Help For Your Divorce

A divorce is generally where the parties do not agree and is started by filing a complaint. Dissolution of marriage is where the parties reach an agreement before anything is filed with a court.

Divorce is a contested matter filed formally with the court when a couple is unable to agree upon all of the details involved in terminating their marriage. A high percentage of divorce cases that are filed with the court are resolved through pretrial negotiations.

We Look Out For The Best Interests Of Your Child

Custody battles are often the most destructive litigation. Before getting involved in a custody fight, be sure that you are placing your children's best interests first and not your own.

Several years ago, Ohio law replaced the term visitation with parenting time (the terms are both used and mean the same). Even when there is no dispute as to the children's primary household, arriving at a schedule that works for both parents and the children is often the most time-consuming part of any divorce case.

Both parties have a financial obligation to support the child(ren); this applies to both married and unmarried parents. Typically, the parent whose home is the primary household of the children will receive some type of child support.
