770-609-1247 | Contested Divorce Lawyers Roswell GeorgiaIf a couple decides to divorce but are having trouble reaching resolutions after that, they could file a contested divorce to determine conclusions with the guidance of the local Superior Court and any hired attorneys. Typically, contested divorces take more time and are not normally done without attorneys because legal complexities can arise when both parties are aiming for different conclusions. However, attaining a lot of knowledge on the court procedure and organizing your case well can help facilitate the procedure as well as possibly gain more advantages towards your favor.

Georgia law states that you must file a financial disclosure affidavit with the court to provide information on your current budget, assets, and debts. A copy of this information must be exchanged with your spouse after you file your complaint to your local Supreme Court. Afterwards, Georgia court allows you to request for temporary orders during a pending divorce if necessary. Temporary hearings not only assist during visitation and support issues but also prevent individuals from harassment or breaking marital assets until the final divorce decision arrives.

If one of the disagreement points centers around children or settlement, the court could appoint a guardian ad litem who acts as both an evaluator and a mediator. The guardian ad litem would gather observations on the situations and make recommendations to the court. If agreements are met, going to trial can be bypassed, but if not the divorce will go to trial. You can choose for a trial by jury or a trial by a judge alone. However, Georgia law only allows a judge to decide custody issues. Besides those, the jury can decide on financial and property issues while the judge will define your parenting plan.

Will I Have to Go to Court for My Divorce?
