Q: We want a divorce because we just don’t want to be married but don’t want to go to court, is this possible and fast?
We have no property and don’t want anything from each other. We have a 14 and 15 year old and work out with visitation just fine nonissues for two years now.
A: Parties seeking an uncontested Divorce with children or a Dissolution with children in Ohio must write out their agreements for the court to order a termination of the marriage. The agreements to terminate the marriage with children must include property division, a parenting plan and child support calculation concerning the children whether or not the parents will have a child support order included in their agreements. It is advised to seek the legal counsel of an experienced family law attorney who can properly memorialize the agreements and file the paperwork with the court. A final hearing can be done within 45 days depending on the filing.
