The alimony debate rages and it may continue in other states

States across the nation are considering changes to alimony laws as society begins to realize that the norm of a stay-at-home mom is fading. Though legal reform for alimony is not being spotlighted in Ohio now, it may be in the future. And this is due in part to the fact that, according to reports, the number of males and females in the workforce is about equal. This means that in some cases, spousal support may not be required for the length of time that some judges are suggesting: a lifetime.

Custody dispute ruling forces same-sex partner to move out

There are many roadblocks obstructing the married lives of same-sex couples across the country. Many in Columbus, Ohio, understand this and pay attention to the news reports involving complex family situations that contain same-sex issues. For instance, a recent ruling in Texas may cause a same-sex couple to break up, all because of a custody agreement and something called a "morality clause."

High Asset divorces may be inherently more contentious

Families in Delaware, Ohio, can quickly and dramatically become divided by divorce. It has happened to parents and children in the past and will continue to occur, with an increased likelihood for contention when a large amount of money is involved. That is what happened in the divorce of NASCAR CEO, Brian France. His High Asset divorce was kept under wraps for several years before an appeals court decided that the documents should be unsealed. That's why approximately 3,000 pages regarding the divorce were recently released.

Marriage of former Dayton mayor is officially dissolved

Divorce can affect nearly anyone in Ohio at any time. The reality of this is underscored by the finalization of the divorce between the former mayor of Dayton, Ohio, Mike Turner and his wife. According to a press release issued late last year, the former mayor and now congressman had separated from his wife and was moving to a condo that he would rent in downtown Dayton. The detailed nature of this release was interesting, as most high-profile individuals want to keep their relationships out of the potential spotlight.

Mother receives support then tries to deny custody

The complicated environment surrounding same-sex couples is in a state of flux. This is because of the legal changes that are being made. Even though it is still illegal in Ohio, many residents —particularly in Columbus — pay attention to how this legal shift is playing out. For instance, a recent ruling on a same-sex custody matter may have a lasting effect on other judicial decisions in the future.
