What Is Dissolution?

In Ohio, a couple goes through dissolution of their marriage when they agree to file a no-fault divorce, with or without children, and they are in agreement to all matters of the divorce.

This means that they agree to separate all of their real and personal property, assets and debts fairly, as well as to parenting time and child support. Dissolutions are generally not a long drawn out process as a contested or at-fault divorce can be.

Both spouses must sign the petition for dissolution, and go before the family court judge in a hearing to affirm that they are voluntarily in agreement to all terms of the petition. While it is a fairly straightforward process, there are precise steps and a timeline to follow, and it can get confusing.

At Mitchell A. Machan Law Office, we offer a flat rate to help you with dissolution of your marriage.
