Four mistakes to avoid when getting divorced

If you are considering divorce, it is important to know what you are getting into just as much as what you are getting out of. Indeed, you want to get out of a troubled relationship, but it is also critical that you minimize the mistakes that can lead to a long, tumultuous divorce and a difficult after-divorce experience.

Should you consult an attorney in an uncontested divorce

Many people considering divorce may be discouraged by how much they imagine they will have to pay in order get out of their marriage. Indeed, contested divorces, where both sides are entrenched in their respective positions, can obviously be costly. But for those who have few assets, there is a way for them to simply move on. The process for uncontested divorces is streamlined so that people can exercise their rights without too much difficulty.

The value of good friends for divorcees

The sentiment from the opening theme of “The Golden Girls” is not limited to retired women in South Florida. We know that divorcees in Ohio can appreciate the support and candor that comes from a trusted friend.

When to consider another attorney for your divorce

If you are thinking that your divorce is not going as smoothly as suspected, you should be able to rely on your attorney to deal with the legal issues that come about. However, if you are feeling as if your counsel is not helping you through these problems, it can create a feeling of helplessness and disappointment that no divorcee should have to deal with.

Does alimony ever end in Ohio?

Whether you have been ordered to pay alimony or you are currently receiving it, you may have many questions about how long these payments will continue, or if they can ever be modified or terminated early. Well, the short answer is that it depends.

How is alimony determined?

When a couple gets divorced, alimony may be rewarded to one of the former spouses. Alimony (also referred to as spousal support) is payment made by one former spouse to another after a divorce in order to stabilize the financial situation for the less-earning partner. The purpose of alimony is to keep things fair between the splitting parties and to avoid leaving one spouse in an economic crisis.

One area in which this can especially be the case are financial matters.
