Ohio Divorce Laws

Here you will find an overview of Ohio divorce laws. From the time the Petitioner (or Plaintiff) files the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage or Complaint for Divorce, until the time the Decree of Dissolution of Marriage or Decree of Divorce is signed by the Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, Ohio has certain procedures that need to be followed. These procedures are all in accordance with Ohio laws, encompassing spousal support, child custody and visitation, child support, and equitable distribution.

Ohio divorce laws are put in place for both the Petitioner (or Plaintiff) and the Co-Petitioner (or Defendant) to receive a fair divorce. Sometimes, hiring a divorce lawyer or mediator in your area is the best way to ensure that this happens. Or, if you and your spouse are able to cooperate and agree on everything, you can do your own Ohio divorce online.
