Would suggest you get someone from out of town. Someone who will not let you get taken like some do and then charge you a huge fee on top of it. They are going to get paid no matter you end up with, so get the most for your money!

No matter who your attorney is, you should know that some stuff is dictated by law. Child support is based on income. You may have to pay alimony, again based on income and how long you were married. You may be required to continue to have your children on your health insurance. The state has formulas for calculating child support and alimony and these have to be followed.
I kind of agree that you might want someone from out of town, I have heard there are some good divorce attys in Lima. Good luck.

Sorry, I don't know any Lima attys, I have just heard there are some good ones there.
I used Ed Hatcher for my divorce, he did a good job for me, but my divorce wasn't nasty and there were no kids involved. He did look out for my interests very well.

Use a local attorney who knows all the other attorneys and they all know the magistrate very well.

I am male and about your age and I have full custody of my 2 children. It wasn't cheap but you have to protect your rights. A lot of the basic stuff is all going to be the same no matter who you use. biggest deal is making sure your lawyer keeps you from getting screwed. there usually is no reason that it shouldn't be split equally. I have used Johnson and carcione 3 times. They are some of the best. The majority of what they do is family law. Yes, I use a female lawyer. There is a reason behind that because it just looks good in court to have a female lawyer representing a male in a divorce and custody case. Make sense?

He is really no longer practicing. Bad Health of course. I am sorry he didn't do a very good job for you. He got me full custody of two very very young children from their mother. If he wouldn't of held his ground, it never would have happened. His partner Collette Carcione is really just a wonderful lawyer. I am using her for several cases right now and she is really good in court.

Totally agree Johnson you do not want. Someone I knew was in a nursing home for a period of time and needed some advise on a matter. They called his office and before he would even consider helping them,he wanted them to give him a credit card so he could charge them $500 up front before he would even speak with them. How pathetic!

Hands down for a divorce would be Kelly Rauch. She is THE BEST attorney for a divorce, and also is now known for being one of Van Werts best period !

Who is this? Kelly Rauch? LOL The original poster is a dude. If he hired her, she would actually try to help his wife out instead of him. Kelly Rauch also has a horrible horrible record in domestic cases in Van Wert. She was my ex wife's attorney and I could have done a better job than her. The Magistrate literally mocked her, basically made her look like an unprofessional idiot, and scolded her for claiming she needed to leave in the middle of our hearing because she was due in paulding court at the same time. Her entire interrogation of me was to establish how much child support I would have to pay. This was in a court hearing to determine custody. Yes for real. Right in front of everybody. Instead of arguing or trying to get custody, she assumed my wife would get it and actually put my child support info on record in court. I was watching the magistrate and his jaw was practically dropped.

I would never use Kelly rauch for anything legal that could be contested. She is a terrible terrible lawyer.
Hmmmm

Shaun Putman handled a custody issue and was amazing. He is honest but willing to get dirty if need be. The younger Hatcher handled my divorce and I was deeply disappointed in him.
