Divorce & Dissolutions Lawyers in Cleveland, Ohio
Divorce & Dissolutions
Divorce and Dissolutions are the ways to legally end a marriage. In short, dissolution is the process used when the spouses work together to reach an agreement. Divorce is the process used when the spouses cannot reach an agreement on their own and ask the Court to resolve some or all the issues.
In a dissolution of marriage, the spouses reach an agreement regarding all issues related to the marriage including division of assets and debts, child custody, child support, and spousal support/alimony. Once the agreement has been reached, the spouses file an action with the Court together and the Court terminates the marriage and makes the agreement an Order of the Court.
A divorce, on the other hand, is a lawsuit filed by one spouse which asks the court to decide all or some of the issues related to the marriage. Even when a divorce complaint is filed, the spouses are frequently able to reach an agreement and avoid trial. However, if the spouses are unable to reach an agreement, the Court will conduct a trial and decide all unresolved issues.
