What a Man Can Expect in an Ohio Dissolution Hearing

If you don’t have an attorney, you might not be sure what to expect.

If you are a male, here are some questions the judge or magistrate will ask you during your Ohio dissolution hearing:

  • Have you been a resident of the state of Ohio for 6 months? Have you been a resident of the county your case is presiding in for 90 days prior to the filing of the petition for the dissolution? These answers should be yes.
  • Have you read the separation agreement? (This is the contract you sign that outlines all the terms.) Do you agree to abide by the terms of the separation agreement? Again, the answers should be yes.
  • If you don’t have an attorney, do you want an attorney? Or are you waiving that right? You have usually already been over this within the paperwork, so you already understand that you have waived this right if you do not have an attorney.
  • Do you want the court to dissolve the marriage according to the terms in the separation agreement? The answer should be yes to this as well.

After a fairly short list of questions, the hearing is over. As you can see, you do not have too many questions to answer, and it is usually a very quick process. This information can help you be prepared for your dissolution hearing. Your Ohio divorce attorney will review what will happen before your hearing as well.
