If you are considering filing for divorce in the Akron area, or your spouse has filed a complaint for divorce against you, we encourage you to talk to the experienced Akron, Ohio, divorce lawyers at Randal A. Lowry & Associates today. With almost 40 years of experience, we can advise you on what to expect from the Ohio divorce process and how best to proceed.
If your spouse has filed a complaint for divorce against you, your tendency might be to put off making major decisions. However, keep in mind that deadlines are involved and taking the first, critical planning steps now can prevent serious regrets later.
Divorce timelines and initial considerations include:
Even if you are able to resolve all issues amicably and file for dissolution of marriage (similar to an uncontested divorce), we believe that retaining experienced counsel is important so that you achieve the best possible outcome.
Hiring a lawyer does not mean your case must go all the way to trial or that it must be handled as a bitter dispute. It simply positions you to protect your interests and exercise some control over what will happen. For most people we serve, our primary goal is to settle any disagreements and avoid trial. We can also discuss the possibility of resolving your case through mediation, arbitration or collaborative law.
If negotiation does not achieve favorable results, as when a divorcing spouse persists in making unreasonable demands, we will pull out all the stops fighting for you. With a proven litigator on your side, a trial can be turned into an opportunity to achieve a better outcome than we initially targeted.
We welcome you to call Randal A. Lowry & Associates at (330) 576-3363 to consult with us regarding your Ohio divorce. Our Akron-area divorce attorneys serve clients throughout Summit, Medina, Portage, Stark and Cuyahoga counties.
