Communication problems, differing financial goals and unrealistic expectations for the marriage are all top reasons why Ohio couples get divorced. In the case of Jeremy Meeks, star of “Hot Felon,” it was infidelity. Meeks filed papers for a divorce from his wife, Melissa, after the paparazzi leaked pictures of him kissing another woman.

Meeks and Chloe Green, the daughter of a British retail tycoon, have made entertainment headlines as a couple since they were spotted together early this past summer. Meeks cited irreconcilable differences between him and his wife as he seeks to move on to a new relationship. He also wants to share in raising their 7-year-old son, Jeremy Jr., and is seeking joint physical and legal custody.

Melissa wants spousal support but the amount was not disclosed in a report on the situation. She also has asked that the court order that, at no point in the future, Melissa be required to pay Jeremy spousal support. As much as Jeremy wants to move on, however, he wants to make sure the divorce and any and all support terms are properly finalized.

Even if both parties want a divorce, the legal issues may be complex. The different types of financial support, the division of assets and debts and the custody and scheduling of children and pet visitation are all matters that may need to be assessed in court if two people cannot work out the details on their own. An attorney experienced in Ohio family law will be able to keep the focus on the legal matters at hand and help negotiate a settlement on which all can agree.
