What is Dissolution?

A dissolution provides many spouses with a more affordable, amicable and kinder approach during this very difficult time.  As opposed to Divorce, which begins as a divorce complaint filed by one spouse against the other, a dissolution begins by both spouses submitting a petition to the domestic relations division in the county in which one or both spouses have resided for the last 90 days.   Along with the petition for dissolution, the parties submit a separation agreement and if they both agree to shared parenting of their child(ren), a shared parenting plan.  Once submitted, and assuming  each spouse has registered for or taken the parenting class unique to each county, the domestic relations court will schedule the matter for a final hearing.  
Is A Dissolution My Best Option?

You and your spouse must agree on every aspect of the separation in order for a dissolution to be possible. 

These aspects include; 

• Property distribution (including real property and personal property);

• Allocation of debt;

• Spousal support (if any);

• Allocation of parental rights and responsibilities, which includes the custodial arrangement, (shared parenting vs. legal custody to one parent, parenting time (formerly referred to as visitation), and child support.
 When an amicable resolution, or dissolution, is possible, couples should seriously consider the benefits that the dissolution may have upon their family members.  
What are the benefits of a dissolution over a divorce?
Hiring a dissolution attorney is generally less expensive than divorce.  An experienced dissolution attorney will usually save each party significant dissolution attorney fees.    More importantly, however, hiring an experienced lawyer for your dissolution will save both parties and their child(ren) heartache and grief, since a dissolution requires an agreement and thus represents an amicable resolution. This spares both spouses from having to testify against each other, and if custody is at issue; prevents the children from being entangled in a potentially bitter divorce.
