Divorce lawyers serving Akron, Canton and Summit County, Ohio.


Child custody cases can be the most contentious and stressful cases in our entire legal system and that’s because there is nothing more important to fight for. Perhaps you are a parent that needs to protect your child from an abuser. Perhaps you’re a third party, such as a grandparent, that cannot sit back and allow your little ones to be neglected. Perhaps you’re worried that your children will be put in the middle of a nasty divorce. Perhaps a Guardian Ad Litem has been appointed on your case and you’re unsure what that means for you and your family. Perhaps you’re concerned another person is interested in limiting or eliminating your parental rights. Perhaps you’re a member of the military or need to move and wonder where that will leave your parental rights.
