Divorce or Dissolution?
In Ohio, a marriage must be terminated through a petition for dissolution or complaint for divorce filed with the court. Through negotiation, mediation or litigation, the family of attorneys at The Blume Law Firm, LLC can help you gain the most equitable results from your dissolution or divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights. The termination of a marriage involves crucial decisions about the welfare of your children and the equitable division of your assets. The experienced attorneys at The Blume Law Firm, LLC will consider all aspects of your divorce case to develop the best possible solutions.
In a dissolution, the parties must be present for the final hearing and agree on all terms to terminate their marriage, including property division, debt allocation and child custody. Generally, the agreement(s) setting forth those terms is filed with the Court when the petition for dissolution is filed.
In a divorce, a complaint for divorce is filed with the Court because both parties cannot agree to the terms in ending the marriage. A contested divorce can become an "uncontested divorce" if the parties are able to reach an agreement on all terms to terminate the marriage after the filing of the complaint. Through contested litigation or a negotiated settlement, the family of lawyers at The Blume Law Firm, LLC will help you resolve all the legal issues in your case.
