How mediation can help you manage a tough divorce

It's no secret that divorces bring out the worst in people. Perhaps it is the sense of betrayal or the sense of entitlement that people develop, but there appears to be an inherent need to take emotional digs and mark territory as the legal relationship is dissolved.

An essential mindstate for divorcees

It's no secret that divorce can be an emotionally difficult experience. After all, most people going through this process are harboring feelings of betrayal or believe that they deserve better from an inconsiderate spouse.

If you thought your divorce was bad....

Ohio divorcees may think they are going through the most difficult time of their lives. Some are starting over again...figuratively and literally. Others are trying to regain some semblence of a normal family life. Regardless of what changes they are experiencing, they may pale in comparison to a pair of Cincinnati law professors who have been embroiled in a war of domestic litigation for nearly a generation.

Truths about infidelity myths

Sex scandals can gain national headlines when they have two elements involved: a married, high profile person (usually a man) and the specter of cheating without getting caught.

A speedy divorce leads fraud accusations

Most high asset divorces in Ohio are slow, arduous procedures. When such a divorce is completed quickly, it could be a welcome sight to litigants who want to move on with their lives. However, it could also be a ruse to mask fraudulent intentions.
