Child Support/Spousal Support

Child support plays a crucial role in ensuring that children maintain an adequate standard of living. In Ohio, it is guided by a fundamental formula established by the state law. However, it’s important to note that there are additional factors to consider beyond the standard guidelines. Ohio law allows for deviation factors that can influence the child support calculation in certain circumstances. Our attorneys are well-versed in deviation factors and how to apply them. We also understand the difference between the judicial and administrative processes available when child support is an issue in your case. If you are looking for assistance in addressing your child support concerns, contact our office today.

Spousal support, formerly known as alimony, is a potential award granted by the Court to address income disparities and maintain the standard of living for a spouse. Determining spousal support involves considering multiple factors, extending beyond income levels, and each judge or magistrate exercises discretion in their analysis. It is crucial to seek guidance from an experienced attorney in understanding these specific policies. We are well-equipped to provide comprehensive support in navigating the implications, risks, and benefits associated with spousal support in your case.
