Common Law Marriage In Ohio

Recommended Posts

My husband and I signed a Common law affidavit on 10/03/87. However around 5 years ago we lost that affidavit. I want the courts to recognize our marriage as a legal marriage. I know common law is no longer in Ohio as of 10/10/91 but if you were common law prior to that you can not get a marriage license. How can I get in front of a judge w/out an attorney so a judge can say yes you are or no you are not so I can have legal documentation either way?

In what context?  That you've posted this on a message board about criminal law suggests you may be concerned about some sort of marital privilege issue.

Well...sure, but you don't need one.

Unless there is a dispute between you and your husband about the validity of your marriage, you probably can't.  Why do you want a judge to do this?
