Uncontested Divorce in Ohio
As Explained by a Willoughby Divorce Lawyer
Most people think of
divorce as a heated courtroom battle, but the truth is that most divorces are
quiet, cooperative, and civil. Uncontested divorce is the most common
form of marriage dissolution because it is simpler, faster, and more cost-effective.
It also does not involve the emotional stress that is common with litigated,
contested divorce cases.
Axelrod Law Office is prepared to represent and guide you through the uncontested
divorce process. If you and the other party believe that you can agree
on each area of your divorce, then do not hesitate to speak with a Willoughby
divorce attorney from our firm and discuss your options.
Collaborative Divorce & Mediation in Ohio
Uncontested divorce can be achieved in two different ways, both of which

unbiased, third-party mediator who oversees and guides the two parties
as they outline the terms of their divorce. Mediation can be used for
the entire divorce, or it may be ordered by a family law judge during
a contested divorce case if the judge wants the two parties to come to
their own agreement on a single aspect of their divorce (such as custody
