A Better Approach to Family Law

Cincinnati Dissolution of Marriage Lawyers

Dissolution: An Alternative to the Divorce Process

Both divorce and dissolution will legally end your marriage. The dissolution process gives you more control over the outcome, more privacy and more flexibility to fashion results that fit your family.

What Is Dissolution of Marriage?

In a dissolution, you and your spouse must agree on all issues involved in ending your marriage. With the help of your attorneys, you will decide how to divide your property and how to manage child custody and child support and spousal support issues.

At Brinkman & Associates, our family law attorneys realize that working through these issues can be extremely challenging. It can be difficult to sit across the table from a person you would rather not deal with. We work to build consensus while protecting your interests.

Advantages of Dissolution

Maintaining control of the outcome is the primary advantage of a dissolution. It can also be less costly than divorce. Dissolution, especially when employing the collaborative law process, helps preserve the family's privacy and is generally a more thorough, healthy and interest-based approach. Dissolution also allows you to control the timing of events. You can get it done in a week or drag it out over several years, if you prefer. In a divorce, the court is in charge of the calendar as well as the decisions.

Karen Brinkman was brilliant in court; I obtained full custody of my daughter and am extremely grateful.  She made my family, my witnesses, the other professionals, and myself very comfortable by constantly educating us and keeping us informed of the law and the legal procedures.  She deserves a lot of credit for her careful wording of motions and entries and her ability to take charge of out-of-control situations.

Karen and Tamara went into action on behalf of my son and granddaughter.  Their caring attitudes come through in everything they say and do.  I am sure that I will be looking to Brinkman & Associates for legal advice and for common sense answers whenever I have a family law question in the future.

I was very thankful that I had Mrs. Brinkman on my side when I went to court regarding a modification of child support that had been requested by my former husband in the Hamilton County, Ohio, Juvenile Court.  She returns my calls and responds to my emails promptly and thoroughly.
