State laws may impact Ohio couples seeking divorce

Ending a marriage is never an easy situation, regardless if the separation is amicable or not. Most endeavor to find and marry their true love, but many times "real" life can get in the way and cause partners to consider divorce. Most believe that divorce laws are constant throughout the country, but many Ohio readers may be interested in the fact that laws can vary widely based upon the state in which a divorce is filed.

Safe child custody exchange sites may help Ohio couples

In Ohio and across the country, police departments and other organizations are creating safe zones, which provide a monitored meeting area for parents and children who are involved in difficult divorce situations. These areas create a safe place for parents and children to conduct visits or as a place where parents can exchange their children as part of a child custody agreement. While this concept has existed for some time, it is just recently starting to garner national support and popularity.

Recent focus on visitation may affect children after divorce

Historically, grandparents and other relatives have not had legal rights to see children after their parents seek divorce. It was generally considered an issue that the parents could decide upon, solely or collectively, but recent legislation throughout the country aims to extend legal powers to other family members. Ohio is one of the early states that allowed grandparents legal rights to visitation, though laws may not protect visitation rights to other members of the family, such as aunts or uncles. A recent article describes how another state is now passing legislation in order to allow grandparents and other family members to have court-sanctioned contact with children of divorces.

The divorce gap may be prevalent in Ohio couples

In the news recently, most have heard stories about the wage gap. However, not many have heard the term divorce gap, which refers to the disparity between men and women during and after divorce proceedings. Many have the perception that women walk away from a divorce in much better financial shape than their male counterparts, or at the very least are able to live in the same comfort as they have been accustomed. Ohio readers may be interested that this has been shown to be false, as detailed in a recent article.
