My Divorce or Dissolution Should be Easy, Right?

 

Every divorce or dissolution is unique. The length of time required to finalize a divorce or dissolution will vary greatly depending on the length of the marriage, whether there are minor children of the marriage and what property has been accumulated during the marriage.

 

Ending your marriage raises numerous legal issues, each of which must be resolved before you can continue on with your life. If you have minor children, important decisions will need to be made regarding custody, parenting time and child support. On a day to day basis, you will need to determine who will be responsible to make decisions for the children and who will be responsible for children’s expenses beyond the exchange of child support for such necessaries as health insurance, daycare, scholastic and school fees, extra-curricular activities and enrichment activities.

 

Once decisions regarding your minor children are made, all marital and separate property will need to be identified, valued and divided equitably between the spouses. Ohio law states that only property acquired during the marriage is subject to division as part of the divorce and that each spouse is considered to have contributed equally to the production and acquisition of marital property regardless of who earned a larger income during the marriage and who had more in-home responsibilities for the care of minor children.

We Agree On Everything Except  . . . ,

Can We Dissolve Our Marriage?

 

No!

 

Obtaining a dissolution of marriage in Ohio means that both spouses fully agree on every issue, both at the beginning of the dissolution and at the final hearing. A marriage may only be dissolved when the parties have reached a complete settlement on all issues relating to parenting, property and support.

 

Even in an amicable dissolution, it is important to have legal counsel to ensure a fair and equitable settlement. A skilled family law practitioner will ensure that assets are properly identified as joint or separate property and are accurately valued. As necessary, values will be determined for the marital home, retirement savings and benefits, cars, financial accounts and valuable personal possessions. Christopher M. Alexander has a reputation for successfully negotiating debt trade-offs, resolving home equity disputes and asset valuations so that his clients receive the fairest possible property division.

 

When negotiated with the advice of an attorney who is experienced in all phases of family law litigation, and who can offer insight into the manner in which specific issues are decided in local Courts based on years of experience practicing before them, a dissolution can be “quicker, cheaper and easier” if the parties are willing and able to work together.
