About Divorce



Ohio is a no fault divorce state.  That means that no matter who is the bad actor in the relationship, the court really doesn't care.  That is harsh.  When one of the parties of a divorce is a really bad actor--they have cheated, stolen, beaten, abused and in so many other ways taken advantage of the other party--you would think that that bad actor should be punished for his or her abuse.  It doesn't work that way.


Divorce puts 50% of the marital assets in the hands of one party and 50% of the marital assets in the hands of the other party.   In almost every case, a finalized divorce disappoints both spouses.  Both spouses feel they have been cheated.
