substituted. If the plaintiff is deployed, the Court may allow that person to appear via video (depends on the Court). Hope this helps.
Q. My husband and I are filing for a dissolution and I was wondering how much say the court has on the terms already made
A: Typically not much especially if you are both represented by counsel. So long as the agreement appears fair on its face and it doesn't appear that there was any undue influence, the Court should approve it. Congrats on wanting to maintain that civil relationship!
Q. Married 18 yrs want a divorce what is he responsible for financially
A: Without knowing more specifics, he would be responsible for child support for your minor child and alimony 9depending upon income levels). You should contact an experienced divorce lawyer in your county to obtain more detailed information. My best working through it!
