A Better Approach to Family Law

Cincinnati Divorce Attorneys

Helping You Through the Divorce Process

Emotionally, divorce can be about deceit, betrayal, frustration, neglect or other avenues that lead to the failure of a relationship. Legally, it is about the termination of the rights and responsibilities you and your spouse share as a married couple and as parents, if you have children.

Our Cincinnati divorce lawyers at the law firm of Brinkman & Associates provide compassionate and comprehensive legal services to clients in Ohio and northern Kentucky who are getting divorced. We have the experience to represent clients with large, complex marital estates as well as those with more modest assets.

What You Should Know About Divorce

In Ohio, you have to have grounds for divorce. Our Ohio family law mediation attorneys will listen to you describe why you want to terminate your marriage and advise you of your options.

Divorce and dissolution are different legal processes that both result in the termination of marriage and the assignment of property and parental rights and responsibilities. In a dissolution, the husband and wife agree on all of the terms of their separation before filing with the court. If possible, it is usually most healthy to use negotiation, mediation and/or collaborative law to try to reach an agreement outside of court. If you and your spouse cannot agree on all aspects of your separation agreement, you may need to file for divorce rather than dissolution.

We Provide Diligent Representation

In a divorce case, the court decides disputed issues. That means we must present a strong case that persuades the judge to decide in your favor. The key to success in court is preparation. We do not shoot from the hip. We know that your future and your children's future are, to a great extent, in our hands. We take that responsibility very seriously and prepare each case diligently.

I really appreciate the way Mrs. Brinkman handles difficult situations and difficult people.  She represents me with confidence, yet always makes sure that I know what is going on and that I fully understand my options.  Her paralegal Tamara, have also answered my questions promptly and professionally; and have helped me through some tough times.

Karen Brinkman was brilliant in court; I obtained full custody of my daughter and am extremely grateful.  She made my family, my witnesses, the other professionals, and myself very comfortable by constantly educating us and keeping us informed of the law and the legal procedures.  She deserves a lot of credit for her careful wording of motions and entries and her ability to take charge of out-of-control situations.

-Dave B.

Karen and Tamara went into action on behalf of my son and granddaughter.  Their caring attitudes come through in everything they say and do.  I am sure that I will be looking to Brinkman & Associates for legal advice and for common sense answers whenever I have a family law question in the future.

-Sandy E.

I was very thankful that I had Mrs. Brinkman on my side when I went to court regarding a modification of child support that had been requested by my former husband in the Hamilton County, Ohio, Juvenile Court.  She returns my calls and responds to my emails promptly and thoroughly.
