Ohio law provides three ways for a husband and wife to end or alter their marriage: legal separation, dissolution, or divorce. To obtain a dissolution or divorce, you must be an Ohio resident for at least six months before filing. There is no residency requirement for persons seeking a legal separation.
Resolving family conflict can resolve smoothly or escalate into a courtroom. At Dungan & LeFevre, we can help represent the best interests of you and your children.
