Common Family Law Concerns

Family law encompasses any legal issues related to family members. Some of the most common legal issues families encounter include:

  • Divorce - When a couple chooses to end their marriage, they must address a variety of legal issues of varying levels of complexity. In addition to resolving issues related to any children they have together, a court's assistance may be required to determine how to divide marital property and whether one spouse will pay spousal support (alimony) to the other. After the divorce has been finalized, either spouse may need to modify or enforce the divorce order.
  • Paternity - Children have a right to have a relationship with and receive support from both their parents, and in some cases, legal steps may need to be taken to legally establish that a man is the father of the child. After paternity has been established, a court may address legal issues related to child custody, parenting time, and child support.
  • Prenuptial agreements - Before getting married, a couple may wish to put an agreement in place addressing how certain matters will be handled if they ever decide to end their marriage through divorce. When creating this type of agreement, it is important to be sure that all legal requirements are met to ensure that a prenup is valid and enforceable under Ohio law.
