What should birth parents know about the adoption process?

An adoption can be an important time in the life of an Ohio family because it involves the creation of a legal relationship between a child and their new parents. However, there are two other important individuals who are affected by the adoption process, and they are the child's birth parents. Birth parents are the individuals who biologically created the child up for adoption, and they have important rights that all parties to adoptions should understand before beginning the process.

Spousal support changes may only be made in special circumstances

Pursuant to an Ohio divorce, a court may order that one party to the proceedings pay the other spousal support. As previously discussed on this family law blog, spousal support is money given to one ex-spouse to the other. It may be mandated permanently or it may be ordered for a shorter duration of time.

Can courts deviate from the child support guidelines?

The Ohio child support guidelines provide family law courts with a mathematical computation for determining how much money parents should be obligated to pay in support of their kids. Many factors are considered when a court begins to evaluate the application of the guidelines to a family's legal case, including but not limited to the amount of money that each parent makes or could make if they were fully employed, the financial obligations the parents have to children not born of the marriage, and others.
