What Is a Merits Hearing in Ohio?

A Merits Hearing in Ohio is essentially an uncontested final hearing for dissolution or divorce. These are held if the parties have reached an agreement with respect to division of assets and debts as well as custodial issues. In addition, if proof was not taken at a contested hearing, the Court may require a merits hearing in order to finalize the divorce. Most often a Merits Hearing is very short: 5-10 minutes. It involves verification by the parties of personal information as well as verification of signatures on Parenting Plan and Property Settlement Agreement. This is similar to an Uncontested Final Hearing which is held in Northern Kentucky.
