Columbus Custody & Visitation Lawyer

Overview

As I grew up, I knew I wanted a job that was different every day and where I could help people in times of stress. Since I wasn’t a math guy being a doctor was out, so I decided to be a lawyer. Becoming a lawyer was not easy, but once I take on a challenge, I don’t back down.

I apply the same philosophy towards practicing as a lawyer...

As I grew up, I knew I wanted a job that was different every day and where I could help people in times of stress. Since I wasn’t a math guy being a doctor was out, so I decided to be a lawyer. Becoming a lawyer was not easy, but once I take on a challenge, I don’t back down.

I apply the same philosophy towards practicing as a lawyer. I make it my job to pay careful attention to each client, to not only guide each one through the legal process, but make sure every decision made is an informed decision.

Robert L. Caplan is an experienced Columbus bankruptcy and family law attorney who has helped individuals central Ohio families since 1994. I help people file for debt relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

Bankruptcy is a federal law allowing individuals to discharge his or her liabilities and get a fresh start. Debt relief is only a phone call away. I can help you get started.

By filing a bankruptcy you can:

  • Stop harassing phone calls
  • Stop garnishments
  • Stop lawsuits and prevent the filing of new ones
  • Stop bank account attachments
  • Stop collection activities
  • Discharge debts such as credit cards, medical bills and others
  • Prevent the shutoff of utilities and discharge utility arrearages

Provided you qualify, there are two types of consumer bankruptcies that individuals and families can file. One is a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and the other is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

Family law is any case dealing with divorce, uncontested divorce, dissolution, child custody or visitation. I am an experienced lawyer who can guide you through the process for a reasonable price. I can help people who:

  • Need a Court order to establish rules
  • Have lived separate and apart and need to "make it official"
  • Don't think they can afford to get divorced
  • Believe they can only get divorced if their spouse goes to court

GIVE ME A CALL....Why pay more than you should??

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
