Divorce can spread within a social group

It may come as no surprise to some Ohio couples that divorce seems to occur in waves within social groups. Not only is the idea of "divorce contagion" something that people often report anecdotally in their social lives, it is backed up by scientific research. According to researchers from Brown University, Harvard University and the University of California at San Diego, spouses with divorced friends are 75 percent more likely to separate themselves. Even spouses with friends of friends who divorce are one-third more likely to decide to divorce.

Rights may be curtailed with GPS monitoring devices

In some cases, defendants in Ohio and around the country are allowed to wear GPS bracelets as opposed to spending time in jail. However, there are limits to how free a person can be when wearing such a device. For example, a person can be sent back to jail or prison if the device is removed. This may be true even if it is removed to have an X-ray or MRI performed.

Preparing to co-parent after the divorce

When parents in Ohio make the decision to end their marriage, they may be concerned about how to deal with the post-divorce future of co-parenting. Issues about child custody and visitation are often some of the most emotionally fraught aspects of a divorce. It can always be very difficult to adjust to a new reality in which the children are no longer sharing their parents' home on a full-time basis. There are some guidelines, however, that can help people move successfully through the transition to co-parenting.
