There are often many factors that lead up to getting a divorce and many tough decisions to make. If you have decided to get a divorce or are considering doing so, you understand how stressful it is.

For some, divorce is a decision you make together when going separate ways seems like the best choice for everyone involved.
No matter why you are getting divorced, it can be a difficult time. There are so many things to consider, such as child custody and visitation, child support, the division of financial assets, and more. Emotions are high, and the decisions you make now will impact you and your family for years to come.

Why You Need a Lawyer
Divorcing couples commonly think that it will be easy enough to make decisions about dividing assets and negotiating child custody agreements on their own, without the help of a lawyer. However, through our years of experience, we have seen that when tensions are high, it is not easy to agree on these issues.
The details can be more complicated than you initially realized, and unexpected situations can come up that catch everyone off guard. Overall, the divorce process can take months and sometimes even years. It is important that you find an attorney you trust to help you navigate the legal challenges that come with this process.
By working with an experienced divorce attorney, you will be more likely to arrive at a fair financial decision and a child custody agreement that will be favorable for both parents as well as the children. Paying for a lawyer may feel like a heavy financial cost in the beginning, but down the road, you will look back and realize it was money well spent.

Frequently Asked Questions
The divorce process can feel overwhelming, but we are here to answer all of your questions. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions.
What are the grounds for divorce?
According to Georgia law, there are 13 grounds for divorce. One of them is that the marriage is “irretrievably broken”, which is considered a no-fault divorce. You will not need to prove fault to get a divorce based on this ground.
How long will the divorce process take?
The timeframe varies greatly from family to family. If the divorce is “uncontested,” meaning you come to an agreement outside of court on issues such as custody, child support, division of finances and property, etc., the divorce may be granted 31 days after it is filed. However, if it becomes necessary to decide any of these issues in court, the timing will depend on the court schedule. Sometimes it can take months or even years for a divorce to be finalized.
Can I file for divorce if I am still living with my spouse?
Yes, you can file for divorce while you are still living together. However, you must meet the legal definition of being separated, which means you cannot be having sexual relations.
