Good evening. I am the attorney assisting with your question. Your question is straightforward, so I am inclined to give a straightforward response. However, if clarification is needed, please do not hesitate to ask - my goal is your satisfaction.

There are no laws prohibiting adultery in the state of Ohio. It is not criminally illegal. It use to be that one could sue civilly over adultery in Ohio, but that law was revoked in 1985. It's still morally wrong and destructive to families, but it's not a legal matter.

Let me know if further clarification is needed, and please feel free to leave a positive rating once you are completely satisfied (it is how I receive credit for my answers). Thank you!

Do you know how much a dissolution will cost

It depends on how complex the case is, whether children are involved, how much property is involved, etc. It can cost anywhere from $500 to $5,000,000, but the typical cost when no attorneys are involved is around $500. The average cost with an attorney is usually around $5,000.

The only thing that is involved is kids

When kids are involved, my rule of thumb is to double the expected cost.
