Getting divorced is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Our attorneys can help you establish fair and equitable spousal support, allowing you to continue to live as comfortably as before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation
For any parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Our divorce lawyers advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.

Child support
Both parents share in the responsibility of raising a child. At The McQuades Co., L.P.A. our attorneys do everything possible to help your child receive the financial support they need for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly.

Our attorneys stand by you throughout your divorce. We obtain the best possible results in court or at the negotiation table, and we have extensive experience handling issues such as the fair distribution of assets, the division of a marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Ohio authorities interfere with your parent/child relationship, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape.  The McQuades Co., L.P.A.  is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Ohio to protect your parental rights and your child’s future.

Mediation puts the decisions in your hands and often provides more expedient, predictable results than court trials produce. The skilled negotiators at The McQuades Co., L.P.A. can help you obtain a favorable divorce settlement.

Prenuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can lead to divorce. The lawyers at The McQuades Co., L.P.A. expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests. Having an agreement in place can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
