Understanding The Divorce Process In Ohio

To file for divorce, one party must allege statutory grounds. No-fault grounds for divorce include:

  • Alleging that the parties have lived separate and apart for one year (or more)
  • Alleging that the parties are incompatible and neither party denies the incompatibility

Fault allegations can include adultery, extreme cruelty, neglect of duty and a number of others.

To begin the divorce process, you must file a complaint for divorce with the court and have paperwork served upon the other party. Your spouse will then file a response, if he or she intends to participate in the process.

Once the answer is filed, the court determines what issues need to be resolved. In many cases, the parties are able to amicably resolve some if not all the issues through mediation. If any issues remain unresolved, the court will hold a trial and listen to evidence in order to make a decision.
