Ohio family law provides for Legal Separation in cases of willful absence for a year or more, adultery, extreme cruelty, fraud, gross neglect of duty, habitual drunkenness, imprisonment, or uncontested incompatibility.
Before filing for Legal Separation, it’s important to determine whether your ultimate goal is to salvage the marriage, or to end it. If your ultimate purpose is to end the marriage, Legal Separation will only require you to endure another round of litigation and expense, when you later initiate Divorce proceedings.
If you and your spouse agree on all issues; including custody, child support, division of assets and liabilities, we can help you file for dissolution to terminate the marriage.
