Can I Leave The Marital Residence?

Many people come in for their first consultation and one of the questions that they have is whether they can leave the marital residence. They want to know if it is OK to leave or if they are abandoning the house. Under Ohio law you do not lose any property interest in your home by moving out of it. The home remains a marital asset, which will be divided in the divorce.

Extending Child Support Beyond The Age Of Majority

Once upon a time, a child support order that was placed upon a non-residential parent was terminated upon that parent's child emancipating at age 18 or graduating from high school. Then in 1984, Castle v. Castle, 15 Ohio St. 3d 279 (1984), changed that when the Supreme Court of Ohio said that parents have a moral and legal obligation to their children beyond the age of majority for children who are unable to care for themselves due to mental or physical limitations. This case followed a trend amongst many states throughout the land and these became known as Castle children.

An OVI Motion To Suppress

Last week, in an OVI suppression hearing, a local judge ordered all evidence of our client's alcohol impairment, including her incriminating statements and failed field sobriety tests to be suppressed, effectively protecting her from prosecution as a multiple OVI offender, and 3rd OVI offender in 6 years. Prior to the successful suppression hearing, our client faced a mandatory minimum sixty days in jail and up to one year incarceration. She also faced a mandatory license suspension between two and ten years, forfeiture of her vehicle, and additional sanctions. After the suppression hearing the charges were dismissed.
