Family Law, also called Domestic Relations law, encompasses many aspects of law that can have a significant impact on the home and family life.
For those who are contemplating divorce or struggling with custody disputes, it can be an emotionally difficult period that requires a delicate balance to protect your interests and to consider the needs your children now and into the future. We believe that our client’s children are the most important aspect of any domestic relations case. Our attorneys help clients work through sensitive issues and counsels clients on how to most effectively safeguard the interests of their children and cope with the emotional challenges they may encounter.
A significant part of our family law practice deals with helping couples through a divorce and confronting the legal, emotional, and financial challenges that it may bring. It is important to consult with an Ohio divorce attorney early in the process to protect yourself and your family, both emotionally and financially.
Some of our clients are only thinking about getting a divorce but need more information. Consulting with a divorce attorney does not mean you have to get divorced or that you have decided on divorce, but it allows you to have the essential tools and knowledge to make an informed decision. All consultations are confidential and private.
Other couples come to us after they have mutually agreed upon divorce and need guidance on how to go through the process in the least traumatizing way. We work with clients to dissolve their marriage through a collaborative process to the extent possible, avoiding the costly and emotionally-trying adversarial court system. Unfortunately, however, not all dissolutions are amicable, and we have the expertise to vigorously protect your children, assets and interests in court.
