A divorce court does not always order spousal support when an Ohio couple splits up. Very short marriages often do not include spousal support requirements, for instance.
Sometimes after a child support order has been issued, the circumstances of either of the parents will have changed in such a substantial way that a modification to the child support order may be warranted. A parent who is seeking such a modification may do so either by filing a motion to modify the order with the court or, in some instances, by submitting a request to the appropriate Child Support Enforcement Agency. It is important for a person seeking a modification of child support to consult a knowledgeable attorney in order to determine how best to proceed.
Divorce is undoubtedly simpler when both spouses agree to the divorce and its terms. When this occurs, the spouses often can simply obtain a dissolution, which is in effect a divorce, but allows the parties to agree on most of the terms of the divorce without court involvement. However, when the parties cannot agree to terms, a divorce will be required.
Domestic relations matters are among the most stressful of all legal issues. Choosing the right attorney can make all the difference.
When parents are parties to a divorce or other legal action involving a minor child, a court will issue an order regarding the cost to cover health insurance for the minor child.

Divorces are rarely easy, but people are increasingly finding out how to make the process as amicable as possible. As a result, many people choose to forgo hiring a lawyer and represent themselves in the termination of their marriage. However, choosing to forgo legal counsel and proceeding on your own with a dissolution or a divorce cannot only be time consuming and confusing, but it can also lead to problems in the future. Here are a few of the reasons why you should consider hiring a lawyer to assist in terminating your marriage, even in cases where you and your spouse agree on everything.
Spouses often take an oath to stay married "for richer or poorer." But when faced with divorce, this promise can take a dramatic turn, leaving one spouse poverty stricken due to a cutoff of finances. Finding out where your marital assets are held can be an arduous task made worse if your spouse attempts to conceal their location. But, if you know where and how to look for hidden assets, the process of locating your legal fair share is easier.
Many people today own or are co-owners of businesses. If you are in the middle of a divorce, the fate of your business may be in limbo until the divorce is resolved. Fortunately, state law and established legal precedent may make it easier to determine what will happen to your company. Divorce normally doesn't mean that you have to give up your company. Generally, you will either buy out your spouse or otherwise provide compensation based on contributions made to the company. Depending on how the business is structured, it may be possible to walk away with full ownership and rights to future profits.
