Experienced Divorce Attorneys

It seems that everyone has heard a horror story about a divorce that went off the rails. The spouses thought they had most of the issues settled at their dining room table … until the lawyers got involved.

If you are considering filing for divorce in Crawford County or a nearby community in north central Ohio, make sure your attorneys understand that the first word in family law is family. Turn to the lawyers of Hottenroth, Garverick, Tilson & Garverick, Co., L.P.A., in Galion. We are a team of experienced divorce and dissolution lawyers who will work hard to find practical solutions that protect your rights and financial interests, always seeking to avoid expensive and emotional litigation whenever possible.

Knowledge To Avoid Trial When Possible, Experience To Win When Necessary
“Ohio courts expect spouses and attorneys to do everything possible to resolve issues outside of trial. In most cases, we find a commonsense solution that is in our clients’ best interests. But in the event some disputed issues must go to trial, we offer our clients a legal team with more than 100 combined years of courtroom experience.” Attorney E. Richard Hottenroth

Extensive Experience In Every Area Of Divorce

Divorce typically includes these broad issues that must be addressed:

  • Prejudgment separation agreements, including living arrangements, visitation rights, temporary child support and spousal maintenance. We listen to your concerns about protecting your rights and your financial interests. We use our experience and knowledge of court expectations to resolve complex disputes in an agreement that may serve as the foundation for the final divorce settlement.
  • Divorce judgment property settlement, including title transfer of the primary residence, retirement and pensions’ savings and complex issues such as business ownership and investment securities.
  • Custody and parenting rights when minor-age children are involved, including joint or shared custody arrangements, mandatory and voluntary child support and parenting schedules.
  • Spousal support, including temporary alimony and support to address a specific need or period of time. In cases of a long-term marriage, there may be “permanent” alimony awarded, but it is not typical.
