Helping Clients Divorce Amicably And Efficiently
When a marriage ends, it’s common to have many mixed feelings. On one hand, you’re about to embark on the next chapter of your life. On the other, however, a relationship that has significantly impacted your life is about to change. In addition to the emotional burden of pursuing a divorce, you and your former spouse have many details about your new lives to determine. Because emotions can run so high, a relationship that has previously been amicable may quickly turn sour.
If you’re seeking a divorce, get legal counsel before you’re at risk for losing valuable assets or time with your children. It may not seem necessary now, but the sooner we can create a plan, the better the opportunity we have to assist you in efficient, cordial divorce proceedings.
An Attorney Can Help You Make The Important Decisions
In Georgia, you don’t need a specific reason to divorce your spouse because it is a no-fault divorce state. However, you do need to be separated from your spouse for a period of time, generally around 30 days, prior to seeking a divorce. Although you may live with your former spouse while separated, you may not have intimate relations. In addition, 30 days need to pass after one spouse files for divorce before an official divorce can be granted. This means that even the most efficient divorce will likely take at least a few months.
Even if you and your former spouse agree on a divorce, there are many details to determine. For example, if you share children, you will need to discuss child support and custody. Even if you don’t share children, you will likely need to decide how your assets will be split, who will retain ownership of investments and retirement assets and how property will be divided. A skilled attorney can ask the questions you didn’t know about and help you determine what is most important to you in the next stage of your life.
