Insurance revenge can cost divorced spouses immensely

Former spouses in Columbus, Ohio, can become quite irate with one another during a separation and divorce. Though this is not always the case, disagreements can boil over into court proceedings, which may tempt one spouse to hurt the other. The target may be bank accounts, assets or the children. Regardless of which target is selected, the attempt -- whether successful or otherwise -- may provoke an ex-husband or ex-wife to seek vengeance for the things they lost in the divorce. One such way for them to do this is through insurance plans that were once provided for the entire family.

Prenuptial agreements can affect wealth and debt

Couples in Columbus, Ohio, that are planning to get married should consider creating a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot. Especially for those with a large amount of wealth or debt, a prenuptial agreement can mean the difference between financial stability and ruin after a divorce occurs, depending on the outcome.

Could a child's weight affect parental custody?

A boy has been taken from his family somewhere in Ohio. It isn't a case of kidnapping, but of Child and Family Services -- the state's child protection program -- stepping in. The 8-year-old child was taken away from his mother because of health concerns that were not changing while the agency worked with the family. Though the third grader weighs 200 pounds, a spokesperson with Child and Family Services has stated that other health concerns made worse by the boy's weight are their main worry.

Differing laws create confusion over same-sex divorce, custody

Same-sex marriage is now legal in six states and the District of Columbia. Ohio is not one of those states, which can create situations for local same-sex couples that are difficult to deal with, largely in the legal realm. Sometimes, a child custody agreement can even become torn apart by the fact that the legal parents of a child are of the same sex.
