Ohio Dissolution Process

Columbus, Reynoldsburg And Whitehall Ohio Dissolution Attorney

Here in Ohio, we have several legal options for bringing your marriage to an end. There is the typical contested divorce, a “dissolution”, and an uncontested divorce. Each legal vehicle has unique attributes and it takes an experienced divorce attorney to make the right recommendation for your unique situation.

A dissolution provides a faster way for an Ohio marriage to be concluded than a standard divorce. A dissolution usually takes from 90 to 120 days, and helps to keep legal costs at a minimum. In a dissolution I can only represent one of the parties. The couple must be in complete agreement on every issue relating to the distribution of assets and liabilities, children (if any) and all items contained within the “separation agreement.” A dissolution is an effective vehicle even if you have substantial assets, business ownership or a large family.

When a couple goes to court, such as in a contested divorce, they are in the hands of our local magistrates or judges. They lose control over the process and ultimately the outcome in their case. A dissolution provides a great alternative where the couple can work together to decide how things will be handled, and ultimately create the future life both parties can live with. Usually this helps to build a working partnership that will continue on if the parties share children, and keeps both the emotional and financial impact at a minimum.

In a dissolution, your Ohio family law attorney can only represent one of the parties. I will work with you to discuss the issues that are important to you, and share strategies to help you reach an agreement with your spouse.
