Figuring out how to divide your property is one of the most important parts of getting divorced. The process can be contentious and emotional unless you are represented by a thoroughly prepared attorney who is devoted to your best interests and equipped to find the best possible solution.
The Suriano Law Firm LLC is a Columbus law firm that focuses entirely on divorce and family law. Our attorney, Susan Suriano, commits her talents and knowledge of the law to helping people in Central Ohio with property division and other divorce matters. If you and your spouse own significant assets, turn to our firm to make sure you get a fair deal.
Splitting Up Assets In Ohio
Ohio is an equitable division state. When a couple gets divorced, each spouse is entitled to an equitable (or fair) portion of the marital property. Marital property includes almost everything you or your spouse acquired during your marriage, such as:
- Cash and bank accounts
- 401(k)s and other retirement savings
- Ownership in a business
- The family home, vacation homes and other real estates
- Collectables such as jewelry, art and antiques
- Family pets
Because the Court would make a decision based on the overall picture of assets and liabilities, there is room to negotiate. For example, if you want to keep the business you started, we can help make that possible, likely by buying out your spouse’s share. Our representation will be based on your particular needs and grounded in Ohio divorce law.
Consider Alternatives To Traditional Divorce
We offer more options than the traditional settlement negotiations and courtroom arguments. Ms. Suriano is a trained mediator, and also uses collaborative law regularly to reach a property division settlement. These options are not right in some cases, but for many, they can save legal fees and time. Perhaps most importantly, they give the parties the tools to solve their own problems, giving them a sense of satisfaction and ownership over the outcome.
