FAMILY LAW

Families are continually under attack, and we are regularly called upon to assist with divorces, dissolutions, establishing parental rights, genetic testing, and custody battles.

We regularly perform family law work in the County Courts of Common Pleas in Erie, Ottawa, Lorain, Huron, and Sandusky.  We also handle Abuse, Neglect and Dependency cases in both the criminal and domestic relations

Divorce

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.

Genetic Testing

This is a Paragraph. Click on "Edit Text" or double click on the text box to edit the content and make sure to add any relevant information that you want to share with your visitors.

Dissolution

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.
