Although a decision that is often not easily made, the decision to end your marriage is only the first step down the sometimes rocky road to divorce. There are many decisions to be made, many issues to overcome (legal and otherwise) and many long-term implications resulting from those decisions. That is why it is so important to go into a divorce with a clear understanding of your rights and legal options and a divorce attorney who will work with you every step of the way.
Ohio law provides four ways for a husband and wife to end their marital relationship: legal separation, annulment, divorce, and dissolution.

WHAT REASONS DO MOST CLIENTS HAVE FOR FILING FOR A DIVORCE?
There are many reasons why people choose to file for a divorce. Typically it is because one party does not wish to terminate the marriage, the two parties cannot reach agreement and/or there is a desire to pursue immediate financial protection, obtain spousal support or protect the children involved.
PROPERTY DIVISION: WHO GETS WHAT ASSETS?
One of the most contentious and difficult issues in a divorce involves the division of marital property and assets. Whether you are considering divorce or are already entering the process, you need a strategic counselor who can protect your property interests and rights. The attorneys at NLG have experience obtaining optimal property division results for our clients, whether they have minimal assets or complex holdings involving professional practices, family businesses, trust funds, inheritances and intricate financial withholdings.
We are experienced in divorce and property division cases involving: Real estate, business assets, savings accounts, retirement accounts, stock options, IRAs, military pensions and marital or separate property.
In addition to making sure that the court has a clear understanding of all assets and interests, you may also need an attorney to identify or deal with financial misconduct. Our attorneys have experience in cases involving hidden assets and will assert your right to a share of all business accounts, savings accounts, retirements, and other complicated assets of which you may not be aware.
Additional issues may arise involving the valuation of certain property. We will work with appraisers and other professional experts to assess the value of your property and then see that it is equitably distributed as a result of divorce or marriage dissolution.
