Spousal and Child Support
- Spousal support is money paid by one spouse to the other.
- Depending on the length of your marriage and various other factors set forth in R.C. 3105.18(C), you may be required to pay spousal support. Your income is necessary to determine whether you (or your spouse) are able to support yourself and/or whether you are entitled to spousal support.
- Spousal support may be modified, but if and only if the Court retains jurisdiction to modify it.
- If the Court has retained jurisdiction, then a motion requesting a modification of spousal support must be filed in order to be considered by the Court. R.C. 3105.18 sets forth the requirements for spousal support modification.
- When there is a change of custody;
- When the child reaches the age of 19;
- If the child enlists in the armed services; or,
- If the child fails to attend an accredited high school on a full time basis.
- A request to modify child support may be made at any time.
- The request may be made either at the Medina County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) or at the Court.
