A dissolution is a process where both spouses are in mutual agreement of separating. Property division, child custody, and child support will be negotiated before the dissolution is filed. The marriage will typically dissolve and end within 30 to 90 days of filing.



A divorce is when a marriage ends without the agreement of one of the spouses, or when a spouse is absent. Unlike a dissolution, reasons for divorce must be presented. Property division, child custody, and child support can either be negotiated or will be settled in court. If the divorce is contested, the process may become lengthy.
