In an Ohio divorce, what happens to marital property?

The end of a marriage will signal many significant changes in the lives of an Ohio couple. If you are about to file your divorce petition or you already initiated this process, your priority will likely be to secure a final order that allows you to have stability and security well into the future. This includes a fair division of marital property and debt.

When is it possible to choose an uncontested divorce?

For some Ohio couples, the choice to divorce does not come easy. For other couples, both parties may agree that divorce is necessary, but they may not be able to agree on the terms of the agreement. And sometimes, there are couples that choose to end their marriages and already agree on what their divorce should look like. In these cases, a dissolution of marriage or uncontested divorce is an option.

What are the penalties for late or missing support payments?

When a child support payment is late, it's known as a delinquent payment. A delinquent payment can be extremely hard for the recipient to deal with. They may rely on the payment to buy their child clothing or school lunches. Being late isn't an option.

Joint credit cards and divorce

If you and your spouse have decided to divorce, you may hope this will release you from many of the conflicts that persisted throughout your marriage. Among those may be the financial issues that added stress to an already fragile relationship. However, if your money problems included credit card debt, it is not likely you will walk away from the marriage without taking your share of the debt.
