In Ohio, some couples, for a variety of reasons, wish to end their marriage without asking the courts to award a divorce to either party.

Sometimes religious reasons will cause parties to ask a court to divide marital property, allocate parental rights and responsibilities and/or allocate debt without actually divorcing the parties.
