Is your spouse committing financial fraud?

As you face your impending Ohio divorce, you may have the uneasy feeling that your spouse is up to something. Specifically, you may suspect that (s)he is attempting to hide marital assets so as to obtain an advantage when it comes time to divide your marital property by way of a property settlement agreement.

Divorce could affect children’s college future

Whether parents are considering terminating their marriage or have already filed for divorce, they should think about several factors that must be finalized in the divorce settlement. Parents have a host of issues that must be resolved before signing the final agreement, including child custody, parenting plans and child support. Another thing experts recommend parents consider is how their child’s college future comes into play and how the divorce may affect their education and plans.

Is all property divisible in a divorce?

Going through a divorce is often difficult and may feel overwhelming. You may be faced with strong emotions, as well as the hard task of dividing up the property that was accumulated during the course of the marriage. Ohio is an equitable distribution of property state, meaning all marital property is divided in a fashion that is considered fair and equitable by a court-appointed judge. Although marital items, such as the family home, vehicle, furniture, assets and possessions may be split between you and your spouse, there are some items that may remain in the sole possession of the original owner.

Joint-custody may be better for children

One of the most difficult topics to tackle when going through a divorce is that of child custody. It is hard to help children understand why their family is separating and help them to recover from this extreme change of life. It is during this difficult and emotional time that parents must look at the important roles that both mothers and fathers have in children’s’ lives. While one parent may want to keep the child the majority of the time, he or she must consider the child’s best interests and how spending time with both parents is proven to be beneficial for children of all ages.

Same-sex parents still face challenges

The recognition of same-sex marriage across the country was a great step forward in civil rights for the LGBT community and their supporters. However, as you may not be surprised to hear, this legal move was not the end of family law issues for same-sex couples in Ohio and elsewhere.
