Ohio divorce law calls for an equitable distribution of the wealth a couple has accumulated during marriage. This can be tricky and contentious, especially when spouses are jockeying for the same assets or cannot agree on the value of property.
Douglas A. Ball, Attorney at Law, can represent you in property division in contested divorce proceedings, or assist with dividing your estate in an uncontested divorce or dissolution. We have handled a wide range of cases in Clermont County and surrounding counties, including complex and high-asset divorce.
