When going through a divorce, entrepreneurs and business owners in Ohio have it doubly hard: On the one hand, they have to deal with the reality of walking away from someone they believed they'd spend the rest of their lives with. On the other hand, they have to contend with dividing up their assets, in particular their business, which may be the largest asset on the table. Consequently, it is imperative that both parties be made aware of the value of the business to ensure that everyone gets their due.
There are a number of persistent myths about family law that the Ohio Bar Association has addressed in articles published for consumers and attorneys.

(Adultery might well lead to a divorce, but it is not the determining factor in disputes over child custody or the distribution of assets.)
Parenting your child is hard enough when you are divorced, but with an ex-spouse who's several hours away, the distance makes custody arrangements complicated. Your child has to go to one school, needs to be in one place long enough to do homework and activities, and needs a sense of routine. You also realize that your child needs his other parent. What can you do to make this work?
