Q: I want to get a divorce from my wife we have no kids no marital assets and been separated for almost two years
A: Living apart for one year is grounds for a divorce. The forms to file a divorce are on line. Check your local court web site or the Ohio Supreme Court web site. Or use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local divorce attorney to assist you.
A: What you didnt say in your question is how long youve been married and lived together. You could stillhave marital assests to divide such a retirment benefits. Unless youve only been married a very short time, I always recommend people spend the money and hire an attorney and do it right. If you dont, you never know what you could be giving up or what your rights really are.
