Domestic Relations: Family Law And Divorce With A Focus On A Collaborative Approach

Domestic Relations described in the Ohio Revised Code include marriage, divorce, and parental rights and responsibilities. Many reasonable people seek ways to resolve disputes in these areas without engaging in costly litigation or bitter courtroom battles. Collaborative law methods are a wise choice for many people. The Anelli Law Firm, LLC, in Columbus advises and represents Ohio residents in collaborative law settings as well as in other formats such as mediation or traditional divorce.

Facing A Separation Or Divorce? Your Priorities Are The Starting Point.

Hearing what is on your mind is the first order of business during your initial consultation with family law attorney Dianna M. Anelli.

You may be naturally concerned about how to protect your children's interests as well as your parental rights. You may want to secure your role as the custodian of your children, especially if you have been the more involved parent during your marriage or domestic partnership.

You may be worried about child support and/or spousal support (alimony). How will you manage financially without your provider spouse's income in the household? If you will pay support, how will you ensure that the court order is for a reasonable sum?

You may be thinking about property division. What will become of the marital home, bank account and other valuable assets? How will retirement funds be split?

Allegations of domestic violence or child abuse may be an issue that can have legal repercussions. Has your spouse accused you of harassment or abuse? Have you experienced threats or physical harm by your partner or spouse?

Benefits Of Collaborative Law

The most satisfactory resolution to dilemmas such as these may come about through collaborative law. If you and your spouse are committed to this process, you may experience benefits, including:

  • Private, out-of-court decision-making on your own schedule
  • A family-centered approach aimed at a resolution that keeps you and your children at the center
  • An opportunity to learn to communicate civilly with your soon-to-be ex-spouse throughout the years ahead of co-parenting

The agreements you make in collaborative law settings will translate to a document to be presented to family court. If negotiations fail before reaching this conclusion, both parties must start over with new lawyers. This built-in incentive toward a mutually agreed upon settlement is one of the strengths of collaborative law.
