Legal Separation

Hilliard Legal Separation Attorney

Experienced Legal Separation Lawyer Serving Franklin County, OH

A complaint for legal separation is different than a complaint for divorce or a petition for dissolution. Just as in a divorce, a court will enter an order dividing assets and liabilities and ordering payment or non-payment of support, if applicable, but the parties are still married. The responding party in a legal separation may counterclaim with a complaint for divorce.

At Dailey Law Offices, our Hilliard legal separation lawyer has everything you need to handle these cases with efficiency for your divorce in Franklin County and beyond.

What Are the Grounds For Legal Separation in Ohio?

The grounds for a legal separation are the same as those for a divorce in Ohio and include the following:

  • Either spouse had another living husband or wife living at the time of the marriage
  • There was a willful absence for at least a year
  • There was adultery or cruelty
  • The marriage was entered via a fraudulent contract
  • There was a neglect of duty
  • One of the spouses was or is imprisoned
  • Both spouses have lived apart for a year
  • There in incompatibility between the spouses

There are many reasons why a couple may want a legal separation but still want to remain married, including but certainly not limited to marital problems that one or both parties hope may eventually be resolved, for insurance purposes, etc.

Absolutely the best experience with a lawyer I’ve ever had. And not just because she’s incredibly professional but because you can tell she genuinely cares, which means she works 10 times as hard as the next guy. 10/10

Dailey Law Offices was able to assist my husband and I with some estate planning that we had been putting off for quite a while. We were very pleased with how easy the process was and how smoothly they were able to get everything completed from start to finish. We also really liked their office dog, Woody!
