Ohio is considered a ‘no-fault’ divorce state. In the majority of cases, neither spouse has to prove “grounds” that will entitle him or her to a divorce. You will need to prove that you and your spouse have irreconcilable differences and that you meet the state’s residency requirements. That being said, traditional divorce is not the only way to end a marriage in the state. Indeed, couples can also jointly file a petition before a court for the ‘dissolution’ of their marriage. In simplified terms, a dissolution is agreement to terminate a marriage. The primary benefit of it is that it is generally more efficient and less expensive than a contested divorce. However, a petition for dissolution cannot be filed until the separating couple has fully agreed on every important issue.
Separating your life from your spouse is inherently challenging, especially if you have minor children or intertwined assets. When going through the divorce process, you need to be sure that you can protect all of your rights. Your parental rights must be protected, along with your right to a fair share of the assets.

Our Lorain divorce attorney know how to strike the delicate balance necessary to effectively handle family law disputes. We understand how sensitive these issues can be, and we always try to push for the collaborative solutions that will help to preserve important familial relationships. For example, we represent many clients through divorce mediation. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution that works well in many family law cases. It is a fully voluntary process that centers on finding mutually beneficial solutions. At the same time, our attorneys are always ready to fight aggressively to protect the best interests of our clients.
In addition, we have attorneys who are trained in the collaborative divorce process. In a collaborative divorce, each spouse is represented by counsel, but both consult with attorney who advise the couple on the major issues in the divorce, such as division of assets and debts, spousal and child support, for example. When an agreement is reached, the attorneys prepare the necessary paperwork that is submitted to the court for an order to terminate the marriage.
