5814.09 Applicability and construction.

(A) Sections 5814.01 to 5814.09 of the Revised Code shall be construed to effectuate their general purpose to make uniform the law of those states that enact similar provisions.

(B) Sections 5814.01 to 5814.09 of the Revised Code shall not be construed as providing an exclusive method for making gifts or transfers to minors.

(C) Nothing in sections 5814.01 to 5814.09 of the Revised Code, shall affect gifts made under former sections 1339.19 to 1339.28 of the Revised Code, nor the powers, duties, and immunities conferred by gifts in such manner upon custodians and persons dealing with custodians. Sections 5814.01 to 5814.09 of the Revised Code henceforth apply, however, to all gifts made in a manner and form prescribed in former sections 1339.19 to 1339.28 of the Revised Code, except insofar as the application impairs constitutionally vested rights. Sections 5814.01 to 5814.09 of the Revised Code shall be construed as a continuation of the provisions of former sections 1339.19 to 1339.28 of the Revised Code, according to the language employed, and not as a new enactment.

(D) Nothing in sections 5814.01 to 5814.09 of the Revised Code, as of May 7, 1986, shall affect gifts made under those sections as they existed prior to May 7, 1986, or the powers, duties, and immunities conferred by the gifts in any manner upon custodians and persons dealing with custodians. Sections 5814.01 to 5814.09 of the Revised Code, as of May 7, 1986, hereafter apply to all gifts made in a manner and form prescribed in those sections as they existed prior to May 7, 1986, except to the extent that the application of those sections, as of May 7, 1986, would impair constitutionally vested rights.
