COVID-19 Procedures

Due to the State of Georgia’s emergency orders we must temporarily restrict our operations.  We are mostly working from home.  But, we are still able to start and process uncontested divorce matters.  Temporarily, we have suspended operations at out office in Marietta but are processing all Georgia uncontested matters from out Georgia Coastal office in Saint Marys.

Because we are very strong technologically and because we use mostly paperless processes, the impact is not as great as it would be for a traditional law firm.

However, Georgia law requires that we have actual paper documents that both parties have signed in the presence of a notary public before we can file a divorce case with the Court.

Naturally, that means that our clients must send those physical/original/paper documents to us for review and filing.  With our restricted operations, that is problematic.  So, please do NOT send any documents to our office without first checking for full instructions on what to do.  In some situations, you will be asked to send the documents to the home address of one of our staff.  We will coordinate that with you by email.

AT NO TIME SHOULD YOU SEND ANY DOCUMENTS TO US WITHOUT FIRST EMAILING MR. JONES.  He will then help you with detailed instructions.

Many of the Courts in Georgia have temporarily and drastically changed their procedures and the result is that, in most cases, it takes considerably longer to complete any court case  — including an uncontested divorce.  At times like these it is even more important to have an experienced attorney to represent you with the Court and handle your case as efficiently as possible under these unusual circumstances.

Stay safe!
