Retirement pay as a marital asset in military divorce

Marriage with a member of the U.S. Armed Forces is seldom easy. You have likely endured months apart while your spouse deployed, moves to unfamiliar places and silence following especially harrowing assignments. Perhaps your spouse's methods for coping with the stress of his or her military service became a wedge between you, and your marriage is beginning to deteriorate.

Protect your visitation rights while serving in the military

Much gratitude is owed to those who serve in our nation's military. Truly, these people often make great personal sacrifices to carry out their duties. If you are currently serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines, you likely understand that military service members often face everyday family problems, just like everyone else. In fact, many military members in Ohio have faced serious child custody and visitation problems during deployments and/or transfers causing much worry and anxiety on top of their regular (often stressful) military missions.

What is a gray divorce, and are you headed for one?

Do you remember the day you turned age 50? Perhaps, you went to your favorite Ohio restaurant or celebrated at home with family and friends. Nowadays, there are a lot of trendy and fun decorations for such parties, including banners that say, "50 and fabulous" and other clever phrases that make aging seem more like an adventure to anticipate, rather than something to dread.

Not ready to divorce? Legal separation may be an option

Divorce is a complicated process, and many Ohio couples find themselves hesitant to take this step. If you do not want to continue with your current living arrangement, yet find that divorce is not currently an option for many reasons, you may find that a legal separation agreement is the appropriate choice for you and your spouse.
