Understanding Divorce in Georgia
Like most states, Georgia is a “no-fault divorce” state, meaning that no specific reason needs to be given in order for the divorce to be initiated. The spouses can simply state that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.” Depending on how well the spouses are able to communicate civilly with one another, they may negotiate the terms of the divorce either collaboratively with their attorneys or opt to leave several decisions up to the judge to determine. During the divorce proceeding, the judge will consider several factors when deciding how to divide up the marital assets and debts, as well as determining alimony (also known as spousal support) payments, if necessary. If the divorcing couple has children, a child custody arrangement will be negotiated, as well as a child support agreement. Once all of these aspects have been addressed, the judge will finalize the divorce, and you will be free to move forward and onto a new life path.
