Why should I consider dissolution of marriage?

Marriage is something that is supposed to last forever, but there have been many people who have decided that things just weren’t working out between them and their spouse. After making the decision to end their marriage, it is likely that they realized a traditional divorce wasn’t the only option as to how they would do this. Since many states offer what is known as dissolution of marriage, those who were eligible opted to end their marriage this way.

The following are reasons couples should consider dissolution of marriage instead of divorce:

  • Decreased amount of paperwork.
  • Less time spent in court.
  • Less time negotiating.

Although dissolution of marriage may be a desirable option for many couples, it is not available to all who are looking to end their marriage. Before a couple can move forward with dissolution of marriage, they have to make sure they meet the requirements. They will vary from state to state, so depending on where you live, you may encounter something different. However, many states will look at the length of the marriage, the couple’s property and assets and more. It is then that the couple can file for dissolution of marriage and will be able to cut ties and go their separate ways.

There are always going to be couples that decide that they no longer want to be together. If and when that time comes, they will have to make a decision about whether they will get a divorce or have their marriage dissolved. Anyone who has questions about dissolution of marriage or would like to move forward with the process can contact an attorney.
