The Process Explained
Dissolution of marriage is the termination, including legal responsibilities and duties, of marriage. The dissolution of marriage does not make a marriage null and void, as in annulments, but it ends the marital status of a couple, permitting them to marry once again.
The legal procedure for dissolution of marriage may also involve matters of child custody, spousal support, distribution of property, child support, and division of debt. These issues are usually secondary in nature and result from a divorce.
A dissolution of marriage cannot legally be finalized earlier than six months from the date the court petition is submitted.
