Divorce is a common legal issue that affects many Georgia families each year. From households across the state and in every type of neighborhood, individuals decide that it is a better option to live apart than it is to continue to live with their spouses. However, divorce has been viewed differently at different periods of time in the country. While it is now an acceptable option for those who wish to pursue it, it was once a stigmatized practice.
People in Georgia probably know intuitively that divorce is a stressful time for all involved. Since people are not always thinking straight during this difficult time, it is fairly common for them to make important financial mistakes during a divorce that can also, in some cases, have legal implications as well.
Most divorces here in Georgia are no-fault. Such divorces are based on the general ground of a marriage being “irretrievably broken,” and no fault needs to be proven for the divorce to go through. How long does a no-fault divorce take?
