Divorce and Dissolution Attorneys
33801953_sIn Ohio, divorce differs from marriage dissolution in that divorce is frequently a solution when couples cannot
agree to all the terms involved in ending their marriage. Dissolution is used when the couple agrees to end their marriage and agrees on all issues involved. These issues may include child and spousal support, custody, and division of property. Our lawyers respect families in both divorce and dissolution actions and can advise clients on which action might work best for their situation.

Clients often wonder how long a dissolution or divorce may take. In Ohio, a marriage can be dissolved in 45 days from filing, although it may take much longer. While there is no way to predict the exact time, our attorneys can work with you to accomplish your goals in the most efficient manner suited to you.

When Ohio couples decide to end their marriage, they can do so through either dissolution or divorce. Dissolution is used if both parties agree to all the terms of the termination, requiring to merely approve the agreement. Divorce is for when the parties cannot agree on the issues and require court intervention. In either case, the assistance of a knowledgeable and dedicated family law attorney can make a difference.

Child Custody and Visitation Arrangements
Custody and visitation arrangements depend on each family’s unique situation. They can be decided by agreement, or through a Court order. We generally encourage families to work together to create an arrangement that works for them. If necessary, we can go to Court to take action for our clients.

Child support guidelines in Ohio are based on the income of both spouses and other factors. Attorneys at Svete & McGee can work with you to learn how the court will calculate child support in your case. We can also answer any questions you may have about child support in Ohio.
