How Is Property Divided in Ohio?

One of the most commonly contested issues couples encounter during divorce is the division of property. The state of Ohio breaks down property into two categories: marital property and separate property. 

Marital Property vs. Separate Property

Any property obtained during the marriage is considered marital property. This can include assets such as:

  • Personal properties
  • Real estate properties
  • Stocks
  • Bonds
  • Retirement plans
  • Bank accounts

Separate property refers to any property — real, personal, or intangible — that a spouse:

  • Owned before the marriage date
  • Inherited or was gifted after the marriage date
  • Was awarded for a personal injury (excluding any part of the award that compensated for lost wages that occurred during the marriage, as well as medical bills from the injury that were paid with marital funds)

Under Ohio law, marital property is to be divided equitably between the two spouses unless the court can provide a reason for which that would be unfair to one spouse. It’s important to note that what the court deems an equitable division may not always be an equal one.

Separate property is to remain separate. However, if one spouse is found to have engaged in financial misconduct such as hiding property, the court may award some of the offending spouse’s separate property to the other spouse.

What Do Courts Look at When Dividing Property?

Once the court is made aware of all marital property, it will consider multiple factors in order to determine how the property is divided. Some of these considerations include:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • Assets and liabilities of each spouse
  • Whether the family home should be awarded to the spouse with child custody
  • The liquidity of the property
  • How the division of property will affect each spouse’s taxes
  • Retirement benefits of either spouse

The court will then base its decision on what it deems to be an equitable distribution of property.

I cannot speak highly enough of Tim Morris as a lawyer, and just an overall good human being. He was recommended by a family friend to represent me in a civil protection order, which led to me filing for divorce. In what was a truly horrific time, he made me feel confident that my well being, and my children's wellbeing and safety were his top priority. He was honest, forthcoming, and proactive in making sure I felt comfortable and protected throughout the entire process. My husband and I decided to try to reconcile, and he still reached out to discuss options moving forward to ensure I am protected in all scenarios. He is knowledgeable with both the court system and the expectations of the judges, and he handles himself with professionalism and kindness towards both parties. He is fair, but he will advocate for you and he will do it well. I hope I am never in a situation like this again, but if I were I would absolutely want Tim in my corner.

We went to Mr. Morris to finalize our estate documents. Mr. Morris was recommended by a friend of ours. His professionalism and knowledge of what we were looking for was outstanding. We knew immediately that we could trust him with what we needed. He made us feel like we had known him forever.

Tim was my attorney for a custody case. He listened to me, and worked hard to prioritize my needs and concerns. At the beginning of working with him I expressed that my main focus was to make sure my kids had a voice and their needs were addressed. I feel that this happened the entire time... even with Covid and the challenges that created. I refer often to people. Also, his staff was very knowledgeable when he was not able to answer my question immediately!
