Families are continually under attack, and we are regularly called upon to assist with divorces and dissolutions.  

While people often associate the term "dissolution" with a more amicable way of divorcing, a dissolution generally occurs when the parties agree to all the terms to end the marriage prior to the filing of an action to terminate the marriage. 

Regardless, the other party refusing to participate in the process does not serve to prevent you from getting a divorce, although it can prevent a dissolution (because there is no agreement). 

We regularly perform family law work, including divorces and dissolutions, in the Erie County Court of Common Pleas for residents of Sandusky, Huron, Vermilion, Castalia, Bellevue, and Milan.

Divorce is the contested process by which parties terminate their marriage.  Parties vary in their reasons for divorce, but it only takes one party asking for a divorce to get divorced.  Regardless of your reason, we can assist you in the process.

Establishing Parental Rights

Unfortunately, Ohio's fathers have no rights to their children, if they were not married to the mother at the time of the child's birth. 


These fathers must file a Petition for Allocation of Parental Rights to formally establish their right to parenting time, school records access, and medical records access.

The dissolution is a more amicable process whereby parties terminate their marriage.  It is more amicable, because the parties come to the court with an agreement as to the division of their assets and allocation of parental rights.

Custody & Abuse, Neglect, and Dependency cases

Parents may disagree as to what is in the best interest of their minor children; however, Ohio law provides guidance for the resolution of those conflicts by allocating custody to one parent.  The battle for custody should never be taken lightly, and should always rely upon an experienced attorney.

Shared Parenting

Shared parenting is the alternative to Custody.  It's designed for parties who communicate well and agree to share in the decision making responsibilities when it comes to their minor children.
