Full-Service Family Law Firm Serving Lebanon
When you’re facing important family issues, you want an experienced, assertive law firm by your side. At The Law Offices of W. Scott Russell, LLC, we have more than 15 years of experience advocating for families in Ohio. Whether you’re dealing with a marriage dissolution, want to adopt a child or need help drafting a prenuptial agreement, we have the resources and knowledge to help you achieve your goals.
Services we offer include:
Negotiating, Contesting And Litigating Alimony
Getting divorced should not lead to financial ruin. One of the goals of divorce laws is to make sure that both spouses can enjoy a standard of living close to what they enjoyed as a married couple. We will help you obtain the spousal support you deserve so you won’t have to worry about how you’ll pay your bills.
Fighting For Your Child Custody And Visitation Rights
We advocate for your parental rights so you can continue to be involved in raising your children. For more than 15 years, we’ve been representing parents and grandparents in child custody and visitation disputes. We have the knowledge and experience to help you maintain relationships with the children you love.
Negotiating Child Support Agreements
After a divorce, both parents are responsible for contributing financially to the well-being of their children. We advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents. The best interests of the children always come first in child support negotiations.
Modifying And Enforcing Child Support Agreements
If you are no longer able to make court-ordered child support payments due to a significant change in circumstances, you need to apply for a modification of your agreement in court. Child support payments can only change if the court approves a modification. We can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments.
If your former spouse has stopped making support payments, we can help enforce the terms of your child support agreement. We will locate your ex-spouse and work with the courts to compel them to pay.
Representing Clients In Divorce Proceedings
We fight to get you the best possible settlement or judgment in your divorce hearing. Whether it’s fighting for you in court or guiding the mediation process, we have the skills and qualifications to negotiate for your fair share of marital assets. We’ll fight to make sure the division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights are decided on fairly and equitably.
Family Law Mediation Services
Mediation puts decisions in your hands, often providing more expedient, predictable results than a trial. By removing the stress and emotion of the courtroom, we can minimize conflicts and arrive at a solution that both spouses can live with.
Pre- And Postnuptial Agreements
People have lots of reasons for signing pre- and postnuptial agreements. They are simply a way to protect against a potential financial loss if the marriage fails. Even if both spouses believe the marriage will last, many couples find these agreements beneficial for other reasons. For example, they help couples come to a financial understanding, and they can protect the inheritance of children from prior relationships. We draft pre- and postnuptial agreements that protect the financial interests of both spouses.
