A Cleveland Dissolution Lawyer

The difference between a divorce and a dissolution is that in a divorce the parties disagree over at least one thing. In a dissolution, they have agreed upon all issues.

If you and your spouse are in total agreement on the terms of divorce, then a dissolution of marriage could work for you.

In a Dissolution, the parties have a complete agreement before they file with the Court. When we file for a Dissolution we use the ground of "irreconcilable differences."

You and your spouse must agree in a Separation agreement as to:

  • Property division - including real estate, personal property, vehicles, bank accounts, stocks/bonds, pensions/retirement/profit sharing plans, vacation homes, recreational equipment, and all other items purchased or acquired during the marriage
  • Debt - who will pay what, when and in what amounts
  • Spousal Support / Alimony - if there is support then how much is it, when is it paid, how is it paid, and is it temporary or permanent?
  • If children are involved:
    • Child support
    • Custody
    • Allocation of Parental Rights and Responsibilities
    • Visitation / Parenting Time
    • Medical care decisions, insurance and payment
    • Tax exemptions and credits

Once the Separation Agreement is filed, the dissolution can be granted within 90 days. If there are children involved, you are required to attend Parenting Class before the dissolution is granted.
