In Ohio could i pay and take a polygraph test prior to a civil case to prove my inocence on the allegations made against me

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Nothing has been filed.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I’ve got a former employee who is claiming sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, wrongful termination and breach of contract

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

Unfortunately, you cannot do that. You have to go through the proceedings and comply with any Court Order in the case. You cannot proactively give yourself a polygraph test to prove your " innocence." Also, you cannot chose your own polygraph company to administer the test because that calls into question validity of the test administered to you.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
