Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

We have compiled a list of common queries regarding family law matters to provide you with general information. Please note that the following responses are not legal advice, and scheduling a free consultation is recommended for personalized advice.

 

1. What areas of family law does your office help with?

 

Our office practices in various areas of family law, including but not limited to:

 

  • Divorce and dissolution

  • Child custody and visitation

  • Child and spousal support

  • Division of assets and property

  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

  • Civil protection orders

  • Adoption and guardianship

  • Paternity disputes

2. How long does the divorce process take in Ohio?

 

The duration of the divorce process in Ohio can vary depending on several factors, such as the complexity of the case, whether the divorce is contested or uncontested, and court availability. In general, an uncontested divorce typically takes several months, while a contested divorce involving disputes over child custody, support, or property division may take much longer. We will guide you through the process and provide an estimated timeline based on the specifics of your case.

 

3. How is child custody determined in Ohio?

 

Child custody in Ohio is determined based on the best interests of the child. The court considers several factors, including the child's relationship with each parent, the parents' ability to provide a stable home environment, the child's preferences (if of sufficient age and maturity), and any history of domestic violence or substance use. We can help you understand the factors that influence child custody decisions and advocate for your parental rights.

 

4. What factors are considered when determining child and spousal support?

 

In Ohio, child support is calculated based on the state's child support guidelines, which consider factors such as each parent's income, the number of children, healthcare expenses, and childcare costs. Spousal support, also known as alimony, is determined based on factors such as the duration of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, the standard of living during the marriage, and the financial needs of both parties. We can provide guidance on child and spousal support calculations and advocate for a fair resolution.

 

5. Can I modify an existing child custody or support order?

 

Yes, it is possible to modify child custody or support orders if there has been a significant change in circumstances. Examples of significant changes may include a parent's relocation, a substantial change in income, or a change in the child's needs. Our attorneys can assess your situation, determine if modification is appropriate, and guide you through the legal process to seek a modification of the existing order.

 

6. How can your firm assist with civil protection order cases?

 

Our office is experienced in handling civil protection order cases and can provide legal assistance and protection for victims of domestic violence. We can help you obtain a protection order, navigate the legal process, and advocate for your safety and well-being.
