Advocating for your family’s rights

Charles Tyler has been helping Ohio families with their family law issues for 10 years. Whether anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the pain of marital conflict, Charles creates solutions.

He can help you with:

  • Adoption
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Child visitation
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Paternity
  • Support modifications


Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but a biological parent’s change of heart or an immigration fiasco can turn a joyous occasion into a nightmare. Charles assists families with the complex legal procedures and frustrating red tape of the adoption process so you can focus on your new family member.

Prenuptial agreements

When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee potential problems that can lead to divorce. Charles expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and alleviates some of the stress should you ever divorce.


Through mediation or litigation, Charles seeks to obtain the best possible settlement or judgment for his clients, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Child custody

For many parents, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. Charles advocates for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit, caring home.

Child visitation

If you are the noncustodial parent, divorce should not force you to miss the important milestones in your children’s lives. Charles ensures you are given the opportunity to spend the quality time with your children required to encourage their strong growth and development.

Child support

Both parents share in the responsibility of raising children. Charles upholds your children’s rights to receive the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing, while ensuring that the financial burden is divided fairly between both parents.

Spousal support

Getting divorced is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Charles helps to establish fair and equitable spousal support, allowing you to continue to live as comfortably as before your marriage ended.


Charles understands the unique role science plays in child custody, child visitation and child support cases. A positive result can help you prove your fatherhood so you can reunite with your biological children and affirm your claim to custody and visitation. A paternity test can conclusively prove you are not the father of a child so you can avoid a lifetime of unfairly paying child support. If you are a mother seeking child support, Charles guides you through the complex court proceedings to legitimize an unwilling father.

Support modification

Sometimes the unexpected happens — a lost job or a sudden injury — yet you remain obligated to pay child support despite your changed financial circumstances. In other cases, your former spouse receives a huge financial windfall or promotion that should contribute toward your children’s upbringing. Charles can successfully obtain a modification of your child support order so your children’s financial support is more fairly shared between you and your former spouse.
