Ohio has 88 counties. It also has as many different sets of domestic relations divorce and dissolution forms but currently no standardized forms across the state -- but that's soon going to change.
The Ohio Supreme Court announced Tuesday that a subcommittee of its Advisory Committee on Children, Families & the Courts, has developed a set of forms which have now been published for perusal & public comment.
All domestic relations courts in Ohio would accept the new standardized forms, as well as their own local forms, according to the Court's announcement. It was also noted that the new forms provide domestic relation courts with information such about party income and expenses, assets, debts, the availability of health insurance, and other information judges consider in their cases everyday.
Comments on the proposed forms can be submitted in writing to: John VanNorman, Policy and Research Counsel, Supreme Court of Ohio, 65 S. Front St., Seventh Floor, Columbus, OH 43215, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments will be accepted until Feb. 16, 2010.
