Property division is fundamental to every divorce. Making sure marital property is divided fairly is a vital task as you prepare to get a divorce in Ohio. Your and your spouse’s assets may include both:
- Marital property: perhaps your home, savings accounts, investments and household goods
- Separate property: Assets that each of you had before the marriage and did not commingle with jointly held goods; also inheritances either of you received, as long as those were not commingled.
Characterizing all assets as marital or separate is a necessary first step for the property division aspect of divorce. Next come negotiations for division of assets.
