Going through a divorce is hard on you and the people you love. You want an advocate throughout the process who will fight for your legal rights and help you concentrate on the things that matter most. Finding the right attorney to handle your divorce can make all the difference. At the Sylvania Law Office of Melan M. Forcht, we make an effort to create good relationships with our clients during the most difficult times.

Unique Resolutions for Every Client
Contact the Law Office of Melan M. Forcht

In every divorce we handle, we encourage our clients to work things out amicably through mediation and negotiation. However, we also realize that working out a fair and just settlement is not always possible. We are always ready to fight for the best interests of our clients, which does mean going to trial when necessary.

One of the main reasons we encourage our clients to work out solutions on their own is that it gives them power over their own situation. If you decide to take a case to court, you are putting the future of your family in the hands of a judge. You do not want to let a judge decide what to do with your children. You want to come up with a plan that works for you and your entire family.

Understanding that every family is different, we work hard to come up with a unique and special resolution that is tailored to the needs of every client. When creating a plan for you and your family, we will advocate for your best interests in every issue that matters to you, including:

  • Child custody
  • Parenting time and visitation
  • Child support
  • Spousal support / alimony
  • Property division

Shared Parenting Plans

A shared parenting plan will give you and your spouse joint decision-making power when it comes to raising your children. We advocate for shared parenting plans because we believe both parents should have the opportunity to be equally involved in the lives of their children.

Property Division

When it comes to property division, Ohio believes in equitable distribution. Each party is entitled to fifty percent of all property, assets and debts accrued during the marriage. This includes 401ks and pension plans. However, your plan could vary from these guidelines, depending on a variety of factors. We will help you come up with a fair plan that works for you and your family.
