A Smarter Approach To Family Law
Making any change in your family situation is scary — especially a change as big as divorce or a child custody dispute. It is important to remember, however, that endings can make way for new beginnings.
At Sunny M. Simon, Attorney at Law, our job is to help ease you through these transitions and set you up for success going forward. We take the time to understand your needs and goals. Then, we strategize with you to meet those goals in the way that works best for you and your children. Through it all, we strive to save you time, money and undue stress.
Divorce And Related Matters
We offer a wide variety of services, including representation in:
- Traditional litigated divorce
- Collaborative divorce (a less contentious alternative to litigation)
- Dissolution of marriage
- Spousal support (also called alimony)
- Name changes
- Prenuptial agreements
- Post-decree modifications to court orders
Matters Involving Children
Divorce can be especially difficult for kids, but it doesn’t have to be traumatizing. Attorney Sunny M. Simon will guide you sensitively through all matters that directly affect your children and your relationship to them, including:
- Child custody
- Juvenile law issues
- Child support
- Step-parent adoptions
- Modifications to child custody and child support orders
Pet Custody: A New Frontier In Family Law
While there are laws protecting the well-being of children in divorce, pets are another matter. In most states (including Ohio), pets are regarded as property — little different than furniture or dishes. Yet pet owners understand that their pets are members of the family.
In the absence of pet custody laws, it is up to parties to reach their own agreements with the help of their attorneys. One service that sets our practice apart is our use of negotiated pet custody agreements for clients who request them. Sunny M. Simon is the founder and director of the South Euclid Humane Society, and she is proud to advocate for animals and the humans who love them.
