Compassionate Family Law Guidance
The attorneys of Roderick Linton Belfance, LLP‘s Family Law Group understand that the ending of a marriage is an emotionally charged time when an individual requires the guidance of experienced counsel. We focus on resolving disputes without unnecessary litigation, but in those situations where settlement is not in our client’s best interest, our attorneys are aggressive litigators with a reputation for achieving results.
Our Family Law Group is comprised of a team of lawyers possessing decades of experience in dealing with every issue surrounding the practice of domestic relations law. We practice in the courts of Summit, Stark, Portage and Medina counties and have become well-known for excellent representation through the thousands of cases we have handled.
Offering Comprehensive Family Law Services
We take pride in being a full service domestic relations law firm, offering advice and guidance beginning with the important decisions prior to filing for divorce or dissolution, and continuing to safeguard clients’ interests through the divorce process.
We assist with contested issues regarding the division of marital property, custody, child support and spousal support. Even beyond the initial divorce, we continue to provide advice, counseling and representation through any necessary appeals and in post-decree actions, including modifications to child and spousal support.
Outside of the marriage relationship, Roderick Linton Belfance, LLP, routinely handles matters regarding paternity and parentage, child support, adoptions (including international adoptions), stepparent adoptions, grandparents’ and third-party rights, and civil domestic violence.
Successfully Managing Complex Divorces
Our lawyers’ wealth of experience, combined with our team approach, uniquely positions our firm to expertly guide clients through every stage of the divorce process and to overcome obstacles blocking achievable goals.
We are well-positioned to tackle even the most complex cases involving high net worth individuals and businesses. We routinely deal with high-asset divorce proceedings and the division of complex assets, including businesses, real estate holdings, securities, pensions, retirement assets and assets that have been hidden by a spouse in contemplation of divorce.
Strategic Premarital And Postmarital Planning
While the consequences of a marriage’s termination are often dictated by the territorial laws in effect at the time the marriage ends, that does not have to be the case. In addition to our other family law services, we provide both premarital and postmarital planning for termination of a marriage.
Such planning may include prenuptial agreements and estate planning, whereby the client can achieve a greater degree of control over future division and distribution of property and payment of support in the event of death or divorce.
