Dissolution Of Marriage
Benefits Of Choosing Marriage Dissolution Over Contested Divorce
The easiest, fastest, and least expensive way to end a marriage in the State of Ohio is through an uncontested dissolution of marriage. Unlike a contested divorce, this method does not require litigation, as both parties agree to all aspects of the split, including child visitation agreements, child and spousal support, distribution of property, and more.
To be eligible for a dissolution of marriage in Ohio, you must have been a resident of the state for a minimum of six months and agreed to all terms with your spouse. Once these qualifications have been met, there is a mandatory 30 day waiting period before it can be finalized.
Some of the benefits of an uncontested dissolution of marriage over a contested divorce are:
- A much quicker process
- Having more control over the terms of your dissolution
- Less expense, and the ability to avoid numerous costs for hearings, depositions, document filing, and more
- Keeping the aspects of your split private
- A more amicable, less-stressful, and more hassle-free way to end the marriage
