Divorce Lawyers Family Law Attorneys GeorgiaIf you are seeking a divorce in Georgia, you should first decide whether it will be contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce means that you and your partner agree on all of the details of the divorce or are willing to work through them upon filing for divorce. An uncontested case does not usually go to trial and can be resolved in as little as 31 days after filing. Due to the fact that both parties are in agreement in this type of divorce, it is usually much quicker and less expensive than a contested case. Consequently, it is less traumatic and stressful and can enable you to remain in amicable relations with your partner post-divorce.

A contested divorce case will have to be decided by a judge, and can take months to make its way through the court system. Contested divorce cases can be filed on one of the twelve fault grounds for divorce, or a no-fault ground afforded by Georgia law. Issues that need to be addressed include division of marital property/assets and marital debt, alimony, child support and custody as well as other matters specific to the case. In most cases, a temporary hearing will be held to address these issues on a temporary basis, that is throughout the duration of the case. From there forward, the process of discovery will take up to six months, enabling both parties to gather information about the other party and build a case before it goes to trial. However, most contested divorce cases are settled by the parties before actually going to a trial.

What Is an Arranged Marriage and How Is It Different From a Sham Marriage? How do you “find” a person you want to marry? The answer is you don’t because you first fall in love with a person and later you decide to get marry with that person. However, in some countries, this may not be the case where they still have arranged marriages. Unlike love marriages which is more common in the US and Europe, in arranged marriages you find someone that has been picked out for you based on your (and often your family’s) background. It is more like...
