Passionate family law attorney handles filing, property and custody matters

The dissolution of a marriage often involves crucial decisions about the welfare of your children and the equitable division of your assets. Her family law firm supplies Cuyahoga and Medina County clients with the information they need regarding:

  • Filing and options — To file for divorce, one party must have lived within the state for at least six months and within the county of filing for at least 90 days. If you and your partner wish to end your marriage and have agreed on all relevant terms relating to property division, custody, spousal support and other matters, a petition for dissolution can be filed. This shortens the marriage termination process and is usually completed in 30 to 90 days from filing  documents. Uncontested divorce is also an option where a ground (incompatibility or living apart for at least one year) or fault ground (such as adultery) is used to terminate the marital union.
  • Property division — Ohio is an equitable distribution jurisdiction, which means that if parties cannot reach a consensus on how to divide marital property and debts, the court determines what constitutes a fair result. This might not be an even split, however. Courts often look at the assets brought into the marriage, gifts or inheritance received or personal injury settlements when considering this.
  • Custody and child support — When divorcing parents have minor children, she is committed to establishing appropriate custody and child support arrangements so that children’s physical, emotional and financial needs are met and your parental rights are upheld.
  • Spousal support — Sometimes referred to as “alimony,” spousal support can be obtained while a divorce is pending or after the marriage has been dissolved. She can explain how the length of the marriage and the earning ability of each party can affect the eventual decision. From there, her firm advocates for a proper determination.

Through tactical trial strategies and professional courtroom presence, she is able to successfully represent clients throughout the adversarial litigation process. Whatever complications might arise, her firm is prepared to handle each aspect of your divorce methodically in pursuit of the most favorable outcome possible.
