Steps to Completing a Divorce in Columbus, Ohio

What are the main issues in Columbus divorce cases?

  • Division of marital property. All property acquired during the term of the marriage is presumed to be marital property unless proven otherwise. As Columbus divorce attorneys, we will work hard to advocate on your behalf for the most favorable property distribution. Our attorneys are well equipped to handle all types of cases. We have experience litigating property distributions in divorces regarding complex valuations, transmutation issues, retirement accounts, pensions, and many matters. We understand the complexity of Ohio law surrounding marital property distributions and will aggressively defend your interests in all property distribution matters.


  • Child custody and visitation. Child custody and visitation is often a highly contested issue in divorce matters. The court takes into consideration the "best interests test" when determining visitation and custody. Parties may be seeking sole custody, shared parenting, and specific visitation. Our attorneys have experience litigating all custody and visitation matters.   

  • Child support. The court will issue child support depending on a host of factors including the amount of time that each parent spends with the child, the income and financial position of each party; and health insurance expenses on behalf of the child, among other factors.  


  • Spousal support. Spousal support is awarded to a party in longer-term marriages. The court issues spousal support taking into consideration the length of the marriage, the income of each party, and the finantial obligations of each party, among other factors.
