At Hunt Law, here are some of the family-focused legal services we provide:
Divorce can be ugly. Even under the best of circumstances, taking this step will inevitably involve the division of property and deciding upon new living arrangements for one of the parties, not to mention figuring out how to split your time with any minor children.
Still, divorce can help to dispel any remaining ambiguities over obligations and who gets what when, even if it isn’t always as precise or equal in the way it impacts the respective parties. There’s no doubt that along the way it can be a confusing, emotionally-draining process. That’s why you will want to bring your Warren divorce case to the family law professionals at Hunt Law. We’ll make it easier to move forward with the proceedings so that you can move on with your life.
Keep in mind that, in order to file for divorce in Ohio, at least one of the parties concerned must have resided in-state for at least six months before the filing takes place. Additionally, Ohio law also stipulates that one spouse resides in the filing county for at least three months. Don’t worry, we’ll cover all the ins and outs during your free divorce consultation session with the Hunt Law team. At that point we will discuss your official grounds for divorce, the preparation and filing of forms, as well as the steps involved in serving your spouse.
Divorce can certainly help clarify issues related to any minor children. However, in the cases of unmarried parents, Ohio law gives a distinct advantage to the mother. A mom will retain sole custody of any children until the courts decide otherwise. And, get this, a dad who proves paternity and financial support of a child doesn’t necessarily have rights to visitation. However, the pendulum can swing either way once legal hearings ensue. That’s why you will want the Hunt Law team fighting for you.
In Ohio there is no such thing as alimony any more but, without proper legal representation, one partner can still get the “gold mine,” while the other one gets the “shaft.” That’s because alimony has been updated in the form of spousal support. As the name implies, this refers to payments made from one spouse to the other in the aftermath of a divorce. This type of financial support is based largely on income rather than gender, so either spouse could be ordered to pay up. Don’t take any chances with your monetary resources, talk to Adam Hunt ASAP.
We hope you are ready to take the next step toward a better life. What have you got to lose? Our initial family law consultations are free at the Warren, OH office of Hunt Law. Call us during office hours or use our online form to request an easy appointment at any time.
