Equitable Distribution of Marital Assets
Only property and assets acquired during the marriage is subject to division in the event of a divorce. Ohio is an equitable distribution state, which means the court will divide marital property in a fair and equitable manner. This does not mean that each spouse will receive an equal share of the marital property. The court considers several factors when making this determination.
Factors considered by Ohio courts for the purpose of asset division include:
- Each spouse’s economic circumstances
- Income and earning capacity
- The conduct of the spouses during the marriage
- Economic misconduct by either spouse
- Value of marital property
- The support of minor children
