Most people do not know the difference between a dissolution and a divorce. Tthe end result is the same, however, dissolutuons are non-adversarial by design. The simplest explanation of a dissolution is that the parties have, or will agree on the terms between them and the court will make that a court order. A divorce can also have agreed terms (uncontested), however, if the parties cannot agree on the terms of the separation, the court will make a ruling on the matters and the courts ruling will become the order that the parties must follow.
Most people who choose a dissolution are already on good terms, but simply no longer want to be in the marital relationship. If you are concidering a divorce or dissolution, it is a good idea to concider how agreeable or not agreeable your soon to be ex-spouse will be during the process, and try to talk it over with them ahead of deciding which route you think you want to take.
If you believe that you can come to terms, a dissolution may be best. They are usually cheaper to file in the courts, because the court does not have to spend as much time on the matter. The legal fees are also generally cheaper. This firm, and other firms who do dissolutions, can offer flat fees for the legal fees.
