General information concerning Simplified Dissolution of Marriage

A dissolution of marriage is a serious legal step. If you are considering such a proceeding, you should note the following:

  • It is in the best interests of each of the parties to consult attorneys regarding the dissolution of their marriage.
  • Marriage counseling services are available to you in your community.
  • A Judgment of Dissolution (divorce) permanently settles all financial rights arising out of your marriage, including the right to property held in the name of your husband or wife and the right to support (maintenance or alimony) from your spouse.
  • You and your spouse remain married and cannot remarry until a Judgment dissolving your marriage is signed by the Judge.
