Is all property divisible in a divorce?

If you file for legal separation or divorce in Ohio, you and your spouse have a host of factors to discuss when creating a divorce settlement. One of the common issues you may come up against is that of property division. It can be extremely difficult for couples to separate all of the items they accumulated during the course of the marriage. Property that is eligible for division, otherwise known as marital property, includes items such as gifts given to one another during the marriage, expensive antique collections, tax refunds, former employer benefits, copyright royalties, stocks, 401K plans and many more. However, not all items are able to be divided in the divorce settlement.

Using the right techniques to tell children about divorce

For divorcing couples in Ohio, the important decisions to be made regarding their future may seem to be coming endlessly and at lightning speed. For couples who have had children together, this could be even more the case as they negotiate child custody and try to help their children understand why they have made the decision to separate. Because every child is different, some couples may find they have to approach the topic of divorce differently with each child and in a way that is complementary to his or her age and comprehension.

Who gets an LLC in a divorce?

In Ohio divorces, courts divide shared assets equally between the two former spouses. This means that nearly anything, from your bank accounts to your home, might be subject to division. While this process might be relatively straightforward when it comes to a simple asset, such as a joint savings account you and your spouse might hold, it tends to become complicated very quickly with mixed assets, business holdings or high-asset situations. 

Is there bias in custody cases?

As you head to an Ohio court for your divorce case, you may be worried about how custody will be handled. This is often a very emotional part of the proceedings for most people. There are a lot of things that are said about custody hearings. One is that the courts always side with the mother, granting her custody and slamming the father with huge child support payments. However, this bias is not really seen anymore. Instead, the courts have a new agenda when determining child custody cases.

What can affect alimony payments?
