Divorce is the termination of a marriage based on fault determined by a court of law. Sometimes the term dissolution is used interchangeably with divorce, but legally these are two distinctly different court actions, both of which result in the termination of a marriage.
Filing for divorce in Youngstown, Ohio, begins with a plaintiff, who must be an Ohio resident, filing a complaint in the Court of Common Pleas. The plaintiff must establish legal grounds for filing the complaint, and once filed, the defendant (spouse) is served notice of the complaint. Court proceedings can be lengthy, especially when spouses disagree on grounds for the divorce, separation of assets, and spousal support. Things become even more complicated when children are involved.
