Columbus Child Custody & Visitation Lawyers

We Protect the Best Interests of Your Family

Children are the most valuable asset of any marriage. In any divorce or dissolution, their best interests should be paramount. Unfortunately, the welfare of children can sometimes take a back seat to heated disputes over the division of marital property and assets.

At the Law Offices of William L. Geary, we have been helping concerned parents put their children first for nearly 25 years. The attorneys at our firm work hard to protect our clients’ rights and goals while looking out for the best interests of their children.

We are adept at identifying multiple options for providing the best arrangement for each child in a complex or high-asset divorce. We integrate creative child support scenarios to find child custody solutions that work.

What You Should Know

Child custody and visitation rights are protected by law, regardless of complexity of the matter.

Child custody rights apply to the following situations:

  • Second marriages
  • Domestic partnerships
  • Same-sex relationships after a divorce
  • Threats of retaliation from former spouses
  • Disputes over religion, politics, or employment

Courts tend to favor shared parenting arrangements as being in the best interests of children of divorce. Under the unusual circumstances where there is an allegation of child abuse, neglect, or domestic violence, the powerful advocacy of an experienced and effective child custody lawyer is essential to ensure a proper and just outcome of the matter.

Here in Columbus and throughout Central Ohio, courts are working to establish parenting plans for visitation that spread quality time evenly between both parents, while reflecting the natural rhythms and existing schedules of the children’s lives. Attorney Geary brings more than 35 years of experience to these discussions and can help to provide creative insight based upon this experience to help find the best possible solution for parenting time with your child(ren).
