Legal Answers
18 Questions Answered
Q. Does the custodial parent have the right to refuse to honor shared parenting agreement?
A: No. Your ex is obligated to follow the terms of the Shared Parenting Plan provided that Shared Parenting Plan was signed by all parties and adopted as an Order of the Court. If your ex is withholding parenting time to which you are entitled or otherwise violating the Shared Parenting Plan, then your remedy is to file a Motion to Show Cause with the court and ask the court for your ex to show cause for why they should not be held in contempt for their failure to abide by the terms.
Q. Can the mother of my child change my child’s last name without my consent in Lucas County Ohio?
A: It is up to the Court. Paternity has been established. If Mom wants to change your child's last name, then you are entitled to notice of the proceedings, and you can present your case as to why it would not be best for the child's last name to be changed.
Q. I’m filing to switch custody of my nephew from maternal aunt to myself, paternal aunt.
A: If you an maternal aunt are in agreement, then you can likely draft an Agreed Judgment Entry asking the Court to adopt whatever custody plan that you come up with. So, if you and maternal aunt can negotiate an agreement outside of Court and write it, then you can file that with the Court with an Agreed Judgment Entry (document telling the Court that these parties are in agreement) so long as paternal aunt is already a party to the case.
