Divorce is the most popular option when it comes to ending a relationship after a marriage. But many people do not even know that it is not the only one.
Marital dissolution proves one of the most common alternatives to divorce, providing a unique alternative for the couples it may work for.
What marital dissolution can do
The Ohio State Bar Association discusses marital dissolution. This happens if both members of the marriage mutually decide to dissolve or end the relationship. They do not need to prove or even have a specific reason for this dissolution.
After coming to the agreement of the dissolution itself, you get to make decisions on the matters that divorce also handles. This includes issues like property division, asset and debt distribution, child support, spousal support, living arrangements and more.
Relying on a mediator
Many people going through marital dissolution will rely on the aid of counselors to see them through. They can help guide discussions and ensure that every party gets to say their piece and speak without getting interrupted or spoken over. They can also offer unique solutions to problems and may potentially bring needed fresh perspectives to the conversation.
After you finally come to an agreement with or without the help of a mediator, you create an agreement which you then both sign. You then file this as a petition with the court. They will then review it and if they do not find any issues with it, they will make it a court order.
This is a good way for couples without arguments to get through the divorce problem without any of the legal and financial stress that divorce causes.
