Uncontested Divorce in Georgia

An uncontested divorce is a case where both spouses agree on all legally required aspects of the divorce. In an uncontested divorce, the husband and wife agree on how to divide all of their property (assets) and of the debts of the marriage. If the husband and wife have minor children, they will also agree on the child custody, visitation and child support amounts. Finally, the parties will also agree if any amount of spousal support or alimony is to be paid.

Once the parties agree on all of the above terms, they are ready to sign a Georgia uncontested divorce settlement agreement (along with several other related forms) setting forth the terms of the big five divorce issues:

The agreement between the parties is drafted into a document formally called a Divorce Settlement Agreement which is filed with the court.  Cases that involve children will also require a Parenting Plan agreement and Child Support Addendum agreement to be signed and filed with the court. Once the husband and wife have signed all of the divorce paperwork, our Georgia divorce lawyers can file the documents with the appropriate Georgia Superior Court and request the court grant a judgment for divorce. This can often be done without the parties even having to go to court. The uncontested divorce process is much easier when using an experienced divorce attorney. In Georgia, an uncontested divorce can usually be granted in less than sixty (60) days.  Read More >>

Contested Divorce in Georgia

In a contested divorce, the parties disagree on one or more terms of the divorce, or the other spouse (defendant) cannot be found to reach an agreement. When this happens, the person seeking the divorce is left with only one option which is the filing a petition / complaint for divorce, formally referred to as a Complaint for Divorce, with the court with no agreement with their spouse in place. In Georgia, a contested divorce can only be obtained through a court proceeding (specifically in Superior Court). A copy of this complaint is served on the other spouse, usually by the sheriff or private process server. If the spouse cannot be found and served, then service by publication is usually an option. The spouse who has been served with a complaint should consult a lawyer as soon as possible for help answering and possibly contesting statements in the complaint. The formal, written “answer” to the petition for divorce (also know as a complaint for divorce) is due with thirty (30) days of receiving service of the petition.

The disagreements that lead to a contested divorces in Georgia often involve one or more of the following issues:

In a contested divorce case, the parties must resolve by settlement the issues out of court, or a judge will make the final decisions for the parties. The advantages of settling a divorce case are that both parties will have significant input to the final divorce agreement. However, if a judge decides the final issues, both parties lose a great deal of control over the final result. Sometimes it is worth letting the court decide the issues, especially if the other party is being very unreasonable. However, two reasonable minded people can usually come to an agreement that makes both parties happier than what they might have gotten in a court trial.  Read More >>

Men and Father’s Divorce Issues

Men are often confronted with divorce when they least expect it. Several studies show that the proportion of divorces initiated by women ranged around sixty percent (60%) for most of the 20th century and climbed to more than seventy percent (70%) in the late 1960’s when no-fault divorces became more available. In addition to usually being the party served with a divorce rather than filing the case, men face several unique issues and challenges in a divorce case.  Read More >>

Women and Mother’s Divorce Issues

It is not uncommon for a woman filing a divorce to do extensive pre-planning in regard to moving assets, separating accounts, lining up witnesses and making plans with friends and family to obtain affidavits to use in court. Women frequently make plans well in advance of filing divorce to get alimony, child support and child custody as soon as possible at a temporary hearing. Furthermore, women seeking divorce have usually made a list of assets they want before even meeting with their attorney the first time.  Read More >>
