Georgia allows you to complete your divorce without an attorney if you and your spouse can come to an agreement on what to do with your property and how you will care for any children that you have.
Georgia Residency Requirements
At least one spouse from the marriage must have lived in Georgia for at least six months prior to filing the Divorce Petition.
Grounds For Divorce
A state approved reason must be provided when you file for divorce in Georgia. In Georgia, no-fault or uncontested divorces are based on the grounds that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" (neither spouse is at fault). DivorceWriter allows you to complete your own no-fault Georgia divorce.
