What if a custodial parent wants to move?

We all know that a divorce inevitably leads to significant changes in everyone's life following a divorce. Either one or both ex-spouses will move out of the home, though it is not uncommon for the custodial spouse to choose to stay in the home. This may be done to minimize the impact of the divorce on children from the marriage. Courts always focus on assuring that the best interests of the children are met; this is often done by allowing the custodial parent to stay in the home.

Why courts look at the best interest of the children

During the process of a divorce, if there are children involved from the marriage, the courts find it prudent to focus on the children and to make sure that all decisions are made with the children involved. Children can be especially sensitive during a divorce. It is not always easy to avoid conflict or animosity in the presence of the children all living under the same roof.

The can's and can not's of prenuptial agreements: part 2

Last week we touched on some of the many benefits and reasons to consider creating a prenuptial agreement, often called a prenup, prior to a marriage. The benefits are vast.

Failing to abide by the law may render certain parts of the prenup invalid, or could void the entire document.

3 differences between divorce and dissolution

Ending a marriage is never ideal, but there are some ways of doing it that are far less painless than others. You likely already know what a divorce entails, but you may be less familiar with the process of dissolving a marriage. Each of these has its own pros and cons that you should be aware of, and one is not necessarily right for every couple.

The can's and can not's of prenuptial agreements: part 1

The last thing a couple on the months, weeks or days before a wedding want to think about or discuss is the potential of the marriage failing and ending in divorce. As we all know, however, the reality of marriage in the United States, including the Dublin, Ohio, and surrounding area, is that about half will ultimately end in divorce.

How is alimony determined?

While in a divorce, there are countless things that need to be considered. The divorce process itself can feel overwhelming. Things can be easier if there are no children involved, but that does not necessarily mean it will be any less stressful, especially when one is looking at their new future.
