Woman surprised with a divorce

Most Ohio couples end their marriages because at least one thing in the marriage is not working and they just are not able to come to an acceptable resolution. Sometimes, only one spouse wants to end the marriage, leaving the other bewildered and floundering, wondering what went wrong. One woman recently received a real shock at the news of her own divorce.

What are the financial implications of your divorce?

Recent changes to tax laws will impact divorces, and people facing the prospect of the end of their marriage would be wise to plan well around these changes. If a divorce is final after the end of 2018, anyone paying alimony will no longer be able to deduct these payments for tax purposes. The person receiving the alimony will not have to pay taxes on it.

Yes, Ohio courts are likely to split pensions in a divorce

Every state has its own laws about divorce and marital assets. When it comes to asset division, Ohio courts focus on an equitable and fair outcome.

This is particularly true when it comes to assets that have personal value, such as a pension.

Divorce finalized in Bristol Palin relationship

Many Ohio residents have been through the painful journey of divorce.

Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, finds herself unattached again after her divorce from U.S. Marine, Dakota Meyer.

Father keeps children from foster system in child custody gain

Most news stories pertaining to child custody focus on the court giving primary or sole custody to the mother, leaving the father with a few days of visitation and providing financial support. That is changing, however, as more fathers are seeking full custody of their children for any number of reasons. Ohio parents might be interested in the child custody journey of one single father.

Football star Josh Norman reveals child custody plan

Some men who become fathers as a result of a spontaneous, brief liaison will often deny the possibility of their parental status. Thus, child custody and support are issues they attempt to avoid. Professional football fans in Ohio might be interested to know that cornerback for the Washington Redskins, Josh Norman, is all for a shared child custody agreement for his daughter, born earlier this year.
