Lucy Shane is phenomenal. I came to her seeking guidance with my dissolution that turned into a divorce and nearly a difficult custody battle. She treated me with the utmost kindness, compassion, dignity, and respect, and I felt supported through this very painful time when it seemed like the world was against me. My divorce was granted today and I can't express my relief and gratitude enough. I highly recommend Lucy to anyone going through a divorce. Leigh Tennison is also wonderful. She answered all my questions, helped me with my paperwork, and is just as kind and compassionate. I'm so grateful and blessed to have worked with you both. Thank you for all you do, from the bottom of my heart.

I had a phenomenal experience here at Dmitriy Law Office! Henry Sonderman aka "Hank" was representing me for a shared parenting case for my daughter(she moved in with me)! Working with Hank was a breeze! If I would send a message Hank would be calling me back, sending me emails hounding me down to get me answers. This place knows how to value your time and understands your needs. There was another Lady helping named Leigh, and oh my gosh those two working together were a powerhouse! Everything was fast, efficient, and always correct. The other Law office I was using prior to Dmitriys office had taken 6 months to file my docs, and they ended up needing corrections so I knew I had to find another place fast. Once I found Hank over at Dmitirys Office I knew I was in good hands. Hank got my docs filed in just a few days with not one issue. This was the easiest process I have ever had with an attorney. This is the place you should want to represent you 100%! I highly recommend! Thanks again Hank!!!

When hiring an attorney, it???s a very scary step. You have to trust a complete stranger to protect, to listen and to do what is best for you. Dmitriy and his team went above and beyond to do just that. Every email, every interaction was intentional with a purpose, a plan based on what I wanted. There were times when I thought I should make a different change from the original plan, but Dmitriy quickly steered me back to why he was directing the conversations with my EX???s attorney a certain way. It was to ultimately protect me. From our very first encounter, I knew he was the right person to hire as my divorce attorney. On top of that he removed all the stress that I had been carrying and he put it on his shoulders. Oy! This was worth it???s weight in gold. I will be forever grateful for getting my life back as I move forward with hope. And just for the record, there really are good attorneys out there that really do care about people.

Dmitriy is awesome! I entered his office in complete distress and left feeling reassured and confident. He took the time to listen to me, ask detailed and specific questions and give me his professional opinion on the case and expert advice which he tailored to my specific needs. I hired him immediately and felt comforted knowing I had a fantastic lawyer that I could call/text day or night.

I was having hard time finding a good attorney who could speak Russian until I reached out to Dmitriy. He was able to translate and explain to me which made a smooth sailing process for me. They are very professional and polite with their clients. I’d highly recommended their services for everyone.

Best decision I ever made was reaching out to Dmitriy! He was professional, intentional, empathetic and very prompt with all communication with me. I remember him telling me the very first day when I met him, that I was not to be stressed, but all the stress was on his shoulders. Wait what? I truly didn’t understand what that meant. Basically, I put my life into Dmitriy’s hands, trusting his experience, his knowledge and knowing that he only cared about me and nothing else. He really made me feel protected and that is what I needed. When I tell you, he is the best attorney…I mean it from the bottom of my heart. You will not regret hiring this attorney. And just for the record, my stress has been released. Thank you, Dmitriy.

Making tough transitions easier with an experienced divorce attorney

The end of a partnership, especially marriage, is one of the most stressful events you will experience. As you attempt to progress forward with your life, many images and complex issues come to mind that will require your immediate attention. For example, consider how your future single life will turn out, how to divide property, and care arrangements for children (if any). Adjustment to sudden changes will result in various challenging emotions that can affect your judgement. You may be tortured by persistent concerns about whether your steps are the best options in the circumstances. An experienced divorce attorney can provide the advice you need to understand your options and help you make decisions that will benefit you in the future.

Divorce is a stressful and challenging time for both parents and children.

Unless you feel the need to take immediate action for critical reasons such as abuse, it might be worth taking the time to properly educate yourself on what to expect from the divorce process. A considered approach, without emotional decision-making, will help you move forward methodically and rebuild faster.

Think about kids, if they are involved, and your decision’s long-term impact on them. Next, carefully review your finances and housing situation, and decide if counseling could provide an opportunity to address your relationship issues.

Finally, if you decide to proceed and file for a divorce, our Columbus divorce lawyers will work to ease the challenging process and reduce the stress involved. We will walk beside you, providing the support you need while offering a practical resolution. Our experienced family law team will provide your family with comprehensive, honest legal counsel and personal attention to assist you through this challenging process.

Should you consult a divorce attorney in Columbus, Ohio?

Family law attorneys and divorce lawyers are experts in handling divorces and all family law matters that extend beyond marriage ending. In the past, divorce attorneys mainly dealt with marriage dissolutions, particularly helping clients reach decisions regarding issues such as alimony or division of any assets held by the couple.

Today, family law attorneys deal with various disputes, including issues between unmarried parties. Among the family law matters we can assist with:

Family

Do you and your partner have minor children together? Do you agree on child custody and support?

When a divorce involves parents with children under 18, they must decide on child custody. While there are only two common types of child custody, sole legal custody and joint legal custody, in terms of the rights of parents and the child’s best interests, there are also two other categories under which child custody rights fall, legal and physical.

In most states, the family law courts rule on child custody cases and set arrangements based on the child's best interest. This determination is usually based on factors such as:

Line

Parents must also discuss and agree on child support matters, including who will pay for the support, the amount, and how frequently payments will be made.

When divorcing parents can’t agree on these disputes, they will have to try mediation to reach an agreement or end up in a family court asking the judge to rule over it.

Do you and your partner agree on debts and property division?

Generally, in family law cases, the assets you acquire with your spouse during the marriage are considered marital property and must be divided fairly between you during a divorce.

Marital debts are treated similarly during family law matters and should be divided fairly. However, there are exceptions to debt distribution, when one spouse inappropriately wastes assets without consent or suffers debts that were never for the family’s benefit.

If the two of you have very little debt or property to divide, or if you can reach an agreement regarding marital property, including the value and division, you may be able to handle this part of the divorce yourself. However, if you’re facing a complex divorce and can’t agree or feel like you need some legal help, consulting an experienced family law attorney at the Law Office of Dmitriy Borshchak can help you navigate the process and achieve a successful result in your case.

Should you hire a divorce lawyer, or can you handle the divorce alone?

Once you and your spouse have decided to end your marriage, the next stage is to consider whether you can handle the process independently or need a family law lawyer.

Before deciding if you require a family law lawyer, you’ll need to consider a few other factors:

You can also opt for mediation as a way to resolve disputes. Other times, spouses realize they have no option but to hire a divorce attorney to guide them through the normal court process.

If you are still deciding which path to take during a divorce, remember that you can consult with an experienced attorney without committing to hiring one.
