Prenuptial agreements, also known as premarital agreements, establish property interests for each spouse prior to the marriage. There are many benefits to creating a prenuptial agreement, and a lawyer can ensure that yours is drafting properly according to Ohio law.
Ending a marriage is a difficult and complicated matter, which is either filed as a dissolution of marriage or divorce petition depending on the facts of the case. There are many matters that must be resolved before a divorce or dissolution is finalized that necessitates a qualified attorney by your side.
Whenever there is a child under 18 years old in the household, child custody and support must be determined in a divorce case. Custody can be joint or sole, with legal and physical custody decided by what is in the best interests of the child. Based on the custody agreement, child support is calculated to maintain their standard of living and cover the child’s living expenses.
Known as alimony in other states, spousal support assists a spouse that has a lesser income during and after divorce proceedings while they adjust to financial independence. Spousal support can be temporary or permanent and varies in length and duration based on a variety of factors specific to the marriage.
As an equitable distribution state, Ohio law requires that spouses share all marital property equitably, but not necessarily equally. An attorney can help identify what is considered separate, commingled, and marital property as well as determine whether any details specific to the case merit a different distribution of assets or debts in the property distribution, such as grounds of adultery.
