About Family Law: Family law is the areas of law that encompasses family related disputes involving child custody and visitation, child support, division of marital property and assets, establishing or disproving paternity, alimony, modifications of standing court orders, adoptions, parental geographic relocations with minor children, prenuptial or post nuptial marital agreements, or any other issue relevant to a divorce or issues between unmarried partners.

Family law legal issues may relate to matters prior to a marriage, during the course of a marriage, while a marriage is coming to an end, after a divorce is finalized, and in the absence of marriage.

Many family law issues are amicably resolved through the process of mediation. Mediation may be entered into voluntarily or be ordered by the presiding judge in a family law case. It is important to note that even though the mediation will not be attended by the judge, the mediator does report to the judge regarding what issues have been able to be successfully resolved or not, whether or not both parties took the mediation process seriously, and if both parties actively worked to resolve the issues at hand, or if one or both partied refused to give any ground to accomplish a successful mediation process. Mediation is typically best served with your attorney presenting your arguments and negotiating on your behalf. If there are still disputed areas, the judge will either order the case back to mediation or hear the arguments of both parties and make rulings based on Ohio family law statutory guidelines.

Family Law Representation:  Depending on the specific family law issue or issues at hand, it is important that any and all arguments be presented effectively as reasonable and fair, our of necessary, and when children are involved that your arguments are in the best interest of the children.

When dealing with family law issues it is important to know how the law applies to your specific circumstances. All to often, individuals make quick reactions thinking they are doing the right thing, only to find out later that what they did was unlawful or could hinder his or her ability for a successful resolution. An example is when a mother refuses to allow the child's father to see his kids because he is behind in child support. This action by the mother may actually be considered a violation of the standing court order. On the other side of the coin, a father chooses not to pay child support because the mother has refused to allow or limits visitation for whatever reason. This not only violates the standing court order, but is unlawful as well.

Before you attempt to put your own spin on what you will or will not do involving a court order, we highly advise that you seek the legal advice and representation of legal counsel. There may be lawful remedies that will rectify your legal issues and problems. It is far better to know your rights and lawfully act, rather than implementing your own form of punishment or justice.

If you require professional legal services regarding divorce or family law legal issues, be proactive in protecting your legal rights by seeking the legal advice of an experienced Toledo family law attorney - lawyer. Contact the Law Offices of Seneca Weirich Harden, LLC by calling 419.509.7537.
