The Ohio Divorce Process
Many people wonder about how the Ohio divorce laws will affect their split. If you are considering filing for divorce, here is the basic process:
- You or your spouse will need to have been a resident in Ohio for at least six months.
- You need to decide if you and your spouse agree to divorce and will work together to amicably dissolve the marriage. If you work together, you can file for an uncontested divorce. If you don’t work together and do not agree on the big issues, then yours is a contested divorce.
- You and your spouse will need to sign the petition for the dissolution of the marriage.
- Your petition should include a proposed separation agreement that includes how you divide your property, whether there will be spousal support, child custody and visitation arrangements, child support and other specific matters related to your marriage.
- If you are not able to reach a divorce settlement with your spouse, you will need to file for divorce at the Court of Common Pleas. You will need to site a “ground” or reason for your divorce. There are 11 grounds for divorce in Ohio.
It is always in your best interest to understand your rights and options when it comes to dissolving your marriage. No matter which route you choose, our team is prepared to offer personal, supportive and seasoned counsel.
