The laws of Ohio regarding property division are generally simple, but applying those laws to each divorce can be complicated. For example, if a husband owned the house prior to the parties being married, how is the house going to be divided? Does the wife get any of it? The law simply says the wife is entitled to half the value of the house accrued while the parties were married. Again, the law is simple but actually determining the value of the house at the time the parties were married and comparing it to the value now, as well as taking into account second mortgages and other issues, becomes very complicated.
Property division in a divorce requires an experienced attorney that knows the law and knows how to get the best result for you.
