In addition, our firm is one of the few law firms in Ohio with attorneys that have experience litigating international custody and Hague Convention cases. These Federal Court cases are often extremely complex. As Ohio Family Law Attorneys, we also represent individuals in adoption proceedings in Probate Court. Those adoptions may involve a step-parent adoption or adoptions of a child to a third party. We also have the expertise to assist individuals looking for a prenuptial agreement before getting married.
