Requirements for Divorce in Georgia

In Georgia, there are a few requirements that must be met in order to file for divorce. One of these requirements is residency - the individual who files for the divorce must have been a resident of Georgia for at least 6 months prior to the filing. Additionally, Georgia is a no-fault divorce state, meaning that for situations such as adultery, fraud, desertion, and violence do not require one spouse to prove that the divorce is the “fault” of the other. There are multiple ways you can file for a divorce, and we will be able to advise you on the best way to proceed for your particular situation.

The fact of the matter is the whole process of filing for divorce, going to court, facing a judge, and arguing your case is draining - not to mention complicated. You are already dealing with one of the most stressful periods of your life, teaching yourself every step of the legal divorce process on top of that can easily become too much. Attorney Judith Montgomery and the law firm of Atlanta Family and Immigration Law is here to help you navigate your divorce and give you peace of mind.
