During a divorce involving parents of minor children, custody and visitation issues can become complicated and contentious. In most cases, it’s best for mothers and fathers to overcome hard feelings and work together on arrangements that create a positive environment for children and their parents. Donna Ramsey-Caputo, Attorney L.L.C. in Strongsville offers skillful counsel to Northeast Ohio clients dealing with parental rights and responsibilities following a divorce. In practice since 1984, she can often identify creative solutions even when there is sharp disagreement between the parties. Should a fair agreement be impossible to reach, she is a courtroom advocate who will press for a resolution that safeguards your child’s well-being.
Ohio no longer uses “custody” to describe matters pertaining to the parenting terms that are set after a divorce. Instead, these issues are called “parental rights and responsibilities.” As an experienced family law attorney, she will take the time to go over key guidelines and concerns relating to:
All decisions that are made by the court are based on what the judge believes to be in the child’s best interests. Whether you largely agree with your fellow parent or sharp disputes exist, her firm protects your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive environment.
Changing needs of parents and children often justify the modification of child custody and support orders. In some instances, revisions can be negotiated easily, where her firm can submit adjusted terms for court approval. Other times, parents don’t agree to changes,she works closely with families to advocate for an appropriate solution. If a custodial parent requests a move to another state, emotions can run high. Her firm deals with parental relocation if an agreement cannot be worked out. By thoroughly investigating the situation, she can prepare a comprehensive case that addresses the need for the move, how the child will be affected, and each parent’s willingness to support the other’s relationship with their son or daughter.

"We moved to Strongsville a few years ago and needed an attorney to update our wills and related documents. Fortunately, my sister had been using Donna for almost twenty years. Donna is the most professional, efficient and caring attorney we have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is very organized, and is always on time for our appointments. Donna is a great listener, and has the capacity to anticipate your needs. We also were in the process of updating our elderly parent's wills, and Donna and her team actually came to the nursing home at moment's notice when we had an emergency. We will never forget the caring service we received from Donna, and highly recommend her!" - Julie August 5, 2017
