Navigating the divorce process can be a daunting task, laden with complexities and emotional challenges. The attorneys at Gertz & Rosen understand the unique difficulties of domestic relations law. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to providing professional and compassionate legal guidance to help your family through each step of the journey.
In many states, “dissolution” and “divorce” refer to the same legal process for ending a marriage. However, in Ohio, this is not the case. Ohio law distinguishes between divorce, dissolution of marriage, and separation:
A dissolution is often less expensive and takes less time than a contested divorce. On the other hand, if the other spouse is being unreasonable or difficult, litigating the case may be necessary to protect your best interests. At Gertz & Rosen, our attorneys have extensive experience in both family law negotiations and trials, and we can help guide clients in choosing the right course of action for their case.
In Ohio, marital property is divided equitably.
Some forms of property are relatively easy to value and divide, such as homes or bank accounts, but other assets, like a family business or large real estate holdings, can create complex property valuation and division issues. Our firm has the experience and knowledge to help you resolve these matters and ensure a fair division of property.
Parenting issues are determined based on the best interests of the child. Our office has extensive experience in negotiating these sensitive issues, striving to create arrangements that serve the well-being of your children while respecting your parental rights.
Spousal support (or alimony) and child support are critical elements of divorce proceedings. Our skilled attorneys can help you understand how these determinations are made, taking into account factors like the earning capacity of each spouse, the standard of living during the marriage, and the needs of the children.
The path through divorce or dissolution can be difficult, but you do not have to walk it alone. At Gertz & Rosen, we bring deep knowledge, extensive experience, and a commitment to your well-being to every case we handle.
