Benefits of Dissolution of Marriage
A dissolution is a legal way to end a marriage through a non-adversarial and no-fault proceeding. Together, both spouses will come to an agreement on all terms of the divorce, including child custody and support, spousal support, distribution of marital property, and more. Once the terms have been agreed to, the spouses must then file a joint petition with the court in order for them to review and approve it. In the State of Ohio, at least one of the spouses must have been a resident for a minimum of six months before filing the petition.
Some of the benefits of filing for a dissolution of marriage rather than using litigation includes:
- Less expenses from filings, depositions, court hearings, and more
- Less conflict between the two parties both during and after the split
- Keeping your split more private from the public record
- Much faster from start to finalization
- Allowing both spouses more control over the terms
