Family Law Disputes
Family law covers a range of legal issues, including:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Property division
To be eligible for divorce in Ohio, the spouse filing for divorce must have resided in the state for at least 6 months prior to filing. Ohio recognizes fault-based divorces (divorce based on one spouse’s misconduct, such as adultery) and no-fault divorces.
Cross Law Office can take a closer look at your situation to determine the steps you need to take for your divorce and how to resolve your related family law disputes, from drafting a favorable co-parenting plan to protecting your assets during distribution.
Estate Planning Matters
Another important area of the law that our firm takes care of is estate planning. Wills, trusts, and powers of attorney are all estate planning tools that can help you protect your estate in the future and bestow the proper rights to your heirs and beneficiaries.
Cross Law Office can help you better understand what estate planning tools you should take advantage of based on your situation. Generally, most individuals will consider the following:
- A will – A “last will and testament” can specify who you want to leave your property to upon your death, a personal guardian for your minor children, a trusted individual to manage any property left behind, and an executor to oversee the will after your death.
- A trust – A revocable trust is funded with property (e.g., bank accounts, real estate) that will be bestowed upon named beneficiaries after your death.
- A Power of Attorney (POA) – A legal document allowing a named agent to make certain medical decisions for the principal, such as about a medical procedure, treatment, intervention, or other measure.
Debt Collection, Real Estate, and Personal Injury
Our experienced attorneys can assist you with collection of debts owed to you. This includes claims of unjust enrichment, breach of contract, and breaches of settlement agreements. Our attorneys have the knowledge and skills to find creative ways to collect money owed to you.
Our attorneys also can assist with real estate matters, including title searches, drafting deeds, drafting transfer on death affidavits, and drafting lease agreements.
Personal Injury matters can have permanent impacts on the lives of our clients and their families. Contact our staff to assist with car/motorcycle accidents, slip-and-falls, medical malpractice, and other personal injury related claims.
