Is Dissolution Right For Me?

To decide if you should pursue a dissolution or a more traditional divorce in Ohio, here are some questions to consider.

How Does Dissolution Differ From Divorce?

The easiest way to explain the difference between divorce and dissolution is that a dissolution is a contract where the two parties have mutual agreement on the issues. Whereas a divorce usually is more complicated and involves disagreement over the main issues such as property division, child custody and so on.

What If My Former Spouse And I Can't Agree?

If you and your former spouse don't (or won't) agree on the issues such as child custody, parenting time, co-parenting plans, division of assets, application of spousal support or other issues, dissolution is probably not an option. Agreement is key. Cooperation is needed to complete a dissolution.

What Are Some Advantages To Dissolution?

There are several reasons why someone would choose dissolution over divorce, including:

  • Time — Bitter divorces can drag out for years while couples argue over minute details that may or may not seem important after the fact. The sooner couples agree on how to move forward, the more time they can save and the sooner they can move on with their lives.
  • Money — You can save money in attorney's fees when you and your spouse agree on how to dissolve your marriage.
  • Emotional well-being — This is an important but, perhaps, less tangible factor in these cases. But if you can get something completed faster with less headaches and drain on your emotions, that will have a positive impact on your well-being.
