Helping Clients With Georgia Uncontested Divorce Matters

Easy Georgia Divorce

Easy Georgia Divorce

Everyone considering a divorce wants it to be a fast, easy and inexpensive process.

One of the key questions that our clients nearly always ask is, “Do I have to go to court for my uncontested divorce?”

Using our services, there is typically no court appearance by anyone and no one even has to come to our office.  We can get you an easy divorce.  And, it could cost you below $500 (plus court costs).  Our typical flat fee for an easy divorce with no minor children is less than $500.  We sometimes charge more for complex cases and our fee does not include court costs.  If you have minor children, our flat fee starts at $895.  Even if you have minor children, we can get you a quick and easy divorce in Georgia that you can afford.

An uncontested divorce is an easy Georgia divorce.  Most of the time, in Georgia if you have an attorney to represent you in an uncontested divorce, you do not have to “got to Court” at all.  It is just an easy paperwork process.

We custom-prepare all of the necessary divorce documents (starting with your Settlement Agreement) and send them to you for review.  We make changes if necessary and then send you the final documents for signing.  After you and your spouse have signed all of the documents and returned them to us, we will file them in the correct Court.  We actually represent your officially with the Court. Then we will expedite completion of your case by the Judge and send you the final, signed divorce Decree.  You never have to worry about what your must do next or if the documents are correct for your easy divorce.  We take care of those details for you.

The overwhelming majority of our clients never need to come to our office and never go to Court.  We have created a simple process to make an uncontested divorce easy and relatively quick.  Best of all, an uncontested divorce costs much less than any other divorce — even if you have an attorney helping with it.  You can do an uncontested divorce in Georgia on your own (without an attorney) but it will not be as fast or easy and you most likely will have to go to Court.  In the end, you may find the process so frustrating that you just have to hire an attorney to complete the case.

To find out if your case is a good match for our easy divorce process, we recommend that you first complete the Client Inquiry/Intake Form. We can then tell you if you will have an uncontested Georgia divorce without going to court and quote a low, flat fee for your case.

Can We Complete Our Divorce Without a Court Appearance?

In Georgia, whether you can complete your divorce without a court appearance depends on several factors: whether the divorce is contested (or uncontested); the county in which the divorce is filed; the Judge who is assigned to your case; and whether you and your spouse have minor children together.  If your divorce is contested, then you always must go to court to compete its simply because you and your spouse have not reached an agreement on all of the divorce issues (such as property division, debs, child custody, child support and alimony).  Therefore, a Judge needs to make a final decision on the disputed issues and grant the final divorce.

In an easy  uncontested divorce, however, things can be different.  Whether you have to go to court to finalize an uncontested divorce can vary by county or even from Judge to Judge.

In Georgia, there are basically two ways to finalize an uncontested divorce once the parties have fully agreed on and signed a Settlement Agreement — by a final hearing, or by a “Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings.” Although Georgia law permits a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings if all issues are resolved, a few Judges still require the parties to come to court to complete the divorce regardless of any other circumstances. Other Judges require the parties to come to court to complete the divorce if they have minor children, but allow all other cases that do not involve minor children to be completed by a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings. Generally, a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings is only available to attorneys.  If the parties are representing themselves, they must have a final hearing.

Unfortunately, neither the parties nor the attorney(s) have any control over which Judge is assigned to the case or what the Judge is going to require in any particular case.  Therefore, although it may be frustrating, you and your spouse may end up having a final hearing to complete your divorce, even if all issues have already been resolved and documented in a Settlement Agreement.

We have designed our uncontested divorce process and selected counties in which we handle divorces.  We have done this to avoid the time, stress and aggravation (and cost) of a court appearance. In our process, our clients almost never have to appear in court to complete their uncontested divorce.  Additionally, we do not require clients in uncontested divorces to even come to our office.  We generally handle everything by telephone and online (email).  You will not find an easier, faster way to get a divorce.
