Understanding benefits eligibility after a military divorce

When you enter into an Ohio marriage with someone who is a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, you typically gain access to certain benefits reserved for military personnel and their families. For example, you have probably grown used to shopping for groceries and supplies at military commissaries, where your purchases are tax-free and discounted, and you likely also utilize TRICARE, which provides health care coverage for military families. At the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC, we understand that many people divorcing military spouses have questions about benefit eligibility following divorce, and we have helped many such clients answer these and related queries.

Are you married even though you had no wedding?

As you probably know, Ohio requires you and your spouse to divide your marital property fairly and equitably when you divorce. But if the two of you have lived together for many years without benefit of marriage, must you still obtain an actual divorce and split your property fairly and equitably? The answer is, “it depends.”

Tips on protecting your business during a divorce

If you own a business in Ohio, you naturally want to protect it from all types of risks. Divorce is just one potential risk facing entrepreneurs, who could lose control of their enterprise if the proper measures aren’t taken. The financial loss can also be great, in addition to setting back all the hard work it took to make your business a success. The first step in protecting your interests is to create a prenuptial agreement before you get married.

Why are more grandparents raising their grandchildren?

As we have discussed in other posts on this blog, grandparents who raise their grandchildren face numerous unique challenges, ranging from the physical to the emotional. If you are one of the many Ohio grandparents with renewed parenting responsibilities, you know that your work is cut out for you. The years to come may be challenging, frustrating and discouraging, but they can also be rewarding if you have the right support system and assistance.

Maintaining Tricare coverage following your divorce

As a military spouse, you know firsthand of the stress that comes with frequent relocations, deployments and others issues that your spouse's affiliation forces your family to deal with. The benefits provided by the military help to ease some of that burden. Now, as you prepare for your divorce, you may be rightly concerned about how such an action will impact yours and your children's eligibility for such benefits. One of the main advantages offered to military families (and one of the most difficult to quickly replace) is insurance coverage through Tricare. The potential for continued access to such coverage is often the first question many in your same position ask when they come to us here at The Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC. 

Escaping domestic violence can be complicated

At the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell, LLC, we understand that it can be difficult for anyone to file for divorce, regardless of the circumstances. For Ohio residents who are trapped in abusive marriages, their situations may seem hopeless. You should understand that although it may be hard to leave your abuser, it is possible with the right support system and an escape plan.
