Legal Answers
Q. My huband said he filed for a divorce in February of this year 2024.
A: Parties to dissolution or divorce in Ohio have a right to have their own attorney review any documents they receive from another attorney who represents their spouse. When an attorney represents one party the attorney will most certainly write the documents in a way that is advantageous to their own client. All separation agreements in Ohio are valid and enforceable once they are signed. Issues of property and debt in a divorce or dissolution are final upon signing any agreement. It can be very difficult or impossible to ask for changes to agreements or court orders after documents are already signed and especially after the court has already granted the dissolution or divorce. Parties will want to ensure that they understand all issues and that all issues are resolved before they sign any papers. It is advisable for anyone going through divorce or dissolution in Ohio to seek legal representation. ... Read More
Q. If a 14 yr d wants to go live with one parent over another parent during a dissolution. Can that parent get full custody
A: Parties to a dissolution in Ohio must agree on all aspects of the dissolution or they cannot file for dissolution. When children are involved the parties must agree on custody, parenting time, child support and any other relevant issue concerning the children to have a dissolution. When parties are not sure how to address their issues in a dissolution or if the parties are not agreed it is highly advisable to retain a local attorney who can assist with the filing.
Q. Are there any cases that cite about Parent alienation Syndrome or Malicious Parent Syndrome?
A: Parent alienation Syndrome and Malicious Parent Syndrome are not recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as actual "Syndrome". A Divorce or Custody case in Ohio based solely on the issues of alienation and malicious parent fails to take into the consideration the best interest of the children. The best interest of the children is court's sole focus. Parties should focus on the best interest factors which can include evidence of alienation or malicous parent.
