Q: How long will it take to get a divorce?

A: There are many factors that contribute to the duration of divorce proceedings. While a couple with basic assets and no children may be able to finalize a divorce within a few months, more complex proceedings can last for years. Mediating certain issues can also help reach a resolution more quickly. Contact a practiced divorce lawyer like those at Amy M. Levine & Associates for more information based on your unique situation.

Q: How much does a divorce cost?

A: Again, the overall cost of a divorce varies widely, depending on how contentious and complex the proceedings are. We ensure that we counsel clients about the financial impact of their decisions to help them make choices that are practical and reasonable.

Q: What is the difference between divorce and dissolution?

A: While both dissolution and divorce result in the termination of a marriage, they have many differences. Dissolution does not require grounds or fault to end the marriage, but does require that the parties agree to all terms. A divorce is a lawsuit in which one party asks the court to end the marriage and make decisions about child custody, property division and other issues.

Q: My spouse has handled most of our finances during our marriage. How can I be sure I get a fair share of our assets?

A: During the discovery process, your divorce attorney will make requests for financial information from your spouse and his or her counsel. Your lawyer can then help you understand the overall financial situation and begin pursuing an appropriate division of property.

Q: How is property divided during a divorce?

A: In Ohio, most property acquired during a marriage is subject to equitable division by the court. However, there are several exceptions, and judges have discretion when it comes to the actual division. Learn more about dividing assets and debts in divorce.
