Rittman Divorce Attorney

Rittman Divorce AttorneyWhat is a Rittman divorce attorney?  A Rittman divorce lawyer provides representation for divorce, dissolution, post-decree motions, paternity complaint, child custody, child support, civil protection orders, and  motion to modify parental rights and responsibilities.

Where both parents are Rittman residents, such cases would originate in the Wayne County Domestic Relations Court, 107 W. Liberty Street, Wooster, Ohio 44691.  This article will limit the scope to outlining the basic hearings for  divorces, dissolutions, and paternity cases, but does not set out every possible motion or procedure in such cases.

A divorce in the Wayne County Domestic Relations Court starts with the filing of a complaint, accompanied by a number of affidavits, and usually a request for temporary orders.  Wayne County may either decide temporary orders based on the initial affidavits or may do so after a temporary orders hearing.  Later, a Status One Hearing is conducted, where the attorneys tell the magistrate the issues involved in the case.  The Status Two and Pre-Trial conferences usually consist of a more detailed analysis, usually accompanied by detailed written breakdowns of the issues.  If the matter does not settle by this point, it proceeds to final hearing, or trial.  The magistrate hears the trial, which can later be reviewed by the judge at the request of the parties.  Otherwise the judge will simply review and approve the magistrate’s decision.

A dissolution in Wayne County Domestic Relations Court starts with a petition for dissolution, accompanied by signed agreements and affidavits.  The matter is set out for a hearing.  A certified copy of the dissolution decree is quickly approved and mailed out to the attorneys of record.

A paternity action in Wayne County Juvenile Court starts with a paternity complaint.  The matter is set for an initial hearing.  Temporary orders can be set at the initial hearing.  While many cases reach a settlement at the pretrial or trial, some proceed to an evidentiary hearing at the final hearing.
