Preparing a Man for a Lewis Center, Ohio Dissolution Hearing

Without a divorce attorney, you might be unsure of what will happen during your Lewis Center, Ohio dissolution hearing. The judge or magistrate for your case will ask you the following questions:

Have you been a resident of Ohio for 6 months?

Have you been a resident of the county that presides over this case for 90 days before the filing of the petition for dissolution? Your answer should be yes to both questions.

Do you comprehend that you have waived the right to have a lawyer? This should have been one of the pieces of information you went over within your paperwork, so you should already know you have waived this right. Your answer should be yes to this also.

Have you read the separation agreement?

Are you in agreement that you will obey the terms of the separation agreement? The separation agreement is the contract you sign that lays out all the terms of the dissolution. You should answer yes to this question as well.

Do you want the court to dissolve the marriage consistent with the terms found within the separation agreement? As you have read through the separation agreement and terms, you already understand what they are and should confirm that this is what you want to happen.

The hearing is concluded once the judge or magistrate gets through the required questions. There are not very many, so it tends to be a pretty quick process. This information will help you know what to expect before going into your dissolution hearing.

Your Lewis Center, Ohio divorce attorney (if you have chosen to have one) will review the process with you beforehand as well.
