No-Fault vs. Fault-Based Divorce

In Ohio, at least one of the spouses must have lived in the state for no less than 6 months before filing for divorce. Additionally, Ohio laws state that at least one of the spouses must have lived in the filing county for no less than 90 days prior to filing. Because Ohio permits both no-fault and fault-based divorces, it is wise to consult with an experienced family law attorney before filing. A skilled attorney can determine which type of divorce will be most efficient for you.

In a no-fault divorce, spouses do not have to state reasons for divorcing. The two simply have to state that the marriage is either irreparable due to incompatibility or that the two have lived apart for at least a year.

However, in a fault-based divorce, spouses must prove one or more of the following:

  • Adultery
  • Bigamy
  • Willful absence for at least a year
  • Fraudulent contract
  • Extreme cruelty
  • Neglect of duty
  • Imprisonment of the other spouse
  • Habitual intoxication
