Relocating with the kids after a divorce

Oftentimes, Columbus residents may find that the conclusion of their divorce proceedings does not bring with it the finality they were anticipating. They may find that remaining in relatively close proximity to their ex-spouses may continue to stir up the emotions that contributed to the end of their marriages. Thus, to assist in the process of moving on, they may choose to relocate (indeed, information shared by lists "Other family reasons" and "A change in marital status" amongst the most common reasons why Americans move). Yet relocating can be a complicated process when a divorced couple has children together. 

What do you need to know about post-divorce estate planning?

The most important thing to know about estate planning after a divorce in Ohio is to take care of it as soon as possible. This is especially important if you already have an estate plan in place that needs revision to reflect the current circumstances. You never know what could happen: you could die suddenly or become incapacitated, and your outdated estate plan could grant privileges, powers or property to your ex-spouse that you do not want him or her to have.

Do children have any say in custody matters?

One of the biggest issues in many divorce cases in Ohio is child custody. As you prepare for your hearing on the custody of your children, you may wonder what will happen. Many parents and children want to know if the children will have any say in who they live with and the other custody arrangements. According to the Ohio Revised Code, the court has the right to allow or deny children to express their wishes about custody in court.

Will you have to worry about your ex's debt in an Ohio divorce?

The process of divorce helps people separate their lives from that of their spouse. For couples without children, the main concerns of divorce are usually financial. Even for couples with children, it is common for both of the spouses to worry about the implications of dividing up their assets and their debts.

The difference between divorce and dissolution of marriage

For any number of reasons, couples in Ohio and elsewhere may make the difficult decisions to end their marriages. Although the terms divorce and dissolution of marriage are often used interchangeably for terminating a union, they are two different legal actions. Therefore, it may be helpful for those who are planning to split from their spouses to understand the pointed differences between these actions.
