Courtroom

Make it your New Year's resolution to establish or modify your estate planning.

Do you need a Last Will & Testament or a Durable Power of Attorney?

If you have those documents, have you reviewed them lately? Are the persons you nominated in those documents correct and in the correct order? Are any modifications required?

Have you reviewed the beneficiary designations identified for your various assets?

Did you know that you can file with the County Recorder an affidavit for the transfer of your real estate after your death to those who may survive you without having to administer your real estate through the Probate Court?

Do you need a Living Trust? Do you know why a Living Trust is needed, or why it would be beneficial to your estate planning?

New Years Resolution

We are often asked by clients at what age can a child determine which parent shall be the custodial parent in a child custody dispute.

There is a misconception that once a child becomes a certain age (for example, 14 years old or some similar age), the child can unilaterally decide the parent with whom he or she shall primarily reside. This is not the case.

Ohio law provides that the wishes of the child are to be considered by the court when deciding which parent shall have custody of the child, however, the child's wishes are not determinative. There are approximately ten (10) different factors that a court must consider by Ohio law in determining which parent shall be the custodial parent, including the wishes of the child.

Essentially, a child cannot make decisions solely for himself or herself until they attain the age of 18 years old when the child becomes an adult by law.

Child Custody B

Many persons consider their house to be their asset with the most value. However, a lot of times after consideration and an analysis is conducted, the most valuable asset may be the pensions and retirement plans. Pensions and retirement plans can be allocated between spouse who are divorcing, and should be given careful consideration. Your attorney can provide you with expert advice regarding allocating these types of assets in a divorce.

If you should have questions about allocating pensions and retirement plans in a divorce, please contact us. Provided by Bailey & Gunderson Co., L.P.A., Attorneys at Law, with offices in Norwood and Western Hills. 513-631-0022.
