Divorce Vs. Dissolution Of Marriage

A divorce is generally where the parties do not agree on an amicable separation. It is started by filing a complaint and giving a reason for the divorce. On the other hand, a dissolution of marriage is when both parties reach an agreement before anything is filed with a court.

Dissolution is a no-fault legal proceeding to terminate your marriage. The parties file a joint petition and a full agreement with the court, and request that their marriage be terminated. This can ensure a smooth process that keeps control of the outcome and decisions with the two people involved, and out of the hands of the court.
