It is a trend that may surprise some and may make sense to others: In January, more people file for divorce that in other months of the year. This is thought to happen because individuals want to get through the holidays without disrupting their families. It may also occur because some resolve to be happier in the New Year and experiencing more joy may mean letting go of a spouse.

It is now February and Ohio residents may still be riding this trend and wondering what options they have for ending their marriages. Divorce is a heavy legal matter that has many implications for how the custody of children, the division of wealth, and the distribution of property may be handled. How these and other important matters are managed can have long-term consequences on the life of a person after their marriage has ended, and therefore it is in their interests to ensure that their divorce happens appropriately and on their terms.
