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 you have together.
Georgia Residency Requirements
At least one spouse from the marriage must live in Georgia for six months before filing for divorce.
Grounds for Divorce
In Georgia, no-fault divorces are based on the grounds that the marriage is broken and can't be fixed.
