Dissolution vs. Divorce
Ohio allows two legal means of ending a marriage. In a divorce, fault must generally be assigned to one of the spouses in order to proceed with the separation. Certain no-fault divorces are permitted, however, the court is particular on these requirements. In the case of a no-fault separation, dissolution is the preferred method. Dissolutions are generally less expensive than a divorce, for a dissolution allows you to bypass many of the more harrowing court procedures that are required for a divorce.
