Child Custody Attorney Columbus, Ohio
Attorney for Child Custody Matters in Columbus, Ohio
When a family law conflict affects your children, the emotional and financial stress can seem overwhelming. As the parent of four children, Ralph Kerns understand that child custody and visitation issues can be some of the most heart-wrenching issues anyone will ever face.
We know that nothing can be more traumatic for a parent than losing the right to see his or her child. And, for children, nothing can make up for the absence of a beloved parent.
That is why we fight so hard to protect the rights of parents to child custody and visitation with their children. We use more than 30 years of legal experience to help parents achieve the best possible results in all types of child custody and visitation issues:
- Divorce: Child custody or parenting time is often one of the most contested issues in a divorce. We can help you negotiate shared parenting plans at the time of your divorce.
- Modification: When a parent relocates, or when a child's needs change, custody and visitation agreements may need to be modified or registered in a new state to remain in effect. We can help.
- Custody Evaluation: Sometimes circumstances change for the worse. A parent may develop a drug or alcohol problem that puts the children at risk. If so, we can arrange for an appropriate psychological evaluation of parents or other family members in order to find the best situation for the children. Whether you have lost custody and want it back or seek to arrange supervised visits with your children, we can help.
- Enforcement: When an existing court order is not being followed, we can take legal action to enforce child custody and visitation agreements. Whether you have lost custody and want it back or seek to arrange supervised visits with your children, we can help.
