In Roswell Georgia as well as the rest of the state, there are thirteen grounds for divorce. Twelve of those grounds are to prove that one party has committed wrongdoing to the other during the marriage and to define prevailing reasons for the dissolution. However, one of those grounds is the “no-fault” ground, which means that the marriage has been “irretrievably broken”. Because Georgia is a mixed state, you can file for an uncontested divorce under the “no-fault” ground, or a contested divorce under the remaining grounds. Grounds for Divorce >

You can also file for a divorce if you and your spouse have been separated for at least 30 days. However, you and your spouse can still be residing at the same address and be “separated” under Georgia divorce law. More specifically, before filing a divorce, the couple must be separated for at least thirty days and meet the Georgia residency requirements. Separation can entail living in the same house, but the couple cannot reside in the same room and/or share sexual relations. For residency requirements to be met, at least one of the married parties must have lived in Georgia for at least six months at the time the divorce cases is filed.

If the couple agrees on separation terms, the divorce process can be relatively short and painless.  However, if there are lingering disagreements without resolution, those issues can result in the divorce taking months and even years to process. These disagreements can arise from complications such as property problems, child custody issues, or child support difficulties.

Georgia is an equitable division state, so each spouse holds a personal right to his/her own income and can make decisions on any personal property independently. But in a divorce, each person’s right is not the only factor, so the judge holds authority to distribute marital property, albeit fairly. Georgia courts also start with the belief that children should have regular contact with their parents, so judges prefer joint custody measures although ultimately everything is determined by the children’s best interests. For child support, Georgia requires both parents to provide for their children through their own available resources.
