  • Uncontested Divorce - When both spouses agree on all issues including property, child support, custody, and visitation - the divorce can be resolved more quickly with minimal conflict. 
  • Contested Divorce - These can take a bit longer to finalize because it can take time to agree on matters of property division, child support and more.

FAQ

  • Separation

    In Georgia you can continue to reside together in the same marital home and be considered "separated". Georgia only requires that the parties are in a "bonafide state of separation", regardless as to whether they continued to reside in the same marital residence.

  • Waiting Periods

    Divorce in Georgia can take as little as thirty-one (31) days from the date of filing the divorce action, by signing a "Consent To Trial". This is only for "uncontested divorces", through a "Settlement Agreement" resolving all the issues pertaining to division of assets/property, marital debts, minor children, and so forth. However, when the divorce contested; however, the parties will, no doubt, engage in discovery to determine assets, debts, etc., prior to having a final hearing. Discovery could take up to six months from the date the Defendant files his/her answer.

  • Discovery

    Discovery includes interrogatories (questions that must be answered under oath), "requests for production of documents" or "notice to produce" which require the parties to turn over certain documents pertaining to property, finances, debts, investments, employment, etc. Discovery may also include depositions in which a party is required to testify under oath with all questions and testimony being taken down (typed) by a court reporter.

    Note: During the discovery period, phone records, social media accounts (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, etc.), text messages, e-mail, are all fair game.

  • Mediation

    Mediation is available to mediate the issues of the divorce action. Some courts require that the divorcing parties go to mediation. A mediator is an independent, neutral party who listens to the concerns of each party and attempts to help them reach a resolution. If some issues just cannot be resolved in mediation, then a “mediation agreement” will be signed by the parties as to those issues that were resolved. The remaining unresolved issues will be determined by the Court at trial.
