Experienced Dayton, Ohio Divorce Lawyers

We can help all parties achieve some measure of mental and emotional relief
The dissolution of a marriage involves crucial decisions about the welfare of your children and the equitable division of your assets. Kirkland & Sommers has more than 60 combined years of experience in divorce law.
We consider all aspects of your divorce case as we develop the best possible solutions regarding:
  • Child custody and visitation rights
  • Child support
  • Distribution of personal property, bank accounts, stocks and other assets
  • Division of marital debts
  • Sale or possession of the marital home
  • Spousal support and temporary support
Dedicated to your children’s well-being
Parents must consider how divorce affects not only them but also their children — both emotionally and financially. We help you obtain a fair and reasonable child support arrangement that enables you to raise your children in a safe and healthy environment.
We help parents:
  • Understand child support guidelines
  • Negotiate child support through mediation
  • Litigate child support issues
  • Modify child support orders
  • Enforce child support orders
Our attorneys can help you understand the basis and structure of these guidelines and how they apply to you. We can help you obtain support payments that best fit your financial circumstances and which most appropriately provide for your child’s needs.
Mediation and litigated child support
Through the structured process of mediation, couples can put aside their differences and focus on the one objective where they tend to agree — their children’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that enable both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. Our skilled negotiators can guide the process toward equitable solutions.
In some cases, litigation is necessary for your child to receive fair financial support from both parents. Our attorneys methodically prepare for litigation to achieve the most equitable support arrangement for your child.
Enforcement and modification of child support
If your spouse has fallen behind on child support payments, you may need assistance to collect the money that rightfully belongs to your child. At Kirkland & Sommers, we guide you through the process of enforcing your child support order.
If you incur financial problems, we can help you petition the court to modify your child support order. Our attorneys can help you expeditiously process a modification of your child support order so that you and your former spouse more equitably share in the expenses of raising your child.
Effective family law mediators
Mediation gives you and your spouse the opportunity to negotiate a divorce settlement in a structured setting through a trained facilitator. The mediation process fosters cooperation between partners, and it removes the unpredictability and uncertainty associated with litigation. Mediation often reduces the time and costs of divorce, and it puts the decisions in your hands. Kirkland & Sommers, L.P.A. can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement, fair child support agreement and healthy child custody arrangement.

Through tactical trial strategies and professional courtroom presence, Kirkland & Sommers successfully represents clients through the entire adversarial litigation process. We are prepared to methodically handle the complex aspects of your divorce so as to obtain the most favorable trial outcome.
