Ending a marriage can be a complex and emotional process. In Ohio, couples wanting to end their marriage have two options – divorce or dissolution of marriage.
Deciding to end a marriage in Ohio is seldom a decision that is made lightly. While there are many concerns that go into arriving at the decision, financial concerns may be chief among them. While it can be difficult, a divorce doesn't have to spell doom for one's financial future. How assets are distributed can help to determine one's stability moving forward. Chief among these is how 401(k) accounts are divided.
Divorce happens at various stages in life. It's a difficult, painful and complicated process. Choosing to separate after a long-term marriage is oftentimes the right decision for couples, but people have their fair share of worries.
Not every marriage in Ohio and across the country endure over the long term. Some statistics suggest that an many as 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. This leads to another more disturbing statistic, that over one million children a year become children of divorce. It is now widely believed that staying together for the sake of the children is not a good idea, but how divorced parents handle parenting post-divorce can be critical to how well children deal with the new family dynamic.
