Wayne County Divorce Attorney

A Wayne County divorce attorney represents individuals in Wayne County 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 Wayne County residents, such cases would originate in the Wayne County Domestic Relations Court, 107 W. Liberty Street, Wooster, Ohio 44691.  A divorce in the Wayne County Domestic Relations Court starts with the filing of a complaint and often a request for temporary orders, both of which must be served by summons to the opposing party.  Temporary orders, if granted, temporarily resolve issues such as child custody, parenting time with the children, child support, spousal support, and exclusive use of the marital residence and vehicles.
