Understanding the Role of the Courts in Family Law Cases

Generally speaking, our Ohio courts have no interest in deciding which spouse is right or wrong about disputed marital issues. They prioritize the best interests of children, if any are involved. The courts also attempt to ensure that other issues, such as property division, are resolved as fairly as possible for both parties.

Our attorneys are resourceful and committed to creating child custody and child visitation arrangements that meet children’s needs. Often, by creating detailed parenting plans that clearly establish both parents’ roles and responsibilities, we are able to reach an agreement that works for everyone.

We believe in the peaceful, negotiated resolution of domestic relations issues wherever possible. Especially when children are involved, we take the view that although one bond may be broken, others can be preserved. Please contact us today to meet with a caring, dedicated domestic relations lawyer.

Family Law

Divorce rates are on the rise in the United States, with approximately half of all marriages ending in divorce . Divorce is undoubtedly a difficult emotional and financial process for all parties involved. To aid in the termination of marital unions, all states have established divorce laws.

Primarily governed by individual states, divorce laws that apply in one state may not necessarily apply in another. States sometimes have similar divorce laws, especially with regard to issues of spousal support and alimony, child custody, and property division. However, divorce laws can vary tremendously when it comes to filing procedures, child support, divorce grounds, and residency requirements. If you are considering divorce, a caring and qualified divorce attorney can help you understand the divorce laws in your state.
