Akron Divorce Attorney:
Experienced, Supportive, Caring

The Akron, Ohio divorce lawyers within the law firm of Skidmore & Associates understand that today’s families are under more stress and pressure than any prior generation.  Our Akron attorneys provide supportive and caring legal advice to couples and families contemplating divorce, dissolution, or legal separation. Spouses have to balance competing (sometimes conflicting) objectives of attaining financial stability and performing spousal/parental duties.  The day-to-day rigors begin to tug on the essence of the nuclear family.  The inability to cope with the stress and pressure fosters marital discord.
