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:

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. However, this process is much easier when using an experienced divorce attorney. An uncontested finalized 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 defendant cannot be found. When this happens, the person seeking the divorce is left with only one option – the filing a “complaint” with the court. 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 may be 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 complaint is due with thirty (30) days of service of the complaint.

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

In a contested 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 are that both parties will have significant input to the final divorce agreement. However, if a judge decides the final issues – the 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 >>
