Do I Need a Lawyer for Uncontested Divorce?
It is not required that you have an attorney, but it is recommended that
you have one to protect your best interests.
Here are some examples of why having a lawyer is a good idea:
When it comes to
marital property, Georgia law requires that all assets and debts be divided equitably.
This does not necessarily mean that the split will be equal - it simply
means that the distribution will be "fair" to both parties.
An attorney can advocate for you and make sure that the distribution is
in your favor.
If minor children are involved, parents will be required to create a
parenting plan that outlines legal and physical
child support agreements. We can look over your plans and agreements to ensure that
your rights and well-being are not compromised.
If one or more of these issues cannot be resolved favorably either through
mediation or alternative dispute resolution, we are not afraid to litigate
on your behalf to protect your interests. We have extensive experience
preparing and trying a variety of cases in court.
How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take?
No two divorces are the same, even when uncontested. Therefore, it's
impossible to give an exact answer regarding how long an uncontested divorce
takes. However, we can confidently say that uncontested divorces are generally
much faster than litigated divorces.
You and your spouse are in control when your divorce is uncontested. You
also do not have to wait on busy court schedules since you do not have
to appear before a judge until you are ready to have your divorce finalized.
Therefore, uncontested divorces are generally the quickest divorce option
How Much Does an Uncontested Divorce Cost?
Again, it is not possible to know exactly how much an uncontested divorce
cost, because each case is unique. You will need to pay the filing fee
at the court in the county where you are getting divorced, plus any additional
fees. In general, it costs less than $500 to file for divorce in Georgia,
but it is also highly recommended that you hire an attorney to help you
so that no errors are made.
Get in touch today to explain your situation to a lawyer and get a better
idea on how much your divorce may cost.
