Cleveland, OH asked in Divorce for Ohio

Q: I have a couple of questions about getting a divorce. Bo I have not filed yet. I do not want anything from him.

We will not have anything to disagree about. He's lived with his girlfriend since October. I'm trying to see what options I have and the quickest and cheapest way to go. We've been married since 3/17/2002

A: Greetings from the North Coast. Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court has the necessary forms on the website. http://domestic.cuyahogacounty.us. You should be able to modify the forms for any county that you reside.

If you wish to hire an attorney, I assume a Dissolution is best if your husband and you agree on everything, including the division of property. A Dissolution should cost @$1,200-$1,500 if an attorney prepares the documents. The most complicated is if there are any retirement accounts. Good Luck.

A: You may be able to obtain a quick dissolution, but that will still take at least 45 days and require his complete cooperation. Most attorneys could handle you case with a low fee, but we cant always control how the other side reacts. People can fight over anything. You need to consult with a local attorney.
