Some people have more contact with the court system than do others, but divorce is a common way that large numbers of Ohio’s people interact with the courts. It’s understandable if people have some questions about how the legal process plays out.
Not long ago, we discussed marital dissolution, which many people have found to be a good way to accomplish a divorce in Ohio. A marital dissolution is a form of divorce that works well when the spouses agree on the major issues, and they simply need to get through the legal process to end their marriage and take back control of their lives again. If the spouses agree that incompatibility is the grounds for the divorce, or they have been living apart for at least one year, they are eligible for a marital dissolution.
Excellent legal representation can be key for spouses experiencing divorce.

We provide our clients with knowledgeable and practical advice, and we stand up for our clients in court and in negotiations. We are committed to finding solutions that work for our clients.
Major issues in a divorce can include child custody, child support and property division. The legal standard for any question involving children is the best interests of the child, and property division is done according to the principle of equitable distribution. We know how to use these legal principles to craft arguments on behalf of our clients. For more information on how we approach divorce legal issues, check out the divorce page on our firm’s website.
