How personality traits can raise divorce risk

Certain personality traits may increase the likelihood that an Ohio resident might get a divorce. One of those traits is a tendency to catastrophize. People who do so tend to blow up small incidents into large ones. Some attorneys actually report clients who file for divorce multiple times and then each time realize they are overreacting.

Reacting to a child's request to live with the other parent

There is a chance that a child in Ohio will want to live with a noncustodial parent. Ideally, custodial parents will not take this personally and engage in a discussion about the topic. In some cases, it could be acceptable to allow the noncustodial parent to be a part of the conversation. However, if a change in residence is not in the child's best interest, a judge is unlikely to approve such a request regardless of how the child and parents feel.

Millennials' shifting views on marriage and divorce

Millennials in Ohio and across the country have grown up in a different reality than their parents and grandparents. Both men and women have the opportunity to attain financial independence, and this has influenced the way that millennials view marriage, divorce and prenuptial agreements.

Financial issues in a divorce

When Ohio couples get a divorce, they should take a number of financial considerations into account. For example, the couple may have a home they want to sell. However, they may need to decide how they will pay expenses associated with it and how they will split the proceeds when it sells.

Child custody may be determined by multiple factors

When parents in Ohio or anywhere else end their marriages, a judge will need to decide who gets custody of the children. As a general rule, a court will make a custody decision based on what is in a child's best interests. However, there are many factors that could be used to determine what that would be in a given case. Typically, the age of the child will influence the terms of a custody ruling.
