Common Issues in a Divorce

Before a divorce can be finalized in Ohio, there are many issues upon which spouses must agree. While these matters can be wide ranging, some issues arise more often than others. These matters include the following: 

  • Property Distribution: Ohio is an equitable distribution state, which means that spouses are required to divide their marital property equitably, but not necessarily equally, between them. The first step is identifying what is separate, commingled, and marital property. The second step is determining what is important to you and what portion of the property you deserve to walk away with.
  • Spousal Support: Another common issue is spousal support, also known as alimony. The purpose of alimony is to help a spouse with lesser earning capacity during and after the divorce while they become financially independent. Ohio provides for multiple types of spousal support, and one or more may be right in your case.
  • Child Custody: If there is a minor child or children involved in the divorce, child custody is another issue that must be determined before the divorce is finalized. The court in Ohio presumes that it is in the child’s best interest for both parents to be a part of their life unless evidence proves otherwise. Physical and legal custody as well as sole or joint custody must be determined between the parents or by the court.
  • Child Support: Related to child custody is the determination of child support. Ohio law provides guidelines to help determine the proper amount of support in each case, but there are many factors that can alter the outcome of how much and to what extent each parent owes in support to maintain the quality of life for their child.

How to Manage Divorce Proceedings

Another major issue that must be determined in each divorce case is how you wish to handle the proceedings. One option is to traditionally litigate the case in the courts, but this can be a lengthy and expensive option. If both spouses are open to it, divorce mediation may be another way to settle the issues that must be finalized in a divorce. Collaborative divorce is a third option, and our office can help determine which is best for you.
