Cherokee County Uncontested Divorce
A Cherokee County uncontested divorce is the fastest, cheapest and least stressful way to divorce. Few divorce cases, including uncontested divorces, are completely free from disagreement. However, in a no-contest divorce, the disagreements are worked out prior to filing, thus simplifying the divorce proceedings, lowering your costs, and keeping much of your personal information out of the proceedings and off the public record.

Specifics about Cherokee County Uncontested Divorce
Typically, in an uncontested Cherokee County divorce, if you are represented by an attorney, you do not have to appear in court to complete the divorce if minor children are NOT involved. However, a court hearing is required to complete the divorce if minor children are involved. But, in general the decision of whether you must appear in court to complete an uncontested Cherokee County divorce is up to the judge to whom your divorce case is assigned.
If there must be a hearing to complete the case, we will appear at the hearing with you and typically there is no additional fee for going to the Court with you. We will not know whether a final hearing is going to be required until the divorce case is officially filed and a judge assigned.
Additionally, if minor children are involved in a contested or uncontested Cherokee County divorce, both you and your spouse will be required to prepare and submit a Domestic Relations Financial Affidavit to the Court. This is necessary so that the Court can determine if child support has been correctly calculated.
Cost of a Cherokee County Uncontested Divorce
Typically, our fee for an uncontested Cherokee County divorce is $425 if the case does not involve minor children and $949 if you and your spouse have minor children. However, our fee can vary slightly depending on the complexity of the issues. Our fee does not include the court costs which are $250 in Cherokee County.
We e-file all of the uncontested divorce documents for Cherokee County divorce cases. The filing fee and all e-filing costs are included in the court costs of $250. E-filing helps us move the uncontested divorce through the Cherokee County court system much more rapidly than manual filing.

Domestic Relations Financial Affidavits
Sometimes, the judge to whom your uncontested divorce case is assigned will require that you and your spouse complete and submit a Domestic Relations Financial Affidavit ("DRFA"). This is a standard form that is used to provide a wide variety of financial information to the Court. This is not required by every judge but we are providing the form to you so that you will have easy access to it if needed.
Typically, the DRFA is required in Cherokee County uncontested divorce cases that involve minor children so that the Court can determine whether child support has been properly calculated.
Here is the Domestic Relations Financial Affidavit in a blank form format and also as a fillable (soft) form. Either one of these can be used for any divorce case in Georgia. Both have some instructions included.
