Dissolution is a more cooperative and private approach to legally ending a marriage. In dissolution, both spouses must agree to all parts of the contract. It has the advantage of being less costly, both financially and, often, emotionally, since the spouses work together in the process and fault does not have to be found. It can often be completed in about 90 days.

“No Fault” divorce is a common name for a Dissolution in Ohio. In the dissolution procedures, the spouses have to reach agreement on all of these issues. The dissolution procedure provides the same legal effect as a divorce and in the end the marital relationship is terminated. But, it usually avoids conflict and confrontation, is usually much quicker, is usually significantly less expensive, and the parties can be relatively sure of the ultimate outcome.
Once the judge approves, a judgment of dissolution will be entered that incorporates the terms of the separation agreement, thus making the separation agreement an order of the court. At that point the court will enter a judgment terminating the marriage.
