DIVORCE & FAMILY LAW

  • Divorce: Divorce is the legal process by which a marriage is terminated. It can be through a contested process, uncontested process or through a Dissolution of Marriage whereby the parties enter into a divorce contract know as a Separation Agreement. If there are children of the marriage then a Parenting Plan would be necessary. Under certain circumstances a marriage can be annulled.
  • Custody and Visitation: Child custody is the determination of the custody and visitation rights of the respective parent. Incorporated herein would be the Child Support determination.
  • Grandparent visitation rights: All 50 states and the District of Columbia have enacted legislation enabling grandparents to petition the courts for visitation rights with grandchildren. The laws do not make granting of visitation rights automatic – they merely give grandparents the right to ask for a visitation order. Ohio courts encourage grandparent visitation when grandparents have difficulty securing visitation through their children.

    "Bilfield & Associates were very helpful in my application for Permanent Residency. My husband and I had tried to do it by ourselves and found it to be very stressful and confusing, not to mention the time and money we wasted. The team of lawyers made the process worry-free and I had my Permanent Residency Card in no time at all. Thanks again."

    "To whom it may concern:
    I had a serious MVA, resulting in a permanent and painful low back injury. After four years of trying to get my attorney to do something about the claim, my attorney's secretary informed me one day, that he had moved out of state, and that my case doctor had died. The attorney's office could not locate my file. At this time I contacted Murray Bilfield who took over my case. He was able to locate and recover my file from the A Dead Record@ section of the County Courthouse. In spite of these handicaps, Murray was able to revive my case, negotiate with the insurance company, and we were able to settle out the case for 90% of the insurance coverage.
    Without reservation, I would recommend Murray Bilfield, and have, to anyone in need of an excellent, skilled attorney."
