Opportunity may knock in another city, but if you're the custodial parent, you can't just pick up and move.

Divorce and property division: the financial impact

Statistics indicate that divorce rates for Americans age 50 and up have increased dramatically and continue to do so, bringing to light some of the sensitive financial issues that accompany a gray divorce.

Property division, including division of retirement assets, can be a complicated and stressful process for those nearing retirement age.

Avoiding unnecessary child custody litigation

When facing divorce, Ohio parents may feel overwhelmed by the thought of a costly and stressful court battle.

During this process, it is important to make child custody decisions with a strong future in mind, instead of temporary emotions.

Older Americans and their life after divorce

Americans aged 50 and older are choosing to end their marriages at a higher rate than younger couples, many of them facing significant financial challenges after the process is final.

All of these matters must be carefully considered during what is known as a "gray divorce."

Getting a divorce: are you sure you want the house?

One of the many painful aspects of a divorce is the division of mutual assets. Very likely the most valuable asset you and your spouse had in common is the house. Deciding who gets the house and what to do with it is something that has to be thought through with care, especially if you were a stay-at-home mother who is looking at getting back into the workforce after a long time out of it.
