Legal Terminology: Divorce or Dissolution?

Often, people are confused about the difference between a divorce, dissolution of a marriage and a separation. Basically, a divorce is the termination of a person’s marriage. Marriage dissolution is the termination of a marriage by agreement, so essentially they are the same thing. The spouses separate and a court rules on the division of property, alimony (spousal support), child support, custody and visitation.

There are other arrangements or types of separation that exist and fall short of an actual divorce in Dublin OH:

Trial separation, Dublin OH

When a couple lives apart for a test period, to decide whether or not to separate permanently, it's called a trial separation. Even if they don't get back together, the assets they accumulate and debts they incur during the trial period are usually considered jointly owned.

Living apart, Dublin OH

Spouses who no longer reside in the same dwelling are said to be living apart. In some states, living apart without intending to reunite changes the spouses' property rights. For example, some states consider property accumulated and debts incurred between living apart and divorce to be the separate property or debt of the person who accumulated or incurred it.

Permanent separation, Dublin OH

When a couple decides to split up, it's often called a permanent separation. It may follow a trial separation, or may begin immediately when the couple starts living apart. In most states, all assets received and most debts incurred after permanent separation are the separate property or responsibility of the spouse incurring them.

Legal separation, Dublin OH

A legal separation results when the parties separate and a court rules on the division of property, alimony, child support, custody and visitation -- but does not grant a divorce. The money awarded for support of the spouse and children under these circumstances is often called separate maintenance (as opposed to alimony and child support).

Division of Assets, Dublin OH

Should two parties decide to divorce, a full and accurate determination of their assets must be made. Once the assets are determined, then those assets are divided. This division is not always a 50/50 split due to each spouse’s income history, pre-marital assets and other factors related to the care of any children. There is no standard to the division of property because it is whatever the parties determine. For example, consideration must be given to 401k plans, which are in the name of one spouse, but was accumulated during the course of the marriage. When the divorce is finalized, a QDRO would be issued to transfer qualified retirement plans on a tax-free basis. Spousal support should be gender neutral as well as appropriate and reasonable. The allocation of child support however, is based on a state formula. Our divorce attorneys would assist you in determining who pays what, to whom. Contact us for legal advice in Dublin Ohio.

Hague convention and divorce

Gary is a very smart and dedicated lawyer. He keeps reasonable business hours and is very prompt to respond to communication. He knows so much about law that it's constantly educational to be in his presence. He has a good sense of humor but doesn't beat around the subject. He has a straightforward manner that is important and he follows the legal process exactly. He is patient and able to read people well. He is expensive, but worth it. His entire firm is wonderful.
