If you are facing a divorce, you may feel as if you are at an utter loss and as if you are all alone out there. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth. While divorce is a difficult transition, many marriages do end in divorce, and you won’t have to look very far to find someone who shares your pain. In addition to the emotional component, however, there is also an important and complicated legal component that directly relates to your parental and financial rights, and that should not be ignored. Consulting with a compassionate Dayton divorce lawyer early in the process is an important first step to take.
In any divorce that involves children, the child custody arrangements make up a critical component. In Ohio, child custody is now called parental responsibilities (what you likely think of as legal custody) and parenting time (what you likely think of as visitation).
Parental responsibilities involve making important parenting decisions on behalf of your shared children, and it can be either sole or joint. The kinds of decisions involved include:
Parenting time represents the schedule by which you and your ex will split your time with the kids, and it can be divided equally between you, or one of you can take on a primary custodial role (according to whatever schedule is mutually agreeable).
Child support is calculated according to the state’s specific guidelines, and the most consequential variables are the amount of time each parent has with the kids and each parent’s income. Even if you divide your parenting time evenly, however, the parent with higher earnings is likely to make child support payments.
Upon divorce, those assets that you acquired over the course of your marriage will need to be divided between the two of you equitably (which means fairly rather than necessarily equally). In order to make this division fair, a wide range of factors will be taken into careful consideration. Any assets or property that either of you owned prior to marriage and that you kept separate throughout your married years will remain yours alone (but the financial entanglements of marriage often complicate this issue of separate property).
Alimony is called spousal support in Ohio, and while it isn’t always a factor in divorce, it can play an important role in those divorces in which one spouse experiences a financial upset and the other has the financial means to help.

I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. From the first time I met with my team to our last interaction, I always felt like I wasn't a number or a case, I was a person. The whole team was professional, responsive to my calls and concerns, and fought for the outcome I deserved. They even sent me an Ele cupcake for my birthday. I recommend this firm to everyone I know and will return if I ever need services in the future!
I am giving this firm a five-star rating for two reasons. First is the professional way in which I was treated. Every person I spoke with at this firm was professional and extremely courteous. I felt as though I was being treated as a natural person and NOT just a client. In many professional settings, clients are treated as such clients. Therefore they are held at arm's length. This gives off the impression a client is just a number, and there is a coldness and sterility to the service. I was NOT treated in this manner at the Vannoy Firm.…
Anthony VanNoy is an absolutely top-notch attorney. From start to finish, my case was handled with empathy, efficiency, and utter professionalism. The outcome was better than I'd dared to hope for and I cannot recommend him or his firm highly enough.
I first want to thank the staff and the company itself I work with Brittany and Patricia and it was so smooth on my end they took care of everything. They had no problem working with me even when I live the incident happened in a different state. Very very professional in my eyes and my family’s.
Keara Dever took the initiative to advocate for me in my very difficult situation. When no one else would listen to me, she did. She was very supportive and understanding and I am very appreciative for her services. She went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. Thank you so much Mrs. Dever. And by the way, she is AWESOME!!! Carl. M
