Family Law

There’s nothing easy about a situation that puts a strain on a family’s dynamics. Whether it’s a separation, custody dispute, paternity concern, or some other matter, every person closely involved in the situation is going to experience some kind of stress. While some circumstances are more overwhelming than others, we at Tim George & Associate believe that every person facing a family law issue deserves the utmost respect and a full understanding of their legal options.

Divorce and Dissolution

Unfortunate things can and do happen to good people. For instance, one spouse can be abusive, neglectful, unfaithful, or simply cruel. Although no one enters into a marriage expecting it to fail, unforeseen events can occur that may make you consider divorce. Only you can decide if you are ready to end your marriage. Feel free to schedule a confidential consultation with us to discuss your situation. We will explain the legal process to you and give you guidance as to your rights under Ohio law. With thirty years of experience practicing in area Domestic Relations Courts, attorney George can provide you with high-quality representation and individualized attention to your cause.

The dissolution procedure is quite different from divorce. If you and your spouse are in complete agreement on all issues — such as custody, division of property, spousal support, financial issues, and more — you can petition the court to end your marriage through dissolution. Having an attorney represent you helps to ensure that nothing is overlooked and the process runs smoothly. Dissolutions tend to be more peaceful, less expensive, and faster.

Custody, Support, and Visitation

There are many factors that go into determining child custody rights for the parents involved, as well as matters of visitation and child support. These decisions only become more complex when special circumstances come into play, but the ultimate goal of the court will always be the same — to do what appears to be best for the child.

When it comes to custody, support, and visitation, there are as many arrangements out there as there are unique situations. What works for one family may be entirely inappropriate for another. That’s why it’s important to choose a family law attorney who cares about finding the arrangement that makes sense for you specifically. We at Tim George & Associate want to fully understand your circumstances so that we can make your voice heard in negotiations. From there, we can work with the other side to establish a parenting plan that works for you. If you and the other parent can't reach an agreement, we will diligently represent you in contested cases.

Other Domestic Law Services

Of course, these are not the only services we provide in regard to family law. We also handle paternity suits, matters pertaining to adoption, and more. Don't hesitate to call and ask for an appointment if you would like to discuss your situation.
