When do courts order sole physical custody of children?

Child custody is a complex legal issue and can affect families in Dublin in different ways. As Ohio courts look to protect the best interests of the children whose custody matters appear in their chambers, it is important that our readers remember that different custody cases will be resolved based on their own unique facts and issues. Sole physical custody can be ordered for different reasons.

The status of oral and handwritten wills in Ohio

A will is an important legal document that is often included in the estate plan of a Dublin resident. A will must meet certain requirements in order to be valid and if it does not meet those mandates it may not be recognized as controlling when a person passes away. Generally, a will must be made by some who is an adult, who is of sound mind, who was not forced into make their will and the will must be signed by its creator and two other witnesses.

When can you stop paying support to an ex-spouse?

Spousal support is an obligation created between two individuals pursuant to their divorce. In Ohio, an order or agreement for spousal support can be permanent or temporary. Depending on many factors that relate to the capacities of the parties to earn incomes and support themselves, spousal support can last for varying durations of time and can be for very different sums of money.
