Is joint-custody advantageous for children?

Whether you have recently filed for divorce or you are considering entering into the process, there are a myriad of factors that must be negotiated. Divorce can be overwhelming and emotional, especially when there are children involved. It may be difficult for you and your spouse to determine what type of parenting arrangement will work best for the children. Traditionally, children are put in the sole-custody of one parent, while the non-custodial parent has visitation periodically throughout the month. Studies show, however, that children may fair better in a joint-custody situation, where they spend a significant amount of time with both parents.

What’s the difference between a DUI and an OVI?

You hear a lot of phrases used to describe drunk driving violations. While driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are quite common in many states, Ohio uses the phrase operating a vehicle impaired (OVI). The Ohio State Bar Association explains the reasoning behind this, as well as other facets of OVI law and arrests.

How can I choose the right executor?

An executor is a person responsible for handling the affairs of your estate after you’re gone. Making the right selection is crucial, as you want to ensure this person is capable of handling the many chores and tasks of handling an estate, including wills and trusts issues. AARP offers the following tips to help you make the right decision.

What should I do if someone files a protection order against me?

It can feel frustrating and sometimes insulting to find out a family member has filed a protection order against you. Often those who are the subject of a protection order also feel defensive and have the urge to immediately share their side of the story. However, it is important to take appropriate actions in response to the protection order to help ensure your side of the story is shared in the right time and place.
