    Default Getting Relief from a Contempt Order

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: Ohio

    If an out of state respondent fails to appear in a contempt of court case on a shared parenting plan and files an untimely motion for continuance, citing service was not perfected eventhough the judge considered service requirements met, can respondent still receive relieve by motioning the court to vacate judgment?

    The summons was sent to a PO BOX out of state that the respondent has listed with the court as her contact information, however the affidavit was sent to her home address also out of state, which she never updated with the court per guidelines of the shared parenting agreement.

    You mean, can the respondent appeal the judge's ruling and, if the evidence supports the appeal, potentially have the judge's ruling reversed on appeal? Yes, that's possible. Whether an appeal will succeed turns on the specific facts of a case.
