Essentially there are five types of alimony / spousal support:

  • Temporary alimony: is typically in cases of short marriage duration where a spouse has a demonstrated need and the other an ability and it is designed to assist the lower income earning spouse pending the resolution of the divorce lawsuit

  • Lump sum alimony: is a one time payment of a set amount.  It is applicable in a marriage which is not too short but not too long in duration

  • Rehabilitative alimony: is typically alimony designed to assist the lower income earning spouse as he or she travels through their rehabilitative plan, the plan being a formulation of strategies and goals to increase one's earning ability

  • Permanent alimony: is in marriages of long duration, typically over 15 years and typically does not end until the payee spouse dies, remarries or is in a supportive relationship by law

  • Bridge-the-gap: is a type of alimony which is of a short duration typically to assist the lower income earning spouse into his or her post divorce earnings.

Courts generally also consider the contribution of each of the parties in the acquisition, preservation or appreciation in value of their respective estates and the contribution of each of the parties as a homemaker to the family unit. alimony (spousal support) can continue indefinitely, until death or remarriage, or can be set for a fixed period of time.

The State of Cannabis Laws for the Toledo Resident

The Toledo cannabis consumer must be aware of the laws; Federal, State, and Local.

After Toledo Residents voted to lower the cannabis possession penalty to the City’s lowest penalty, there has been much confusion as to the state of the law.  In reality, the cannabis consumer/possessor must be concerned with Federal, State, and Local law.

Under Federal Law, a consumer/possessor can be charged under strict, outdated laws.  The CSA carries a penalty of $1000 fine and 1 year in prison.  To be charged under Federal law would be rare, however, it is possible.

Ohio’s cannabis law has been somewhat decriminalized.  However, possession up to 100 grams still tarnishes an offender’s record, although it’s only a minor misdemeanor, or a civil citation.  Chances are any illegal cannabis possession will be charged under Ohio Law.  Also, paraphernalia is a 4th degree misdemeanor carrying a maximum penalty of 30 days in jail and $250 fine.

In terms of the Toledo City Law, the passed Ordinance would still be the best.  In terms of being charged under the City Code, the best chance of this happens when being pulled over by friendly local police officers.  This does not mean, that if stopped in the City of Toledo you could not be charged under the state’s more restrictive statute.

In reality, the State law would and could take precedence if either the police or prosecution want to strictly enforce it.

In conclusion, a cannabis consumer/possessor is still subjected to the strict CSA, in any part of the country.  However, with local law and state law more often applied, chances are that a charge would be brought under them.  Therefore, in Ohio, up to 100 grams (3oz.) are considered “personal” will get you a court date and record, and fines, but no jail time.
