Publication Postings for Case Related Matters

Service by Publication

Civil Rule 4.4(A)(2) allows in case types of Divorce, Annulment; or Legal Separation Actions… and all post-decree proceedings and if the matter is not governed by Civ. R. 65.1, if the party is proceeding with a poverty affidavit, if the residence of the defendant is unknown, service by publication shall be made by posting and mail.

Alternatively, the postings may be made on the website of the Clerk of Courts, if available, in a section designated for such purpose. These notices shall contain the same information required by division (A)(1) of this rule to be contained in a newspaper publication. The notice shall be posted in the required locations for six successive weeks.

Tax Foreclosure Legal Descriptions

Section 5721.18 of the Ohio Revised Code requires the Clerk of Courts to cause a notice of Foreclosure to be published once a week for three consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the county.

The Prosecuting Attorney has determined that publishing the complete legal description of the parcel(s) in the newspaper is unnecessary to provide the interested parties with reasonable notice of the tax foreclosure proceeding. The published notice identifies the parcel number of the property involved and indicates where the complete legal description may be obtained.

Below are tax foreclosure cases, identified by case number, recently published in the newspaper of general circulation. Click on the appropriate case number to view the complete legal description of the parcel(s) involved in that case.

The legal descriptions will be posted for a period of three weeks as required by the Ohio Revised Code.

You may view the entire document in the Wood County Clerk of Courts’ Office.
