A conviction for OVI can seriously disrupt your future plans

You probably depend on your car or truck in more ways than one, and cannot imagine life without it. You may drive a commercial vehicle for a living, for example, or you may be a college student or businessperson who commutes daily.

Undoubtedly you have plans for the coming years. However, if you receive a conviction for operating a vehicle under the influence in the state of Ohio, you could be putting your future in jeopardy.

HOW MUCH DOES A DIVORCE COST IN OHIO?

I have handled at least 2,000 divorce related matters in my career, and one of the first things that my clients want to know is how much their divorce is going to cost them. I always answer their questions in a similar fashion because asking about the total cost of a divorce is like asking how much it will cost to raise children, or how much it will cost to buy and maintain a house. There is no set answer to these questions because many different things can affect the total cost.

FEDERAL JUDGE RULES OHIO MUST RECOGNIZE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE FROM MARYLAND

In July, an Ohio couple traveled to Maryland to get married. It was not a fancy wedding; in fact, the ceremony took place on a plane on the tarmac of a Baltimore airport. By the time the two were married, they had been together for over 20 years. One spouse has a terminal illness and does not want to be listed as single on his death certificate. In addition, the two want to be buried in the same family plot, which is only available for direct descendants and spouses. Because the couple is a same-sex couple, they are not able to get married in their home state of Ohio.

"SUZE ORMAN" ONLINE WILL FORM - BEWARE.

Not too long ago I was presented with a Last Will and Testament prepared by a recently deceased woman, by herself, from an online source. The form allegedly came from a "Suze Orman" website. Well, there are problems. I suspect the individual presumed it was a reputable site and the forms could be trusted. Bad presumption.

NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR ALIMONY MODIFICATION IN OHIO

The Ohio Revised Code sets out the factors that the courts consider when awarding alimony in a divorce case. These considerations include income, earning ability, age, length of marriage, standard of living and the parties' education. This list gives a person an idea of what the court is going to look at, in general, to determine what is a reasonable amount of alimony. Unfortunately, the Code is not so clear on what happens when a person's circumstances change after the award is entered.
