Overview of Divorce in Ohio

To petition for a divorce in Ohio, the law requires that you have lived in Ohio for at least six months prior to filing and that you state valid grounds for the divorce. Ohio law gives you the option of stating no-fault grounds for divorce, which include:

  • Irreconcilable differences (i.e., you and your spouse are incompatible)
  • You have been living apart and separate for at least one year

You may also decide to cite fault-based grounds for your divorce, such as:

  • Extreme cruelty
  • Adultery
  • Fraud
  • Habitual drug or alcohol abuse
  • Imprisonment

A fault-based divorce requires that you provide proof of the grounds stated, though proving misconduct may also give you an advantage in the outcome of the case. You should always carefully consider what grounds you state and discuss your options and their implications with an experienced Lorain County divorce attorney.

Finalizing Your Divorce

Before a judge will issue a final divorce judgment, you and your spouse must settle several important issues. While the specific issues in each divorce case will vary, many cases involve some or all of the following:

  • Property, asset, and debt division – Ohio law requires that divorcing spouses equitably distribute all marital property, assets, and debts. This includes the family home, business interests, retirement accounts, personal property, and much more.
  • Child custodyIf you have children, your divorce will involve a child custody determination. The court bases child custody arrangements on what the judge believes will be in the best interest of the child. 
  • Child support – One parent may have to provide future payments to the other parent to help financially support their child. Payments are calculated using a formula set out in Ohio law. 
  • Spousal support – Also called alimony or maintenance, these are payments from one spouse that are meant to help support the other spouse until they can support themselves post-divorce. 

The right attorney can help you reach out-of-court settlements regarding the necessary issues whenever possible. If you and your spouse cannot agree, your attorney will represent your rights in court to fight for the best possible decision by the judge.
