Age and divorce rates in Ohio

In recent years, some analysts have tried to downplay the common belief that half of marriages lead to divorce. While divorce rates have declined since their peak in the 1980s, one recent study concluded that 52.7 of marriages end in a divorce. This is mostly because of the increasing divorce rate among older people. Since 1990, the divorce rate of individuals between the ages of 55 and 64 has doubled.

Paying for private school using child support

For some Ohio parents, sending their children to a private school is a must in order to provide them with the best education possible. However, paying for private school as a single parent can be very difficult due to the cost. If the child lives with one parent following a divorce or separation, the custodial parent may be able to seek additional funds from the non-custodial parent in order to help with these costs.

State jurisdiction over child support and custody

As some Ohio parents may know, custody obligations are determined by a state court that has jurisdictional control over child support, custody and visitation. However, in some cases, one or both parents may move from the geographical area where the custody requirements originated. When this occurs, a federal law ensures that the state-imposed custody agreement will be enforced no matter where the parents or children move within the United States.

Divorce laws vary from state to state

People who get a divorce in Ohio are subject to state-specific laws that may be quite different from the divorce laws in other states. Because federal laws do not regulate divorces, every state has its own way of letting married couples part ways. The time it takes to make a divorce official, the way that property is divided and guidelines about alimony payments are just a few of the issues that can vary greatly from state to state.

These honors are evidence of the quality of counsel we are known for:
