Special challenges for divorced parents of teens

When Ohio parents divorce, there will be many changes to come as they sort out their co-parenting responsibilities and joint plans for the future. Many divorcing spouses want to make the transition for their children as easy as possible, minimizing emotional damage. They may work to develop a child custody or visitation plan that honors the role of both parents in the child's life. However, there are some unique factors that come along with co-parenting teens. While teens are far more independent than younger children, they can be significantly affected by different issues after a parental divorce.

How to handle shared legal custody of your kids with your ex

Divorces bring with them a host of complications, and if you have children, even more so. They have a way of making your relationships with the people you care about the most, including your own children, much more difficult. Unless you and your ex manage to divorce relatively amicably, the courts will be the ones who decide how to split custody between the two of you.

Buying the family home during a divorce

The biggest asset on the table for many Ohio couples who are ending their marriage is the family home. A common option is for one spouse to buy out the other one. But before this happens, it's typically advised that they determine if this is financially feasible by treating the purchase as a new home buy instead of an ownership transfer.

Protecting a credit score during a divorce

Ohio couples know how stressful a divorce can be, especially when children are involved. Many life-changing decisions have to be made during a relatively short period of time. Typical issues to resolve include child custody, child support, alimony and the division of property. What some spouses may not realize, however, is that decisions made during a divorce can affect a credit score.

Child custody when there's no father's name on birth certificate

At one time, it was rare in Ohio and other states for a child to be born to an unwed mother. Today, however, this is an increasingly common situation. In fact, about 40 percent of children in the United States are born to parents who are not married, a jump of nearly 20 percent since 2007. With instances where a father isn't listed on the birth certificate, further legal questions arise.
