Divorce is difficult for everyone involved, including you, your soon-to-be-ex, and your children, and as a result, emotions tend to run high. Because the terms of your divorce will play such a critical role in your post-divorce future and because divorce is often an emotional rollercoaster, working closely with an experienced divorce lawyer in Dayton from the outset can help keep your divorce moving smoothly and steadily forward (while protecting your parental and financial rights in the process).
Those assets and properties that you and your spouse acquired while you were married are generally designated as marital property, and marital property must be divided equitably in the event of divorce. Equitably is the law’s way of saying fairly – given the circumstances involved in your marriage and divorce. While those assets that either of you brought into the marriage with you and that you kept entirely separate over the course of your marriage are considered separate property, keeping separate property separate throughout a marriage is a very high bar.
With divorce, parents must address what most of us think of as child custody concerns (called parental rights and responsibilities in Ohio). These break down into the following two categories:
The State of Ohio requires both parents to support their children financially, and this responsibility is addressed through child support payments. Child support is calculated according to state guidelines, and the payments are based on each parent’s relative financial ability to pay – with additional variables factored in. Generally, the parent with the visitation schedule pays the primary custodial parent child support, but even if your parenting time is divided more evenly, the higher earner is typically required to pay child support. Additional factors that can play a role include the number of overnights the payor has with the children and whether or not one of you purchases private health insurance for them.
Alimony is generally reserved for those instances in which one spouse needs financial assistance getting on his or her feet, and the other has the financial ability to help.
