Divorce guidelines for business owners

When business owners in Ohio decide to divorce, they may face specific considerations related to their businesses. While divorce can have a major financial impact on people in a variety of positions, business owners of closely held private companies can face additional repercussions that can make it difficult or impossible to conduct business in the same way as in the past. As a result, many people may want to plan for how a company will be dealt with in a divorce. While people are often uncomfortable with prenuptial agreements, a private business may make them a necessity.

What you should know about guardianship of a minor

You may find yourself in a situation in which you want to seek guardianship of a minor child, possibly a family member. This is an appropriate course of action if you want to support and care for a child who is under the age of 18 and cannot, for any reason, live with his or her parents. Seeking guardianship can be a complex process, but it may be the right way to protect the interests of the child and your own interests.

Protecting the emotional well-being of your teen after divorce

Ohio parents who are facing divorce understand this process will have a significant impact on the youngest members of the family. Even teens can suffer mental and emotional stress when their parents decide to go their separate ways. Thankfully, there are ways you can shield them from undue duress and ensure they have a strong future.

Estate planning for people without children or close relatives

Ohio parents often distribute their assets to children through their estate plans, but everyone, including childless or single people, has much to gain from making these final arrangements. All people have a right to declare formally how their money and possessions will be treated upon their death. People without close relatives who do not prepare a will or shift assets into a trust could likely have their estates distributed by a probate court under the state law of intestacy to distant relatives who they might not even know.

Keeping peace during a divorce

When a couple in Ohio is going through the divorce process, they understand that it has the potential to become contentious. Divorcing like an adult means the divorcing couple understands that for their long-term good, they need to change course. A contentious divorce proceeding is only going to lead to problems and frustrations. It can have a negative impact on the finances of the divorcing individuals as well.

How foreign laws impact estate planning

Individuals in Ohio and throughout the country may have some of their assets held outside of the United States. However, they should still be accounted for in a person's overall estate plan. Generally speaking, it is a good idea to consider how an asset can be included in a plan before buying it. If a person does have a home, olive grove or other assets outside of the United States, it is critical that it be revealed to an estate planner.
