There are many different issues that you and your spouse will be forced to negotiate and agree upon during a divorce settlement. While some may come to simple resolutions, others might require litigation and court hearings. Our attorneys are experienced in handling amicable collaborative divorce cases as well as litigating matters in front of a family court judge. We are prepared to help you with all of your legal needs. Our experienced divorce attorneys can help with the following common divorce-related issues:
Ohio divorces must follow the principle of equitable distribution, which means that all marital assets and debts must be split between spouses in an equitable fashion. This does not mean that the property must be split equally, however, and if certain circumstances exist, one spouse may be entitled to more of the marital estate than the other. The same applies to the allocation of marital debts, which can substantially affect your overall divorce settlement.
New changes to federal laws regarding the taxation of spousal support payments have significantly altered the once common acceptance of alimony payments from the higher earning spouse to the lesser earning spouse during and after a divorce. Ohio laws support multiple types of spousal support that apply for varying lengths of time and for different reasons. Our office can ensure that you are receiving the alimony you need or that you are not paying more than what is necessary in spousal support payments.
Often one of the most emotionally fraught decisions made during a divorce is where a child will live and which parent will have custody. Our office will fight for sole or joint custody of your child, and if you are deemed the non-custodial parent, we will zealously advocate for as much visitation time as possible with your child.
Child support is typically calculated by a list of factors found in Ohio statutory law, with the overall goal of maintaining the same quality of life for the child regardless of where the child is staying. Outside factors can influence the overall total of child support payments, and our experienced attorneys can ensure that you are receiving enough in child support or are not paying too much in child support after the divorce agreement is finalized.
