Delaware, OH Divorce Lawyers
In Ohio, there is more than one way to separate from your partner and dissolve your marriage. A divorce is typically a contested proceeding, with each side represented by counsel. Contested means that the parties disagree on one or some of the following: property division, debt distribution, child custody, spousal support or child support. A dissolution on the other hand, is when the parties agree on the terms of the separation.
There are benefits to filing for divorce, rather than dissolution. Specifically, divorce puts restraining protections in place on the party’s assets and debts. This means that if one party controls the finances he or she is restricted from moving the money while the divorce is pending. In a divorce, you can also ask the court for temporary orders to provide income and parenting plans until the divorce is finalized.
