Appealing Your Ohio Family Law Judgment Entry

Okay, let’s say you have already objected to your Magistrate’s Decision, (or, if you never received a Magistrate’s Decision, just a Judgment Entry), and you want to appeal.  The first question you will ask yourself is “How long do I have to file an appeal in Ohio?”  According to Ohio Rule of Appellate Procedure (4)(A)(1), you have 30 days from the date of the Entry.  If you do not have an attorney, or you are considering using a different attorney for your appeal, you do not have a lot of time to interview and hire the attorney you want.  Do NOT wait until the last second.  Start looking right away, because it may take you awhile to find the attorney that is the right fit.

At the Law Offices of Virginia C. Cornwell we represent clients Appeals from final, appealable orders in family law matters such as child support, custody, visitation, divorce, post-decree modifications, spousal support, and more.  We understand that the client may have received a disappointing or even devastating decision, and we do whatever we can to help the client turn things around.  We meet with the client and give them our opinion, as best we can from the Decision or Entry, so that the client may make an informed decision about whether they want to go forward with an Appeal.

If you have a family law appeal and want to talk to an attorney about your case, call our office at 614-225-9316 for a free consultation.

The Ohio LGBT community’s new right to marry also means the right to step-parent adoption

GAY ADOPTION LAWYER, COLUMBUS LESBIAN ADOPTION LAWYER, COLUMBUS LGBT ADOPTION LAWYERVirginia Cornwell is an Ohio State Bar Association Certified Family Relations Specialist Attorney who works with the LGBT community.

Many LGBT Ohioans will be celebrating the recent U.S. Supreme Court Decision Obergefell, et al. v. Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health, et al. and racing to the courthouse to get their marriage license and say “I do.”

However, the marriage of two partners may not change their family dynamic as completely as they hoped it would.  If the partners are co-parenting children together, assuming one of the parents is a biological parent, then after the marriage ceremony the children have a new step-parent.  Step-parent may not be the dynamic that the parties have in mind.  They may want something more permanent, like step-parent adoption.

Step-parent adoption is not right for everyone.  It will terminate the parental rights of the biological parent that is not part of the marriage.  That may be undesirable for some.  There are certain circumstances where the parental rights of the person who is not part of the marriage can be terminated against their will.  To learn whether step-parent adoption is right for your family, call the Law Offices of Virginia C. Cornwell to schedule a consultation.
