Divorce & Custody Cases in Georgia: More Important Information
Georgia Divorce Requirements
In order to be eligible to file for divorce in Georgia, at least one spouse has to have lived in Georgia for a minimum of six (6) months. In terms of grounds for divorce, Georgia has 13 grounds, including the “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage” (a no-fault ground for divorce) and 12 fault-related grounds, including adultery, desertion, etc.
Divorce is one way to end a marriage, but it may not be the only option for some couples. Depending on the circumstances of the marriage and the needs of the couple, it may also be possible to legally separate or annul the marriage. An experienced family lawyer like Jason Clark can evaluate your situation and help you determine – and successfully pursue – your best option for ending your marriage.
Mediation for Family Law Disputes
For divorce and custody cases, mediating the disputes, rather than taking them to court, can be a viable option when negotiation and civil communication between exes is possible. In fact, with mediation for family legal issues, obtaining faster, more cost-effective, and more favorable outcomes can be possible. And, again, Attorney Jason Clark can help you determine if this option may be right for you and your situation.
