Uncontested divorce in Ohio

There are two types of divorce that you may file for in the state of Ohio:

  • Contested dissolution. This type of legal breakup is the only one a couple may opt for if it is unable to reach consensus concerning at least one of the important divorce matters. That is why, in such situations, each spouse needs to hire a lawyer to defend their interests in court and visit multiple hearings so that a judge can make a decision based on the evidence and facts provided by each party. Consequently, such type of dissolution is extremely expensive and stressful for every person involved.
  • Uncontested divorce. This option works for those who have managed to agree on dissolution-related issues. This type of divorce is more convenient than the contested one as it is much cheaper and takes less time to be finalized. Apart from that, filing for uncontested dissolution, couples do not necessarily need to hire a lawyer.

No matter what kind of divorce you and your spouse have chosen, you will still need to deal with a great amount of paperwork. There are really dozens of forms you may need depending on your specific case, and finding them all is a real challenge.

Getting a divorce in Ohio with a child

There are a lot of things that divorcees with kids need to be aware of when filing for a marriage dissolution:

  • There are two types of custody in the State of Ohio: sole and joint, which can be legal and physical. Even if parents share custody, it doesn’t mean that the child will spend equal amount of time with each of them.
  • The judge determines custody based on the child’s best interests. Apart from that, he or she also considers the wishes of all parties, the child’s relationships with parents, the child’s adjustments to home and school, the mental and physical health of all parties, parent’s contribution to the child’s upbringing, etc.
  • If the judge considers granting divorcees joint custody, the factors he or she takes into account are the following: the ability and readiness of parents to cooperate, their ability to encourage the contact of the child with the second parent, any history of abuse or neglect, how close each party lives to each other, etc.
  • Child support is determined based on the Ohio child support guidelines.
  • The divorcees will most likely have to attend a parenting class that will allow them to understand how they can help their kids deal with the divorce.
