Family Law Overview


Experienced Divorce and Custody Attorney

Even couples who want an amicable divorce get deadlocked on issues.  If you are not on good terms, these differences are magnified. John M. Dohner is recognized by the courts, past clients, and fellow attorneys as being highly adept at resolving the most difficult and complex cases and ushering clients through, what can be, a long and frustrating process to positive outcomes.

Mr. Dohner is certified by the Ohio Bar as a Specialist in Family Relations Law, the focus of his practice for more than 25 years.  Contact our office to arrange a consultation today.  The Dohner Law Firm represents men and women in Akron, Summit County, and surrounding counties. See our Case Summaries page to learn more.

Your Ohio Divorce

Mr. Dohner will explain the divorce process — his role and what to expect at each stage.  He offers sophisticated divorce planning to put clients on solid financial ground during and after relevant legal proceedings.

We handle all aspects of divorce, contested or uncontested:

  • High-Asset Divorce — Mr. Dohner has extensive experience in divorces involving professional practices and business valuations, separate vs. joint property, and creative trade-offs to reach a settlement.
  • Custody and Visitation — As courts are moving toward shared parenting, Mr. Dohner asserts your wishes and protects your child's best interests while helping to craft a workable solution.
  • Interstate Custody — We provide local counsel to parents who live outside of Ohio and represent either party in petitions to relocate beyond Ohio with the kids.
  • Child Support — We represent your interests in determination, modification, or enforcement of court-ordered support.
  • Spousal Support — Mr. Dohner's familiarity with the tendencies of local courts can be a big advantage in this discretionary area of the law.
  • Prenuptial Agreements — John Dohner carefully drafts or reviews premarital agreements to protect assets brought to a new marriage.

At the Dohner Law Firm, we understand the sensitive and confidential nature needed to effectively handle our clients’ family law issues.  We are eager to assist our clients and establish a fruitful relationship that will ensure the most adequate, effective, and harmonious resolution of whatever legal issues may be affecting you and your family.  Contact us today at 330.376.6300.  We have evening and weekend appointments available in Akron and Hudson.
