Divorce in Georgia

In the state of Georgia, a divorce may be filed as either fault or no-fault. A person who files for the divorce may cite a reason for the divorce, or, in the case of a no-fault divorce, may allude to irreconcilable differences. Most couples choose to file a no-fault divorce, as the process is typically faster. In the event of a fault divorce, there are 12 different ways a divorce may be legally cited as another person’s responsibility, and the fault must be proven in court.

Grounds for a divorce in Georgia include:

  1. Adultery
  2. Cruel treatment
  3. Conviction and imprisonment for more than 2 years
  4. Desertion for at least 1 year
  5. Habitual intoxication
  6. Habitual drug use
  7. Incurable mental illness
  8. Intermarriage between related persons
  9. Mental incapacity at the time of marriage

Complex Divorce Situations

High-Asset Divorce

Divorces involving a high number of assets are often more complex than typical divorces. When there are more properties, funds, investments, and possessions to divide, it may take longer to reach settlements and could lead to more conflict. However, our experienced firm will use our financial resources to evaluate your assets and determine how to divide any shared properties equitably.

Children in Divorce

Our firm will also help you with any legal issues pertaining to the children you and your spouse shared in your marriage. From child custody arrangements to child support agreements, our firm will help you negotiate a plan that you and your children can be happy with.

Spousal Support

Whether you plan to ask for spousal support or expect to receive a request to pay spousal support, we can evaluate your financial situation and determine the right course of action for you. We will use our knowledge of alimony laws to come up with a plan that best suits your financial plan and helps you maintain the standard of living you are accustomed to.
