How Is Property Division Handled in Ohio?

Under Ohio law, the court will divide your property into two separate categories, separate property and marital property. Separate property is defined as assets acquired independently by a spouse, including gifts, inheritance, and assets obtained before the marriage began, while marital property is defined as assets acquired while the spouses were married, including real estate and retirement benefits. There are a number of retirement plans available to consumers, so it’s important to understand what kind you have in order to prepare for the future.

Retirement plans include, but are not limited to:

  • SEP-IRA
  • Roth IRA
  • Simple IRA
  • SAR-SEP
  • Traditional IRA
  • 401(k)
  • 403(b)
  • Pensions
  • OPERS, PERS, Police and Fire, and Military Pensions

Retirement plans can include a number of benefits that can be complicated to divide, and having experienced legal representation on your side will put you in the best position possible to fight to secure the most beneficial outcome for you and your family.
