Delaware Ohio Divorce Attorney

Your life is about to change in a big way.

You are reading this page because you are looking to make some big changes in your life – or maybe it’s your significant other has decided to change it for you. There are probably a lot of thoughts going through your head, as life will not be the same again. Your future doesn’t look as clear as it used to, or maybe it’s hard to see your future at all.

At times like this, it’s best to have a plan, a direction to head towards so we are not fumbling around in the dark and losing our way. That’s where I come in. I’m the guy that’s going to help you create the new plan for your new life. Whether you are looking for a divorce, dissolution, or involved in a child custody battle in Delaware, Ohio (basically all areas of family law), I will be there to help shed some light on what the future can hold for you.

Here are just a few plans I can help you carry out.

Family Law

Family law is this encompassing area of law that covers everything from termination of marriages to child support, alimony or spousal support and stepparent adoptions. For example, one case in Delaware I was hired to fight was a contested stepparent adoption. Most stepparents adopt their children because the biological parent is not around. In this case, the father was around and did not want to lose his rights. We had to go to trial twice and came out victorious, two years later. You can see his testimonial below.


No two divorce cases are the same, so there’s no magic path to follow. Everyone’s individual needs are different. I consider your needs, your life goals, your mitigating circumstances, and your resources in consideration when putting together the best plan to fit your desired future. If you’re not sure quite what your goals are, we will sit down and create the plan together so your future will look a little less hazy and a little more promising.

Child Custody

When making a plan for the future, it’s not just our lives that are affected, especially when it comes to children. While deciding what is best for your life, you must also decide what is best for their life. Making a plan for one person is hard enough, thus I’m here to ensure that your plan works out best for all the parties involved while following the laws in Delaware, Ohio.


Sometimes your big life change isn’t decided in a court room. Some families are able to work out a few details on their own, but that doesn’t mean they should. In Delaware, Ohio it’s best to have a lawyer help create your own plan and or to look over the details of your spouse’s plan before signing any papers; because once you sign on the dotted line, your future is set in stone. Let’s make sure that stone is exactly what you want, not just today but for years to come as well.

If you’re still not sure about hiring me for your family law case, just ask one of my clients Kevin:

“My adoption trial was located in Delaware County so I was looking for a family law attorney familiar with Delaware. I hit the jackpot with Jack and from the first day I met him, Jack Carney-DeBord, changed my life. Right away he made sure I was comfortable and understood the sobering truth of what could happen if I lost my case.  I should also mention, I suffer from severe social anxiety too! That means a lot to someone who is not comfortable around strangers, trust me. I was a nervous wreck thinking of the possibility of losing my children. Jack could tell right away how much my kids meant to me and decided to represent me. He got to work right away filing at the court and all his attorney magic he does”

“Jack changed my life, my children’s lives and all my family’s. I could write you  four pages why you should have Jack represent you and the impact he has had on my life. I think to sum it up though, it’s very rare to find an attorney who genuinely CARES for his clients and their lives like Jack does.”
