Lake County Divorce Lawyers
Friendly Settlement When Possible, Aggressive Litigation When Necessary
In a family conflict, the best results are achieved if the dispute can be resolved through reasonable negotiation between the parties. That being said, there are some situations where friendly negotiation is impossible.
At the law firm of Sternberg & Zeid Co., LPA in Mentor, Ohio, our attorneys provide experienced legal representation for familial disputes – whether those disputes must be resolved in the courtroom or at the negotiating table.
Each of our attorneys has more than 30 years of experience handling a wide range of legal matters. We can effectively serve you.
Our firm is available to help clients throughout Northeast Ohio with a range of family law matters, including:
- Divorce : We handle legal separations, contested and uncontested divorces, and dissolution of marriage. We help our clients with all issues related to the divorce, including valuation and equitable property division addressing assets and debts, child custody, child support, parenting time and spousal support (alimony).
- Child custody and support : Parents have rights and responsibilities for their children regardless of whether the parents are married. Our lawyers help parents file paternity actions, obtain parental rights such as parenting time or shared parenting (joint custody), and obtain orders for child support from the noncustodial parent of the child.
- Stepparent adoptions : When a stepparent serves as a primary caregiver for children, stepparent adoption may be a natural development. Adoption can protect the relationship between stepparent and child, regardless of what life circumstances may develop. Stepparent adoptions are relatively easy in Ohio, if both the child’s natural parents consent to the adoption or if the other natural parent has not communicated with the child or financially supported the child for one year before the adoption petition is filed.
