We Handle a Wide Variety of Family Law Issues
Our Cincinnati divorce lawyers practice in a wide range of legal areas that concern families, including:
Divorce: We will guide and protect you throughout the entire divorce process.
Dissolution: This is a process where the parties control the outcome of the termination of their marriage by agreement, instead of by court mandate.
Collaborative law: This is a healthy alternative for developing effective settlement agreements and shared parenting plans.
Post-decree matters: When your circumstances change, your court-ordered child custody, child support and spousal support arrangements may need to change as well.
Child custody/parenting time: A detailed parenting plan can help avoid future misunderstandings and disputes regarding your children and their welfare.
Civil domestic violence: We represent victims of domestic violence, as well as those who have been accused of violence against a family member in domestic relations court.
Stepparent adoption and relative adoption: We can help you get all of the legal rights and responsibilities of a parent through proceedings in probate court.
Third-party visitation: We pursue visitation and companionship rights for people who have played a significant role in a child's life.
Separation agreements: These documents are the contracts between the spouses that settle the issues arising in dissolution, divorce and legal separations.
Mediation: We represent clients in divorce mediation and other matters. We are also hired by other attorneys and clients to serve as a neutral third-party in mediated disputes.
Domestic partnerships: We prepare the documents that provide many of the benefits of marriage to nontraditional couples.
Child support: We help establish, modify and enforce appropriate child support orders.
Spousal support: We also help to establish, modify and enforce appropriate spousal support orders.
Enforcement: When a court order is not being followed, we will fight to ensure that all of the terms of an order are properly carried out.
Modifications: A change in life may necessitate a change in child support or spousal support. We will help guide you through the modification process.
Parents' rights: Both parents have equal rights in terms of their children. We work to ensure that one party does not get short-changed.
Grandparents' rights: If you have an established relationship with your grandchildren, their parent's divorce should not affect your right to see them.
Juvenile court/paternity: We help parents legally establish the paternity of their children, including parenting and support issues.
Property division: We help couples divide property, including real estate, bank accounts, investments, business interests, pensions and retirement funds.
Prenuptial agreements: We are available to negotiate, draft, review or litigate a prenuptial or antenuptial agreement.
