Common household objects may present an unforeseen child hazard

You may remember the tragic story recently that involved a toddler at a Payless shoe store, who was killed when a wall mirror fell on top of her. At the law offices of Lopez, Severt & Pratt Co., L.P.A., we are dismayed to admit that unsecured, heavy objects found in homes, daycares, schools and stores present more dangers than you and other Ohio parents may realize.

Sealing your criminal record in Ohio

If you live in Ohio and have a conviction for a crime on your record, you may find that it impacts your ability to find work or obtain affordable housing, among other possible repercussions. In some cases, depending on your criminal history and the specific details surrounding your crime and conviction, you may be able to attempt to have your record sealed. At Lopez, Severt & Pratt Co., L.P.A., we understand the eligibility requirements associated with criminal record sealing in Ohio, and we have helped many offenders who have since turned their lives around break down the barriers a criminal record can present.

Do I have any say in how my ex spends child support?

As a noncustodial parent who pays child support, you most likely have an interest in how the money you give your ex-spouse is used. As you know, child support is for the benefit of your children. You might have doubts and concerns about how your ex spends the money. Like many Ohio parents who pay child support, you may wonder if you can check up on your ex’s spending or tell him or her how you want the money spent.
