Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
I am so sorry that you are having to go through this.
You are free to go back to Ohio and file for divorce once you establish residency there.You do not forfeit any property rights from the marriage.The assets would be divided according to Ohio law here once you file.It is possible that husband files in Maryland, in that case you would have to return for court.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again and the best with the move.
In order to file for a divorce in Ohio, residency requirements must be met for the court to accept the case. If the court discovers it does not have jurisdictional rights to hear the case it will not be accepted or it will eventually be dismissed. The requirements are as follows:
The plaintiff in actions for divorce and annulment shall have been a resident of the state at least six months immediately before filing the complaint.
You would have to wait six months to file once you move to Ohio.
I am sorry this was a site error please disregard, your other expert will follow up.Sorry.

A sole proprietorship can be converted to an LLC by filing Articles of Organization under the name of the Sole Proprietorship. This would be taking what you describe as business 1 and converting it to an LLC rather then a sole proprietorship. After business 1 becomes an LLC by filing Articles of Organization, business 2 files a dissolution with the Secretary of State, then if the desire is to continue a business under business 2's name, business 1 registers the name of business 2 as an assumed business name. The end result would be as you first posed, business 1 is now an LLC and operates a business under the name of business 2.
