Knowing Divorce Law in your state

Divorce is also known as the “dissolution of marriage”. When a marriage is ended or terminated in a legal process by a judge or other legal authority, according to the Divorce Law of the state the couple seeking divorce live in. The Siemon Law Firm, Marietta, Georgia, specializes in ‘Easing Family Transitions With Integrity’ with expert knowledge of Divorce Law in the state of Georgia. 

Understanding “Divorce”

Divorce or “dissolution of marriage” is not just the ending of marriage for the couple, there are many aspects attached to the process. While the focus is on the couple separating from each other legally, and, in effect becoming “single” again, and legally free to marry again if they so wish, there are many more considerations ranging from how the finances, property, and assets will be divided, to which parent will get “custody” of the children and how often the other parent can meet them. Divorce Law for all these aspects differs from state to state, as do the procedures and policies.

Highlights of Divorce Law in Georgia

  • In Georgia, Divorce is called “Total Divorce” and legal separations are not recognized in the state.
  • At least one of the spouses should have been living in the state for at least six months before starting legal proceedings for divorce.
  • There are thirteen grounds on which one can apply for a divorce, including adultery, drug addiction, and mental illness that cannot be cured.
  • “Equitable Distribution State”- this means that any property that has been bought after the marriage will have to be divided between both the spouses in an equitable manner.
  • “No-Fault Divorce” state- Unlike in some other states where it is necessary to prove that adultery has been committed to obtaining a divorce, Georgia does not require adultery as a ground for dissolution of a marriage. A divorce can be obtained without implicating or proving that the other party has committed adultery.
