Dayton divorce lawyers providing solid representation in contested cases
The state of Ohio allows for a “no fault” divorce. This means that a Court will grant a Decree of Divorce on the grounds of incompatibility. One may file a case in our state as long as they have lived here for at least the last six months. A Judge will grant the Decree of Divorce no earlier than six weeks after the initial papers have been served, so that both parties may completely comprehend the course of action that is being undertaken. If the spouses agree on all the terms of their case then they may file for an uncontested divorce, which can save a great deal of time and money. Retaining a qualified attorney to assist you through this process will help make sure that all matters are handled efficiently and allows the process to continue without issue.
The first step in Ohio is to file a Complaint for Divorce in the Court of Common Pleas. Once the Complaint is filed, it will be served on the other party. In addition to the Complaint for Divorce, a party may also request that the Court issue temporary orders which will help the parties maintain the “status quo” during the divorce proceedings. If the other party files an Answer, the next step in the process will be to perform discovery, through which information is requested from the opposing side. Should a settlement be reached between the parties, then a final Decree may be submitted to the Court. If no settlement is reached, the case will go to trial before a Judge. Shortly after the conclusion of trial, the Court will enter its final rulings on all issues.
