What is yours is mine and what is mine is mine too?

How to determine separate property in divorce 

When entering a marriage many spouses combine all their financial assets into joint accounts, buy property together, and proceed under the assumption of 'what is mine is yours' and vice versa. However, this age-old adage does not hold true in a divorce. In Ohio, during a divorce, the court divides into two categories; separate property and marital property. Once the property is categorized, the court then makes an equitable division of all property between the spouses according to the specific facts of the case.

Will The Court Punish My Ex For Having An Affair?

Like many issues in domestic relations, seeking to be reimbursed by the domestic relations court when your spouse has irrevocably broken the marriage vows through actions such as an affair would fall into the category of "it depends."

Fifty-Fifty Custody

People often tell me that their goal for the resolution of their case is 50/50 custody.  I hear the term almost daily in this area of the law.  This term is actually incorrect.

When You are Ready to Leave, Leave Safely

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. If you are in an abusive relationship - be it physically, emotionally, mentally or even financially abusive, and have thought about getting out of that relationship, make sure you take steps to prepare before you make that final step. Remember that not all abuse takes the form of red marks and bruises. Emotional and mental abuse can be just as painful. The period of breaking off a relationship and separation can be the most dangerous for an abused party. Last year, between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017, there were 115 domestic violence fatalities in Ohio. There were children present at the scene in 23% of those cases. Well laid plans may prevent some such tragedies.

Can a Non-Custodial Parent Have Access to Their Child's Records?

You have made it through the exhausting process of negotiating the custody of your kids. You have visitation which is what you believe is in your children's best interest and you go to pick them up from daycare and you go up to the front desk and request to see their daily attendance records only to be told that your ex-wife has said that you are not allowed to see any records because she has sole custody. What do you do?

Politician Files A Civil Protection Order To Silence Adversary

Clermont County Commissioner David Uible recently filed a restraining order against a person who has challenged him publicly. Uible filed the protection order because he wanted to quiet one of his most public critics; not because he was threatened with violence. The case has received significant publicity because Uible is a high profile person. First amendment advocacy groups have cried foul and media outlets are questioning the veracity of Uible's request. Unfortunately the misuse of civil protection orders is all too common. Few people, however, take notice when a high profile person is not involved.
