Children are dependent upon the adults in their lives to teach them living skills and to help them gain confidence. When adults are engaged in the emotionally difficult process of separation and divorce, it can be easy to forget about the needs of the children.
Ohio no longer uses the term "custody." Instead, Ohio courts "allocate the parental rights and responsibilities for the care of the minor children of the marriage." When making the allocation of the parental rights and responsibilities for the care of the children, the court must take into account that which would be in the best interest of the children.
In any Ohio divorce, the court orders an equitable, but not necessarily equal, division of property acquired during the marriage. The court does not divide any property acquired before the spouses married. Therefore, it is important to document what property the spouses own and when each acquired it.
