Resolving Marital Property Issues in Ohio Divorce
As an equitable distribution jurisdiction, Ohio does not require a strictly even division of marital property between divorcing spouses. Instead, it assumes an even division as a starting point, and makes adjustments from there in order to arrive at a fair division.
As you can imagine, marital property division is an inexact science at best, and divorcing spouses are usually better off resolving property issues through negotiation rather than through contested court hearings. That does not mean you need to make unreasonable concessions. To learn about the best ways to protect your interests on property division issues, contact an experienced divorce attorney at Stebelton, Aranda & Snider in Lancaster.
