The Cost of Uncontested Divorce in Ohio

The unpredictability of hourly fee arrangements, coupled with an uncertain end date can spell disaster for your pocketbook. That’s why uncontested divorce is such a favorable option for many Ohioans. With an uncontested divorce, you arrive at your desired outcome without litigation. There is a flat fee for our full-service package for an uncontested divorce or dissolution, and this fee differs only by the specifics of your case, rather than on case length. One of the biggest factors that could determine the flat fee of your uncontested divorce case is whether you and your spouse have children together.

How Long Does it Take to Get an Uncontested Divorce?

Due to the simplification of these cases, most are submitted to the family law court within a matter of days. Rather than taking a year or more to reach a resolution, as some contested divorce cases can go, uncontested divorce cases are usually resolved within a few months. This is why uncontested divorce is often referred to as “the quick divorce.”

To file for divorce in Ohio, you not only have to state a grounds for divorce, but you must also have a witness to support that claim.

Fault grounds for an uncontested divorce in Ohio:

  • Adultery
  • Willful absence for one or more years
  • Extreme cruelty
  • Habitual drunkenness
  • Gross neglect of duty
  • Fraudulent contract
  • Imprisonment

Dissolution vs. Uncontested Divorce

According to the Ohio State Bar Association, divorce and dissolution are completely separate processes. If you want to seek an uncontested divorce in Ohio, you have to show fault. If you do not want to show fault (aka “no-fault divorce”), you will have to pursue the dissolution option. Dissolution is essentially Ohio’s no-fault divorce. Unlike divorce petitions, dissolution petitions are not filed until the spouses have reached an agreement on all pertinent issues. This substantially speeds up the process. What dissolution and uncontested divorce have in common is that once finalized, the marriage is ended.
