There are two ways to terminate your marriage in the state of Ohio:  Divorce and Dissolution.  Our Cincinnati, Divorce Lawyers will work with you to explore and determine which process will help you achieve your goals in the most efficient manner:

Dissolution of Marriage:

This is essentially an agreed upon Divorce.  You and your spouse must agree upon all of the terms:  Division of Assets and Debts, Custody, Support, Attorney Fees and Court Costs.  Once you have agreed to all of these terms, you can enter into a Separation Agreement or Shared Parenting Plan and then Petition the court jointly to terminate your marriage.  This is normally a quicker and cheaper way to terminate your marriage.  Contact one of our family attorneys today to discuss the possibility of terminating your marriage by dissolution.


If you are unable to agree on all of the terms of the division of assets and debts, custody, support, attorney fees and court costs you may have to file for Divorce.  This is a legal action to terminate your marriage.  Unless you work out a settlement after filing for divorce, the court will determine those issues that you and your spouse are unable to agree upon.  Some clients are forced to file for divorce to secure parenting time, support payments, payment of debts or to simply make sure their marital assets are preserved.  Contact one of our divorce lawyers to discuss and evaluate your need for immediate court action.
