Issues Accompanying Divorce
In order to finalize your divorce, you will have to resolve many related issues with your spouse, such as child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and division of marital property. Under Ohio law, a divorce may be granted on many grounds, including incompatibility, living separate and apart for one year, either spouse already had a living spouse at the time of the marriage, adultery, extreme cruelty, gross neglect of duty, habitual drunkenness, imprisonment in a state or federal prison, or fraudulent contract.
Ohio is an equitable distribution state, meaning that the division of marital property and debts will be divided as equitably and fairly as possible. The courts consider a number of factors in determining how marital property is divided, including how long the marriage lasted, the assets and liabilities involved, who will have custody of any children and their rights to the family home while raising those children, tax consequences, and all other factors relevant to the property and assets at hand. The courts will also decide whether spousal support will be awarded to either party along with the duration and amount of support payments to be made.
