Legal Answers
167 Questions Answered
Q. In Ohio can someone reduce the amount they are to inherit to give more to the other heirs or do you have to do per will.
A: A person receiving money in an inheritance can do whatever they want with it. They can waive some of their inheritance if they wish, but the easier thing to do would be to just transfer some of their inherited funds to the parties who did not receive anything.
Q. Where can I find a separation agreement that says I want a dissolution of marriage?
A: It does not need to say it's for a dissolution. In either a divorce or dissolution by agreement the separation agreement is only a part of the total judgment that divides assets and debts between the parties.
Q. Dividing marital assets-does using dividend checks jointly make the principal amount on an inheritance community prop.?
A: It is highly unlikely that would be considered marital property.
