Seven things to consider in a gray divorce

If you are over the age of 50 and are considering a divorce, you are not alone. It is becoming increasingly common for couples to divorce in their senior years. According to a study from Bowling Green State University, divorce after the age of 50—otherwise known as “gray divorce”—nearly doubled between the years 1990 and 2010.

The importance of co-parenting effectively

When parents divorce in Ohio, it is usually the children who suffer the most. They now have two different households to live in. When parents cannot come together, it has a negative impact on the children who often feel as if they are stuck in the middle. This is not good for anyone. Parents need to work together and learn to co-parent effectively.

Child custody particulars regarding active military statuses

If you are one of many Ohio residents who also serve our nation's military, you may share the concerns of others regarding potential child custody problems and other issues if you are deployed. Like most parents, it's only natural that you worry about your kids from time to time; such anxiety often escalates for those serving overseas.

Do the children have input on custody arrangements?

During a divorce, the focus of the court often goes on the children. You and your partner may be worried about dividing assets and the financial aspects of the situation, but in the end, the most important thing is that the children are heard. In Ohio, the court may give the children a chance to speak out when it comes to custody and visitation. This gives them the chance to voice their opinions and gives them some control over the difficult situation.
