Understanding Divorce In Ohio
In some instances, divorcing parties can resolve their differences in opinion amicably. In other situations, conflicts become prolonged, unhealthy, ultimately indefensible and divorce is unavoidable.
In the state of Ohio, divorce is categorized into several different areas. Such classes include:
- Fault-based divorce, in which one party files for divorce and alleges fault on the part of the other based on certain grounds
- Uncontested, where both parties allege no-fault and are able to finalize a harmonious agreement without direction from the court, or a situation where fault exists but one party fails to agree or respond to the petition
- Contested divorce, in which both parties come to an impasse regarding certain issues pertaining to the marriage and the matters are presented to and ultimately determined by a judge
Divorce Involving Military Personnel
It's also important to note the differences in handling a divorce when active military personnel are involved. There are intricate rules involving residency requirements, and those pertaining to division of military pensions, among other requisites.
Which class and applicable rules that will apply to you will depend on your unique situation.
