10 Questions Answered

Q. My wife want to dissolve our marriage and want mediation. She has contacted a lawyer to helps through this.
A: Yes. You should schedule an appointment with an experienced divorce lawyer to discuss your rights and to develope points to help negotiate during the mediation. Don't be blindsided during the mediation process! Good luck.
Q. Soon to be ex-wife has temp sole custody of son,she lives in Indiana,I live in Ohio. can I still go for shared parenting
A: I assume the matter is pending in Indiana. Correct? I am not licensed there. Regardless of the state, you need a lawyer to represent you. In Ohio, you would not be precluded from Shared Parenting simply because you live in different states. It would essentially come down to a "best interest" determination of your son. But I know the Indiana has some different laws and positions from Ohio. Get that Indiana lawyer SOON. Good luck!
Q. If my wife moves out of her house that is in her name not mine, and leaves me in it...
A: More facts are needed but based on what you have indicated, you have no legal obligation to pay the mortgage. If a divorce is initiated, it is possible that might change somewhat. You have no legal obligation to remain in the house although it may be prudent for the time
Q. Can a warrant for non payment of alimony be reversed if the person declares they no longer want any payments from me?
A: Yes. Although it may take actions in 2 courts, including the domestic relations Court and the one that issued the warrant. You likely will need a lawyer to draft the agreed entry and coordinate the logistics. Good luck!
Q. File for a divorce with 2 children born during the marriage that arnt his . Do I file for divorce with children?
A: You must include the children in the divorce complaint since they were born during the marriage. You should also indicate that while they were born during the marriage that the defendant is not their biological father. This is tricky as child support hinges on this too. Courts have their own way they prefer to treat this situation. You really need a lawyer to do it right. www.hcmmlaw.com
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!
