Filing:

When you use OnlineDivorce.com, we help you fill out your divorce paperwork using a simple online questionnaire. You can fill it out alone or with the assistance of your spouse. Then, you will need to get a signature from your spouse and you can file the divorce forms with your local court. In Georgia, you will typically file with the courthouse in the county in which you currently reside. If a petitioner is not currently a resident, but a defendant is, divorce is typically filed in the county where the defendant resides.

The actual filing process is explained in our detailed court-filing instructions that we provide along with your completed divorce forms. You can also obtain assistance from your local courthouse by calling or stopping by.

After the initial filing, you may need to follow up if there are any issues with your documents. When you use OnlineDivorce.com, we allow you to make small adjustments to your forms as requested by the court at no additional charge. Our goal is to help you obtain your divorce with as little hassle and stress as possible using our online divorce documents preparation service.

Residency:

Every state has specific requirements where divorcing couples must establish residency within the state they are divorcing. Georgia is no exception.

To file for divorce in Georgia, one or the other spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months prior to filing. The divorce will not be granted until at least 30 days after filing.

There are many ways to prove that residency has been established. The easiest way is if one or both spouses have a valid and in-date Georgia driver’s license, ID card or voter’s registration card which was issued at least six months before filing for divorce. If this is not the case, it may be possible to establish residency, by having someone who knows you or your spouse testify that you have lived in the state for at least six months. Additionally, it may be possible to use an Affidavit of Corroborating Witness form, and it should serve as proof you’ve lived in the state a minimum of six months.

Valid grounds to get divorce in Georgia

Georgia flag

Grounds for an online divorce using OnlineDivorce.com are the same as they would be for any divorce within the State of Georgia. Grounds are merely the reason for divorce, and the state must approve them.

 

There are two usual reasons for divorce in Georgia - those are (no) fault and also general reasons. If you wish to for divorce in Georgia, the correct grounds will need to be established. Both spouses should be part of the process of establishing these grounds, and both must back up and agree to the grounds, unless the spouse who is filing divorce is attempting to prove otherwise to the court, which would occur in a CONTESTED divorce, rather than an uncontested case.

 

No-fault reasons for divorce in Georgia include:

#1

An irretrievable breakdown of the marriage in which there is not an expectation of reconciliation. [Code of Georgia Annotated; 19-5-3].

 

General reasons for divorce in Georgia include:

 

#1

Impotence;

#2

Adultery (infidelity);

#3

Conviction of and imprisonment for a period of two years or more for an offense involving moral turpitude;

#4

Alcoholism and/or drug addiction of either spouse;

#5

Confinement for incurable insanity;

#6

Separation of the spouses caused by mental illness;

#7

Willful desertion or abandonment;

#8

Cruel and inhuman treatment that may endanger the life of the spouse;

#9

Habitual drunkenness;

#10

The consent obtained to marriage was gotten by fraud, under duress, or by force;

#11

The spouse lacked the mental capacity to consent (this also includes temporary incapacity that results from drug or alcohol use);

#12

The wife was pregnant by another man at the time of the marriage which was unknown to the husband; and

#13

Incest. [Code of Georgia Annotated; 19-5-3].

 

It’s important to understand that some of these grounds would have to be proved while the no-fault divorce doesn’t require proof.

OnlineDivorce reviews

Wesley H., Missouri
I started my divorce on my own, spending loads of money on lawyer visits in the beginning. So I decided to google for other ways and using this site was so much more simple!
James V., Texas
I had a very successful business at the time. So, making sure I had the right forms was very very important during my divorce. I was so surprised at how easy and smooth this process was.
Chloe J., Florida
After years of a tumultuous marriage, I finally decided that I needed to reclaim my life. I was looking for how to go about it and came across this site and they simplified and made the process of divorce easy for me. I never thought it would’ve been possible.
Will S., Colorado
Stress-free and easy! I was initially gonna hire a lawyer but I found online divorce the next best option. No muss, no fuss divorce. No big legal words that I’d have to have read 10 times to understand!
Marco P., California
California is expensive and divorce can be even more expensive in the end but I can say that this site payed everything out for me to follow, from child support to alimony. My ex agreed to go this way as well so it was a much less expensive option for us.
Tamara B., Nevada
Because of the whole dissolution of the marriage, I was struggling with two children and just in limbo with my husband at the time because of child support and alimony. I was a stay-at-home mom for 10 years. I just want to say that this site helped me sort it out. Thank you.
Theresa S., New York
I live in upstate NY and unfortunately one day I found myself in a situation for divorce. I was all out of whack, needed answers to take action. Enough was enough so I did it on this site. Everything was clear to understand, all forms and what to put in which box.
Livy B., Illinois
Onlinedivorce.com is the bomb! I mean, using it was so easy to follow. So, if you find yourself in this situation do your divorce here if possible. Documents for all stages, alimony, child support and all!

Custody of the child in Georgia

Custody of the child

In the State of Georgia, the court wants to create a custody situation that is comfortable for the children and both parents. In most cases, joint legal custody and some form of shared physical custody will fulfill this need. If the family situation is not stable and the child may be harmed mentally, physically or emotionally by a shared custody plan, the court will decide this direction. In these cases visitation (supervised or otherwise) may be deemed a better option to keep the child in contact with the non-supervisory parent.

In some cases, custody can be set up as a short-term solution to be revisited at a later date if the family or living situation is expected to change dramatically.

Joint or sole custody may be granted, based upon what is in the best interests of the child or children and a consid­eration of the following factors:

  • The suitability of each parent as caregiver;
  • The overall psychological and emotional, and development of the child;
  • The ability of the parents to communicate on an ongoing basis with one another;
  • The past and continuing care that the parents have provided for the child;
  • Parental support for the other parent’s continuing relationship with the child;
  • The wishes of the child (giving consideration to the child’s age and assumed maturity);
  • The overall presumed safety of the child;
  • The location in relation to each other of the parents;
  • Any custodial agreements that have been made between the parents; and
  • Any history of spousal or child abuse.

There is a predisposition against awarding joint legal or physical custody in the state of Georgia when there is any history of domestic abuse. [Code of Georgia Annotated; 19-9-1 to 19-9-51].

Rules for child support in Georgia

Both parents are considered to be responsible for the support of any minor children of the marriage. The court may at times award child sup­port from either parent or both parents, based on the children’s customary needs and the parents’ ability to pay such support. There are no specific factors for consideration which are set out in the statute. However, there are Georgia State official child support guidelines written out in the statute that will be followed in almost all cases in which the parents cannot reach an agreement. In these cases, there are factors that are followed in exceptional circumstances. The special circumstances can and do include:

  • The current age of the children;
  • A child’s medical costs or special needs;
  • Educational costs beyond public school;
  • Daycare or after school care costs;
  • Shared physical custody arrangements created by the parents or court;
  • A parent’s support obligations to their existing household;
  • Any and all hidden income of a parent;
  • The income of the parent who has custody;
  • Contributions of both of the parents;
  • Any exceptional and extreme economic circumstances;
  • A parent’s own special needs;
  • Long term spending levels of this family;
  • The cost of health and other insurance coverage for the child or children; and
  • Any extraordinary travel expenses accrued for visitation. [Code of Georgia Annotated; 19-5-12, 19-6-14, and 19-6-15.].

Rules for spousal support in Georgia

Rules for spousal support

Alimony, which is sometimes referred to as spousal support, is at times ordered by the court to help one spouse live and comfortably exist in a manner established during marriage after the divorce. Assistance may be decided together upon by the couple before filing or it may be awarded by the court in a contested marriage dissolution case.

Permanent or short-term alimony can and at times will be awarded to either spouse, unless the separation was caused by one specific spouse’s desertion or adultery. Here are a few factors are which may be considered:

  • The contribution that the spouses made to acquiring the marital property, which may include any contribution of a spouse as homemaker, in childcare, at home education, and serving towards career-building of the other spouse;
  • The length of the marriage;
  • The financial picture and overall resources of each spouse;
  • The age and overall physical and emotional wellness of both of the spouses;
  • The value of each spouse’s separate property which has been accrued ;
  • The earning capacity that each spouse may have;
  • Any fixed debts or liabilities of either of the two spouses;
  • The standard of living that was established during the course of the marriage; and
  • The time that is deemed necessary for a spouse to acquire adequate education to enable him or her to find employment that will fill the needs of the family. [Code of Georgia Annotated; 19-6-1+].

Property division in Georgia

Property division

When a couple chooses to divorce in Georgia, they must distribute property in a fair and agreeable manner.

Georgia is considered to be an “equitable distribution” state. The courts will distribute the marital property which is to include any gifts and inheritances, equitably between the two spouses. There are no additional mitigating factors that are to be considered specified according to Georgia State Law. [Code of Georgia Annotated; 19-5-13 and Georgia Case Law].
