Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Was the father supporting the child during the separation?

no

I just wanted to know if Ohio makes the father pay from the date the wife/mother moves out (her choice) from that date or5 some other date?

Thank you for that additional information. Please give me a few minutes while I type a response. I am still here with you, but it does take a bit of time to type a complete response.

not sure by this question above if you are wanting a response, or if you are still typing?

Yes, my apologies. My internet went out and I just got it back.

It would start on the date of the filing divorce, not separation, in Ohio. See the case of Trump v. Trump (http://caselaw.findlaw.com/oh-court-of-appeals/1164987.html). It only relates back to date of separation if paternity is an actual issue there.

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear, but it is the law. I hope that clears things up anyway. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable.

Please note that I don't get any credit for the time and effort that I spent on this answer unless and until you rate it positively (3 or more stars). Look for the stars on your screen (★★★★★). You may need to scroll left/right/up/down to see these stars, but note that the rating is what closes out this question, so it is necessary that you do so.

Thank you, ***** ***** luck to you!
