Georgia's divorce laws are no-fault based. The most common ground for divorce is to cite irreconcilable differences, meaning no one is at fault for the marriage's failure. Other grounds like cruelty or adultery may also be invoked during a divorce. In Georgia, at least one party must have been a Georgia resident for at least six months prior to filing for divorce.
In other words, neither party must prove the other one was at fault for the marriage's failure. To learn more about Georgia's divorce laws, see the following table and the in-depth descriptions below it.
We've all dreamed of finding lifelong love, but not every romance was made to last. Getting a divorce can have serious, long-term effects, both emotionally and legally. There are also strict legal requirements that cover everything from choosing a method of legal separation, to selecting where and how to file, to deciding how the property should be divided. The divorce process can be confusing, especially without legal assistance.
