What is Difference in Divorce and Dissolution?

-If you want to know the difference between divorce and dissolution, just ask an experienced family law attorney in the state you wish to file.- In Ohio and Kentucky, you can contact Michael Bouldin at Bouldin Law Firm. In Ohio, a dissolution is filed when the parties agree on all issues. The dissolution filing tells the Court that the parties have agreed on ALL issues, including but not limited to: custody, parenting time, division of assets, division of debts, resolution of real estate and other property, division of retirement and other investment accounts. If you do not agree on ALL issues in Ohio, you must file for a divorce. Divorce in Ohio also involves a reason for the divorce. Most common reasons are: infidelity, willful absence over 1 year, neglect of duties, habitual drunkenness, and incarceration. By far the most common reason for divorce is incompatibility. This is used when there is no claim of fault in divorce. Kentucky law is a no-fault state: that is the only reason for divorce/dissolution in Kentucky is a claim that "the marriage is irretrievably broken without reasonable prospect of reconciliation." Because Kentucky is a no-fault divorce state, ALL filings are that of dissolution. What would be a dissolution in Ohio is typically called an uncontested in Kentucky. A contested dissolution in Kentucky is what is referred to as a divorce in Ohio. So there you go, technically all divorces are really dissolutions in Kentucky. If you have questions or wish to discuss a divorce, contact the Bouldin Law Firm and schedule a consultation. Contact [email protected] or call 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE) to schedule.
