If you are facing a divorce, there is a lot on the line. Not only are emotions running high, but your financial future and your parental rights are uncertain.
The best way to move forward through your divorce is to break it down into manageable parts and to work closely with an experienced Ohio divorce attorney throughout the process.
Your divorce will not be exactly like any other couple’s. Your divorce will, however, contain the same basic building blocks (as applicable) as every other divorce. These include:
Each of these that applies to your divorce will directly affect your financial future and your parental rights, which means they require close attention).
The property and assets that you and your spouse acquire during your years of marriage are considered marital property, which – in the event of divorce – is intended to be divided equitably. Equitably can mean equally, but a more accurate definition is fairly under the circumstances involved. Separate property, on the other hand, refers to the property each of you brought into your marriage with you and that you kept separate over the years. While separate property remains your separate property upon divorce, the dividing line between marital and separate property can blur more easily than you likely realize.
Ohio now refers to legal and physical custody as – respectively – the allocation of parental rights and responsibilities and parenting time, and both can be either sole or joint. The allocation of parental rights and responsibilities refers to who will be making important decisions on behalf of the children. Parenting time relates to the schedule you and your ex will each have with your children moving forward. Often, one parent becomes the primary custodial parent, and the other has a visitation schedule, but you can also split your time equally or nearly equally.
Both parents are financially responsible for supporting their children throughout their childhoods, and this responsibility is addressed by child support. Child support is calculated using state guidelines, and the parent with the visitation schedule generally pays child support to the primary custodial parent. If you split your time with the children equally, however, the higher earner will likely pay child support to the other parent – to help balance the support relative to each parent’s earnings.
Spousal support (previously known as alimony) is intended to help balance a financial inequality brought on by divorce. This means that if one spouse experiences a financial decline and the other has the financial ability to help, alimony can help bridge the financial gap.

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
Great experience and I would recommend to anyone in need of counsel for any civil/ Legal matter. They have people that specialized in certain areas and they can give you information or tell you which way you need to go with the case. I had a great experience and my friend called last week and the same professional help was given! Call them you won't be sorry!
