The older you are, the more likely you'll get an Ohio divorce

A Columbus parent or child may feel there is an enormous difference of opinion between generations. They might be right when it comes to marriage, according to recent studies. Researchers say younger couples are staying married while their older counterparts are filing for divorce at a record pace.

The dangers of letting your spouse take care of the money

The longer a couple has been together, the more likely they are to deal with a large amount of property in the event of divorce. As the couple ages together, the woman is also more likely to be involved in financial planning. A number of former spouses in Columbus, Ohio, are prime examples for the possible consequences one might face during and after a split if finances are like a foreign language. Without the experience of paying the bills and looking at bank statements, a divorced individual is not only left ill-equipped in life skills, but she or he may also have been cut short on the divorce settlement.

Same-sex child custody matters are delicate

The difficulties that same-sex couples face in order to get married are well-known throughout the state of Ohio. But what about the difficulties that such couples face when trying to divorce? Ending a marriage can be just as hard as making it happen and because of the legal hurdles that one must face within this state when attempting a same-sex split, the process can be much more costly in both money and time. Think about the standard factors present in a divorce: property division, alimony, child custody and child support, along with the actual dissolution of the marriage. Now, add in the legal issues stacked against same-sex couples, and the expectations of a same-sex divorce should be understood.

See a divorce in your future? Time to get prepared

While some divorces blindside a spouse, it is not always the case. If you can see that a divorce is on the horizon, you should prepare for it. It's like an oncoming storm that you should hunker down for, getting all the essentials in order to make sure that you can coast through it without worrying about a surprise around every corner. One of the first things that a spouse in Columbus, Ohio, should do to prepare for a divorce is consider the level of dependency that is apparent in the marriage. If you are completely dependent on your spouse for income, you may want to work toward getting a job as soon as possible.
