Helping With Your Family Law Needs
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 are 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 does not have to cause 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 work to achieve 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 fight 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 strive for a fair division of financial support among 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 considerable 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 help you through the legal process to minimize any potential complications when modifying 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 judgment or settlement 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 all aspects of the divorce, including child support and division of the marital home, are decided fairly and equitably.
Family Law Mediation Services
Mediation puts choices in your hands, often providing more desirable results than a trial. By removing the stress and emotion of the courtroom, we can minimize conflicts and arrive at a solution with which both spouses can live.
Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
People have lots of reasons for signing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. They are simply a way to protect against a potential financial loss if the marriage does not work out. 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 prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that guard the financial interests of both spouses.
