Allocation of Parental Rights

In a divorce or dissolution of marriage important questions arise concerning the children. What should happen to the children?

Child Support

Children need the financial support of both of their parents. The Ohio Child Support Guidelines are designed to provide children with the appropriate amount of support from both parents.

Shared Parenting

Parents ending their marital relationship have two methods of determining how they will deal with issues involving their children.

Division of Assets & Debts

If a couple cannot agree on a settlement during a divorce, the court will decide how to divide their marital property.


Divorce is the termination of a marriage in a lawsuit that is initiated as a contested manner. It is an intensely personal experience.


If there has been a major change in your financial or living situation, we can help you obtain a modification of your child custody, child support, or spousal support orders under appropriate circumstances.

Domestic Violence

Allegations may arise of spousal or child abuse. In some cases, these claims are warranted and protection is necessary. Other times, false claims of abuse are made to gain leverage in custody dispute.

Spousal Support

Spousal support (Alimony) is needs-based and is determined on a case-by-case basis after a thorough consideration of a number of factors.


An adoption terminates the legal tie between a biological parent and a child. It creates a new parent child relation in every sense.

Military Issues In Divorce

We represent servicemen and women and have the experience you need to protect your assets and rights.

Abuse & Neglect

A finding of abuse, dependency or neglect in a juvenile court may have a devastating effect upon a parent's right to custody of his or her children.

Grandparents Rights

Many times only the grandparents are the appropriate persons to provide the necessary care and support for children.

Dissolution of Marriage

The dissolution of marriage is the termination of a marital relationship by the agreement of the parties before the matter is submitted to the court.
