Contact attorney Carl McCoy for answers.

Is Legal Separation Right For Me?

In Licking County, legal separation may be the best option under certain conditions such as:

  • Maintaining the health insurance in effect to cover pre-existing conditions
  • The couple does not meet Ohio's six-month residency requirement for filing a divorce, making a Licking County separation the only option until the residency requirement has been met.
  • The couple has personal or religious reasons that prevent them from getting a divorce

How Separation Becomes a Dissolution

Once a couple has obtained a Licking County legal separation agreement and has met all requirements, either party can file for a dissolution of marriage or divorce. The separation agreement can be incorporated into the final decree.
