Worthington, Ohio Dissolution Hearing Questions for Women

If you are a woman who is preparing for your dissolution hearing in Worthington, Ohio, you are probably wondering what to expect during the hearing. This may be especially true if you do not have a divorce lawyer.

  • During the hearing, the judge or magistrate assigned to 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 presiding over your case for 90 days prior to filing? Your answer should be yes to both of these questions.
  • Have you read the separation agreement?
  • Do you understand it? You should already be very familiar with all the terms outlined in the separation agreement, which is the contract that you sign and says who gets what.
  • Do you agree to obey the terms in the separation agreement? Again, since you read through and understand all of the terms, you have probably already agreed with what is put in there, so your answer should be yes.
  • Do you recognize that you have waived your right to a lawyer? You have most likely already signed paperwork that you waived this right (if you do not have an attorney.)
  • Are you pregnant? This question sometimes throws women off, but it is necessary for the judge or magistrate to ask this. If you were pregnant at this time, they would need to get more information about the child, so the proceedings would be stopped.

Would you like to change your name? You can change your name within the dissolution process by putting it in the terms of the separation agreement. So you will need to let them know if this is something you are doing or not.

Your hearing is concluded once all of the necessary questions are answered. There are not very many to go through, so it does not usually take long. Being prepared for your Worthington, Ohio dissolution hearing can help you stay calm during a difficult time.

If you hired a divorce attorney, they can also go through what will happen during the hearing before it occurs.
