Dissolution Of Marriage

Columbus Dissolution of Marriage Lawyer

What is a Marriage Dissolution in Ohio?

Unlike divorce, dissolution of marriage requires both parties to be in complete agreement about issues, such as alimony, property division, and child custody and visitation. A couple, with the help of a lawyer, will then draft a separation agreement that must be approved by the court before their marriage is officially dissolved.

Divorce is not the only means of ending a marriage. In some cases, dissolution of marriage may be a more economical and altogether less traumatic route. At the Law Offices of William L. Geary, you will find an experienced Columbus dissolution attorney who can discuss your options regarding the potential for a dissolution. With numerous years of family law experience behind him, our founding attorney, William L. Geary, has the skills needed to handle even the most unique situations. You can work with our team to find lasting solutions for complex problems.

Sorting the Facts from the Fiction

Many people have misconceptions about the dissolution of marriage process. One of the most common is that one attorney can assist both sides of a divorcing couple. In dissolution of marriage, an attorney acts as a counselor to only one of the parties, assisting with creating and filing a separation agreement.

Another myth involves high-level assets. Dissolution of marriage may be possible even if you have high-level or complex assets. Your separation agreement will cover all rights and obligations concerning the division of both assets and debt.
