The process of appealing a custody ruling

State law in Ohio and throughout the nation seeks to protect the best interests of a child above the interests of a parent. However, it is possible for a parent to appeal a child custody ruling if there is reason to believe that it was flawed in some way. Generally speaking, only final and complete orders are subject to appeal. This means that there has been a hearing on the matter and that all pending issues have been resolved.

Property division in a high-asset divorce

When couples are going through a divorce, one thing that they usually have to confront is the division of their marital property. If they are unable to reach an agreement on their own, a judge will make the decision. In an equitable distribution state like Ohio, the court will issue an order based upon what it believes to be fair, and that doesn't necessarily mean equal.

A child-centered custody option

As you and your spouse get divorced, there is one thing that both of you agree on: You want to focus on the children. You want to put them first. You want to make child-centered decisions and give them the best possible life.

Abusers are often favored in child custody cases

Most mothers in Ohio who are going through a divorce assume that if their children are being abused by their husbands, they will be given custody. However, new research has shown that it is not always, or even often, the case. A new study that examined more than 2000 child custody cases showed that fathers are given equal or greater parenting time, even when abuse is alleged or proven.

Want to raise happier kids? Work together after divorce

Like most parents, Ohio parents who split up want to still raise emotionally healthy, stable, happy kids. Working together in all aspects of the children's lives and respecting, encouraging and supporting the relationship each child has with their other parent is the road to success in this journey.
