This is the first step you will take to start the process of filing for dissolution. The information you enter will be used to put together a packet of documents you will need to save, fill out, print and file with your local court.
Don't exit until you have filled out all of the information since anything you enter can't be saved until the end. Also be sure to:
- Enter your information completely and correctly.
- Set aside enough time. Answering the questions for this Form Assistant will take about five minutes. The forms that you will receive at the end may take several hours to fill out.
- Use a computer, if possible, so that you can easily save your documents or email them to yourself.
COVID-19 Update: On June 8, 2020, the Supreme Court of Ohio released updated versions of some domestic relations forms that do not need to be signed by a notary. This is a temporary change, as in-person notary services can be difficult to access with COVID-19 shut-downs, and the updated forms let you skip that step. We have updated our forms to match the new forms, and will update our site when they are no longer usable.
