What are the benefits of dissolution?

Ending a marriage does not have to be a messy, contentious affair. In fact, many Ohio couples hope to remain on friendly terms, whether for their children or simply because they appreciate each other's friendship. Although popular media often portrays couples battling it out over property, support payments and other matters, you can reach the same results -- ending your marriage -- through dissolution. 

Compared to divorce, dissolution is a more peaceful approach to things. Instead of going through the court, you and your soon-to-be ex can reach an agreement on your own. In your agreement you must address the following and more: 

  • Child custody, both physical and legal 
  • Parenting plan 
  • Child support 
  • Property and debt division 
  • Spousal support 
  • Legal fees 

After you have created an agreement that you are both happy with, you can file a petition with the court asking for a dissolution of marriage. If approved, this happens much more quickly than divorce. Many people cite less emotional stress when using dissolution instead of the traditional divorce approach. 

Dissolution is a great option if you and your spouse are still on mostly good terms and agree about how you would like to end your marriage. The process is also usually quick and far less expensive than divorce. However, you must still deal with fairly complicated issues covered by Ohio family law. Issues like property division and support can be difficult to understand, and most people who choose to go down the dissolution route do so under the careful guidance of an experienced counsel who not only understands the matter at hand, but who can also uphold their rights throughout the process
