What Is a Dissolution of Marriage?

A dissolution of marriage takes place when both parties agree to end the marital relationship by filing a petition for the dissolution and attaching a separation agreement. All the conditions of the separation agreement must be agreed upon by both parties in order for the dissolution to take place.

After the petition is filed, a hearing to approve the separation typically takes place 10 to 90 days later. Both parties must be present and must agree to the dissolution of their marriage under oath. If one party does not agree or is not happy with the separation agreement, the dissolution cannot take place. In many cases, this matter is converted to a divorce action.

What Is a Separation Agreement in Ohio?

A separation agreement is a legally binding document that outlines and determines everything related to a couple’s separation.

A separation agreement outlines plans for the following, and more:

  • Division of property
  • Allocation of debt

For this agreement to be approved by a judge, both parties must consent to all the details outlined in the document and agree to follow the terms.
