Protecting Your Assets And Finances
It is a misconception that you will automatically lose half your assets in a divorce. Ohio is an equitable distribution state, which means that the court divides marital assets equitably, but not necessarily 50-50. This leaves a great deal of discretion. Judges consider factors such as:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse’s contribution to the marital assets
- Whether one spouse supported the other financially
- Whether one spouse paid for the other’s education or job training
- Each spouse’s earning potential
If you want to avoid giving control over your finances to a judge, our lawyers can represent you during mediation or negotiation sessions. Through skillful advocacy, we can usually help clients find positive solutions out of court.
