When a person files for a divorce in Ohio, the husband, wife or both parties will submit a complaint with the local common pleas court. In the complaint, the party seeking a divorce in Ohio will allege that they are seeking a divorce on one of the legal grounds for divorce, which include adultery, imprisonment or fraudulent conduct. A dissolution of marriage petition is also filed with the local common pleas court; however, there are several distinct differences between a divorce and dissolution. In a dissolution of marriage in Ohio, the couple will file a petition collectively, asking that the court terminate their marriage and accept the separation agreement which they established. When compared to a divorce, a dissolution of marriage is typically less time-consuming and costly, and will not require that a party prove legal grounds for fault.
