Minimizing the traumatic impact of divorce on children

Negotiating a divorce settlement usually involves dealing with delicate issues such as property division and spousal support, but even spouses in Ohio and around the country who become heated during these discussions are often able to look beyond their differences when the issues of child custody and visitation arrangements come up. Parents generally want their children to be happy and thrive, and this outcome becomes more likely when divorcing parents are able to tolerate minor failings and frustrations and accept that their former spouses are acting with the best of intentions.

The importance of avoiding divorce mistakes

More people in Ohio and throughout the country file for divorce in January than at other times of the year. Many people wait to file for divorce until after the holidays are over, but before they do, it is important for them to consider several things so that they can avoid some common mistakes.

New regulations on child support and incarceration

Unlike some other states, Ohio does not consider incarceration "voluntary unemployment" and deny inmates the right to file for a child support modification on those grounds. On Dec. 19, the Obama administration issued regulations that will require all states to allow this modification.

Getting a divorce after being married for decades

For many older Ohio couples, getting a divorce later in life is becoming more common. There are many reasons this might occur. For example, the kids may have left the home and the couple realizes they are no longer in love with each other. Irreconcilable differences can drive couples apart even if they have been married for decades. Additionally, getting a divorce has become much more acceptable than it was a decade or two ago.

What happens when one parent moves after a divorce

Many Ohio divorced couples with young children are able to co-parent after working out a schedule that works for everyone involved. If one such parent decides to move to another town the parenting arrangements can get a lot more complicated. The schedule usually must be changed to accommodate one parent's move, and these changes could cause the other to get resentful.

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