Solutions In Divorce, Dissolution And Annulment

In Ohio, a marriage can be ended through:

  • Divorce — A divorce does not require an agreement between the spouses. In fact, both spouses do not even need to be present. In Ohio, the divorce must meet one of 11 criteria, including adultery, absence, cruelty, habitual drunkenness, neglect of duty, fraudulent contract, imprisonment and incompatibility.
  • Dissolution — This decree is granted when both spouses agree on all terms of the separation, terminating their marriage and dividing their assets. They must agree on all terms of child issues, including custody, support and parenting time.
  • Annulment — This decree essentially declares that the marriage never existed. These are rarely granted, and there must be evidence that something extreme occurred, like fraud or force.

Attorney Laura Helmbrecht provides the answers and options you need to make informed decisions that are best for you, your children and your future.
