The Quickest Way to Get a Divorce in GA

Posted on: August 12th, 2013

Georgia Uncontested Divorce, quickest way to get thereIf you’re looking to file for a divorce in Georgia and want it to be completed as quickly as possible so you can move on with your life, you do have some options, but even the fastest route will take a minimum of a month. Also, it may not be in your best interests to complete your divorce as quickly as possible, for a variety of reasons. Here are a few things you need to know about the time it takes to get a divorce in Georgia.

By far, the fastest way to get a divorce in Georgia is to pursue an uncontested divorce, but as mentioned earlier, depending on your specific circumstances this might not be best for you. Our thorough and expert Atlanta-based divorce attorneys can advise you based on your particular situation, but basically an uncontested divorce means that you and your spouse agree on all points of the divorce. This may sound fairly simple, but it actually becomes quite complex. Certain aspects of the divorce that you might think won’t be an issue can become very contentious.

As noted earlier, our experienced top-notch family law and divorce attorneys will work with you to determine which aspects of the divorce you may need to dispute to protect your interests. In that case, when it comes to your children or your financial future, these are not issues to take lightly and simply agree upon just to speed up the process. If what is best for you means longer divorce proceedings, our Georgia divorce lawyers might recommend that you should be patient to ensure the outcome of the divorce you seek.

All that being said, however, if you believe that you and your spouse are capable of negotiating and agreeing on all the terms of the divorce, then our attorneys can help you quickly process an uncontested divorce in Georgia. The benefits of a Georgia uncontested divorce are that you and your former spouse might be able to maintain positive relations after the divorce, which is especially important if you have joint child custody. Another benefit, as noted above, is that an uncontested divorce can be completed fairly quickly in Georgia. Again, our Atlanta divorce attorneys will help you decide what’s best for you and what is possible under Georgia law, so that you can make the best decision possible for your future.
