Caring Legal Representation That Puts Your Interests First
How an Ohio mediation lawyer can help your family get positive results from your divorce
In many cases, two parties who agree on a divorce are able to amicably dissolve their partnership. This involves creating a mutually beneficial agreement on various aspects of the marriage, such as how property will be divided or how each parent will maintain a meaningful relationship with children of the marriage. In Ohio, this is known as dissolution of marriage, and is highly preferable to its expensive and stressful counterpart — a contested divorce.
There are a number of benefits to the dissolution of your marriage, as opposed to a contested divorce, including:
- Reduced cost. A dissolution of marriage, is significantly less costly than a contested divorce. Generally, it resolves more quickly, and all forms can be filed at one time.
- Reduced stress. Contested divorces are highly stressful for both spouses, and for any children of the marriage. However, a dissolution of marriage where all aspects of the divorce are amicably agreed upon is significantly less stressful than a court battle.
- No need to go to court. A dissolution of marriage eliminates the need to go to court. Instead, an Ohio dissolution attorney can draw up and file all necessary paperwork, and for the final hearing, both parties can meet with a private judge, who can conduct the hearing in our offices.
- Family assets do not need to be frozen. In a contested divorce, assets that belong to the family, such as savings accounts, insurance, and automobiles, are, essentially, frozen. This prevents a spouse from spending down the family’s bank account; however, it can put a financial strain on both parties until the divorce is resolved.
