Divorce is no one's first choice, but sometimes it is the best option for you and your family. I have years of experience guiding people through divorce litigation, and the knowledge and expertise to make sure your rights are protected.
When parents are unmarried, jurisdiction over parenting
decisions and parenting time rests with the Juvenile Court in your county. In Lake County, I serve as a Guardian ad Litem, which is a court appointed representative for the best interest of the child. I use this knowledge to represent my own clients when parental rights and responsibilities
are being contested.
Dissolution ends a marriage the same basic way a divorce does, but in a much more collaborative manner. In many cases this is the best option, and can save both parties significant time and money. Allow me to use my intricate
knowledge of the requirements of Ohio law, and specifically,
the Lake County Domestic Relations Court, to help craft
a Separation Agreement perfectly tailored to your individual
If you are paying too much, or receiving too little, in child support, I have the expertise to make sure you are receiving or paying the proper amount that your child is entitled to under Ohio law. Just because a change in earnings has occurred does not mean the child support obligation changes as well. I can file the proper documents to make sure your Child Support situation is fair and just.
