Brookpark, OH asked in Child Support and Divorce for Ohio

Q: In ohio doing my own dissolution paperwork, do I need to fill out the forms for child support if we are not doing it?

The packet I got online says the child support forms need to be filled out but we are not asking for child support from each other.

A: The answer is, most likely yes.

In a dissolution, the parties largely get to control the terms of the agreement. But, all domestic relations courts require that you disclose a wide variety of information and complete all of their required forms.

The court's website is your best resource as it should have a checklist of the exact forms you need.

If you have concerns or questions, I suggest consulting with a domestic relations or family law attorney.
