Dissolution: An Easier Approach To Divorcing

If both parties agree that ending their marriage is the best option, dissolution may be the best course of action.

Dissolution is often the cheapest, easiest and least stressful way to terminate a marriage. It does not require the same court proceedings as a typical divorce.

Understanding Dissolution In Ohio

In Ohio, dissolution (sometimes referred to by laypeople as no-fault divorce) is a jointly made request where both parties agree to dissolve their marriage. With a dissolution, there is no plaintiff or defendant. Together, the couple files a petition asking the court to end their marriage.

However, all issues, including parenting time, child support, spousal support, and division of assets and debts must be resolved via a separation agreement before a petition for dissolution can be filed.

A Separation Agreement: What It Entails

A separation agreement essentially is a written document signed by both parties that contains provisions regarding all aspects of the marriage such as the division of property, spousal support, child support and custody arrangements.
