What are the grounds for divorce in Ohio? Wait, you may have heard that Ohio is a no-fault divorce state. Ohio does have no fault-grounds, but you still have to prove grounds if you want a divorce and your spouse does not. If your spouse does not want the divorce, they may be able to stop you.
Ohio Revised Code 3105.01 (R.C. 3105.01) and Ohio Revised Code 3105.17 (R.C. 3105.17) set forth the grounds for divorce.
I am often asked: can you force your spouse into a divorce? Many parties get divorced by agreement, otherwise known as a dissolution. While getting divorced by agreement can be less expensive, save time, and be less emotionally draining, sometimes the parties cannot reach an agreement or one spouse refuses to get divorced. While most divorcing couples would simply agree that they are incompatible, otherwise known as stipulating to incompatibility, Ohio provides for a number of grounds for divorce.
