While some divorces are relatively easy, it is always to your advantage to consult an attorney. You or your spouse will need to file a petition stating the grounds for divorce, and you may need to attend a hearing.

Even if you don’t have children, the Court will still need to hear an agreement on property division and possibly even alimony. Your attorney can make sure your rights are protected throughout the process.

Child Custody and Support

When parents live separately, the Court must make sure the children are cared for properly. This includes making the ultimate decision about who has physical custody and how much each parent should be paying to support the children.

You may disagree with your former partner about important issues like which church your children will attend or which school they should go to. Many parents also end up with disputes over child support, and situations change even after the original Court order. Lorain County Family Law Attorney James V.
