What happens if you both want the house in an Ohio divorce?

When you bought your home with your spouse, you probably never thought about what would happen in the event of a divorce. Most couples picture themselves living out their lives together in the same home or at least moving together to the next place when the time is right. People don't generally buy a home with someone they don't picture a future with.

Going through a divorce without feeling like a loser

During a divorce, an Ohio couple may find themselves completely at odds when it comes to reaching a settlement. This can be especially true if the divorce is not amicable. Ultimately, most former couples walk away thinking that their ex-spouse "won," even though this generally is not the case.

Delayed marriage and student debt driving prenuptial agreements

Prenuptial agreements have become a much more common part of wedding planning in Ohio than they used to be. A survey of attorneys conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that over half of respondents had experienced an increase in requests for prenuptial agreements. The past 20 years have overseen a quintupling of prenuptial agreements, and younger people in the 18-to-34 age range are seeking contracts prior to marriage in increasing numbers. Their tendency to get married later in life than previous generations and student loan debt have created valid reasons for establishing the terms of a divorce should one occur.

Child support, financial woes and parental disputes

Ohio parents who need to negotiate or dispute child support issues might wonder about the long-term effects of their decisions. Breaking up often inspires very passionate feelings. When decisions are made based on those emotions, they can also affect finances, including the financial well-being of their own children. Therefore, parents are advised to act in the best interests of their kids, even when they struggle to get along with their exes.

Protecting a business before divorce happens

When Ohio entrepreneurs get together to form a business, they may not be thinking about one another's personal lives, but doing so may be necessary to protect the company. If one business partner gets a divorce, the company could come into play during the property division stage of the proceedings.

Ohio family courts usually prefer shared custody arrangements

Getting divorced is a time in your life that can cause a lot of stress and uncertainty. After all, unless you agree on the terms of your divorce with your ex or have an ironclad prenuptial agreement, everything from when you see your children to who stays in the house is up in the air. You shouldn't let that uncertainty or fear about the outcome keep you from seeking a fresh start.

Co-parenting successfully after a divorce

When people in Ohio decide to divorce, they may be more than ready to leave their unhappy marriage behind. At the same time, they may be concerned about the divorce's effect on the parent-child relationship. Co-parenting can be a challenge, even for couples who were able to reach an amicable split. There can be a number of problems that arise, from discomfort at one parent's new relationships to dealing with clashes over parenting decisions as the child grows.
