Marietta's Divorce Process 

Divorce can be one of the most stressful periods in your life. In addition to the emotional drain it causes, the uncertainty of what lies ahead adds to the stress you are facing. While the "big four" issues in a divorce (custody, child support, alimony and equitable division of assets) are addressed throughout the site, a client's understanding of the divorce process helps them gain the necessary knowledge to know what to expect when initiating a divorce.

Types of Divorce 

There are two types of divorce - Contested and Uncontested Divorce. If you are thinking about filing for divorce, one of the first questions an attorney will ask you is whether your divorce is going to be contested or uncontested. Often, the answer to that question is not simple.

Contested vs. Uncontested

There are two types of divorce - Contested and Uncontested Divorce. If you are thinking about filing for divorce, one of the first questions an attorney will ask you is whether your divorce is going to be contested or uncontested. Georgia laws, however, are more complex than you might imagine. Even though you may be able to agree on all or most issues, you want an experienced divorce & custody lawyer to review the terms of any agreement so that you get the outcome you seek. In particular, an uncontested divorce with minor children requires unique legal pleadings that must comply with strict Georgia Child Support Guidelines. Moreover, most counties require parties to file an executed Final Judgment Decree of Divorce, which will incorporate a Settlement Agreement, Parenting Plan, Child Support Worksheet, and Child Support Addendum, all of which must strictly comply with applicable statutes.

Contested Divorce 

A contested divorce merely implies that the parties are currently unable to resolve issues related to custody, child support, alimony and equitable division of assets arising out a divorce. When the parties are unable to reconcile their differences, it is important to file for divorce to protect your rights. Even if one of the issues addressed above are unresolved, the parties will proceed with a contested divorce until such time as these matters become resolved through effective negotiations, mediation, or a Final Judgment made by the assigned Judge.
