10 factors an Ohio court may look at when granting child custody

During divorce, one of the most important issues parents have questions about is how custody will be determined. Well, if parents are able to work together and reach an agreement regarding child custody, an Ohio court will typically approve it, so long as the custody arrangement is in the child’s best interests.

Important lessons for custody disputes

We know that divorce is not easy. And for those who are not married but dealing with child custody and parenting time issues, the legal process can be emotionally draining. Indeed, we all have our different coping mechanisms, but knowing how the law works (especially legal terms) can quell some of your fears.

Could a corporate forensic lab help in your defense?

When the state investigates someone and analyzes evidence in hopes of proving a crime, it will likely rely on results from a state-based crime lab. Given their capacities, some crime labs may have significant backlogs and other limitations that may delay the results of testing. Because of this, it may come as no surprise that more private crime labs are being established…by corporations.

Should you consult an attorney in an uncontested divorce

Many people considering divorce may be discouraged by how much they imagine they will have to pay in order get out of their marriage. Indeed, contested divorces, where both sides are entrenched in their respective positions, can obviously be costly. But for those who have few assets, there is a way for them to simply move on. The process for uncontested divorces is streamlined so that people can exercise their rights without too much difficulty.

Medical marijuana may be legal, but you can still lose your job

When Governor Kasich signed House Bill 523 last year, Ohio joined the many other states that have legalized the medical use of marijuana. While several agencies are still working on the implementation of this landmark legislation, there is one group that may be in for a surprise once doctors start prescribing medical marijuana ― namely, Ohio workers.

How to responsibly pay down debt

Some people who are dealing with debt problems cannot fathom the possibility of seeking bankruptcy protection. They may believe that bankruptcy is only for cheats, deadbeats and financial failures; and since they do not fit into those categories, bankruptcy is not an option. While this notion may be noble, it may lead to terrible financial decisions when it comes to paying down debts.
