Honest ● Aggressive ● Compassionate

Often the first step in a divorce is the hardest: putting your feelings aside to think rationally about what lies ahead. It is okay and understandable to feel angry. After all, divorce for many people is equivalent to death, and there are many stages of grief to get through.

That is why it is important for you to seek help from an experienced lawyer as you approach divorce. I will take time to listen to your concerns regarding division of assets and spousal support, if applicable in your case. I will advise you on ways to preserve the financial stability necessary to get on with your life.

Several factors are considered when determining alimony or spousal maintenance in Ohio, including:

  • Income of both parties
  • Relative earning potential of each spouse
  • Assets and liabilities of both parties
  • Retirement benefits of both spouses
  • Ages and the physical, mental and emotional well-being of both parties
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Standard of living established during the marriage
  • Education of both parties
  • Contribution by one spouse to the education, training or earning ability of the other spouse
  • Lost income capacity due to marital or household responsibilities
  • Time needed for the party seeking spousal support to acquire education, training or work experience to obtain appropriate employment
  • Child care needs
