Family law disputes can spread onto the gridiron

We have written before about the broad scope of issues family law can deal with. We offered a rundown of a few of them in one recent post. Since then, a story has made headlines that serves to reinforce the point we sought to make. And so, we are taking this post to dig into that a little.

The scope of subjects under family law might surprise you

When a couple marries, they probably don't think about speaking with an attorney first. Yes, every state has laws governing the process, but it's more of an administrative issue than anything else. In Ohio, the rule in most cases is that you must go to the local probate court and apply.

What can invalidate a premarital agreement?

We have written a number of posts recently on prenuptial agreements and the necessary elements that they need to have to be executed successfully. What this post will aim to provide is some insight into the various issues that can result in a prenuptial agreement being declared invalid later in court.

How to talk about prenups

If you are an entrepreneur who is planning to get married, a prenuptial agreement can be a lifesaver if the marriage breaks down later. After all, in many instances, businesses can become marital assets that are subject to division between the spouses.

The emotional and psychological benefits of co-parenting

The end of a marriage is difficult, but it can be especially difficult for the youngest members of the family. In order to protect their children, Ohio parents may explore the various ways that they can seek a child custody agreement that is both beneficial and sustainable. In many cases, a co-parenting plan can provide stability and continuity of lifestyle for both the parents and the children.

Should you keep the family home after divorce?

When going through a divorce, you may have many aspects that need consideration. Interests often arise when it comes to dividing property. Because Ohio is an equitable distribution state, the division of assets does not necessarily mean that you and your ex-spouse will walk away with an equal share. As a result, you may find yourself concerned with the division of particular pieces of property, such as the family home.

Please disconnect all devices: plug in to family time

Information is highly accessible in this digital age, but at what price? It is easy to answer just one more email, post one more Facebook update, or defeat one more level of Candy Crush Saga. Parents and children alike are sucked into the vortex of smartphones and tablets to the detriment of the whole family.
