Divorce/Child Custody

An Experienced GA Divorce Litigation Lawyer Helps Navigate Confusing Waters

Georgia divorce laws are limited to specific petitions, such as adultery, cruelty (including domestic violence), habitual drug or alcohol abuse, convictions of crimes resulting in two or more years of incarceration. Refusal to reconcile, impotency, and desertion lasting more than one year also qualify, as will pregnancy by a man other than the unknowing husband. Mental incapacity, a marriage deemed too close by kinship, or a union based on “force, menace, duress or fraud” is also acceptable grounds for a claim. Proving your case may be complicated, though. An experienced GA divorce litigation lawyer helps navigate the confusing waters of obtaining a divorce.
