Divorce & Child Custody

The Law office of Albert L. Potter II will provide full divorce and custody representation to individuals throughout the Northwest Ohio area.  As your Divorce Attorney, Mr. Potter can provide legal support with regard to all aspects of child custody and divorce, from initial separation agreements to modifications of orders after the final decrees.

Whenever possible, Mr. Potter will recommend using collaborative family law methods to resolve disputes arising from divorce and custody issues. Such an approach is less expensive and less combative than litigating. This enables the divorcing couple to remain in control of the process. Collaborative law focuses on solving problems, and results in less emotional tension and disruption for any children involved. Our office will always strive to act in the best interests of children. We encourage our divorce and custody clients to consider using this approach.
