The divorce process requires time and patience as there are many steps, paperwork, and layers to work through. If you and your spouse decide to dissolve your marriage, our family law attorneys can brief you on what to expect from a time frame, cost, and other related details.
There are two types of divorces—contested and uncontested. The route of divorce you choose will determine how quick, simple, or challenging the process will be.
A conflict-free divorce, otherwise known as an uncontested divorce, is possible when you and your spouse agree on terms, spousal support, child support, and property division ahead of divorce proceedings. Without legal litigation, this process usually takes 30-90 days.
A contested divorce is likely when two spouses can’t agree on the divorce process, parenting issues, child custody, or other related matters. The Ohio Supreme Court guidelines say a contested divorce without children could be resolved one year after filing, or a case with children could take up to 18 months. A contested divorce can take longer if more assets are involved or ongoing disputes occur.
In the most complex and contentious of divorces, Ernst & Associates, LLC can help you make efficient and rational decisions regarding your finances, children, property, and housing to ensure you get what you’re entitled to while also reaching a final resolution.
