Many personal injury claims result from Ohio crashes

Every year, numerous deaths and injuries happen on Ohio roadways. In each of those crashes, blame is often assigned to at least one person, most likely a driver of one of the vehicles involved. Even so, that party may not face criminal consequences, but may face civil consequences in the form of a personal injury or wrongful death claim depending on the circumstances.

Ohio criminal law: Is taking a breath test optional?

When police officers in Ohio suspect a driver of operating his or her vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, they will ask that individual to give a breath sample. This is standard procedure. Does one have to submit to such a request? Yes and no. In either case, a criminal law attorney may be able to help deal with the consequences of either decision.

Ohio family law: A quickie divorce may sound tempting, but...

When couples in Ohio or elsewhere are ready to end their marriages, getting the divorce process over with as swiftly as possible sounds really tempting. Who wouldn't want to just sign the papers and move on, right? There are issues that come with a quickie divorce, however. With the assistance of a family law attorney, one can get through this difficult part of his or her life as quickly as possible and avoid some of the problems that can accompany a rushed dissolution process.

Ohio family law: Fighting a sole custody request

No one said going through a divorce was easy. The whole situation can go downhill rather quickly if spouses cannot agree on things or if emotions get out of control. When it comes to Ohio couples who have children, sometimes there are reasons for only one parent to be granted custody and other times one parent may request sole custody out of spite. One who believes that he or she should be awarded some level of custody can seek assistance from a family law attorney in order to fight his or her spouse's request for sole custody.

Ohio family law: File a QDRO when accessing an IRA

Sometimes, when going through the divorce process, decisions are made that can actually come back to bite one party in the long run. For example, a retirement account may be drained before divorce proceedings are finalized in order to pay off debts for one or both spouses. If the proper forms are not filled out and filed when doing this, the account owner may suffer financially down the line. Ohio residents can turn to a family law attorney who can help them properly split or drain retirement accounts as part of their divorce property settlements.
