Dating during the divorce can vastly complicate the process and impact the time for ending the marriage.
Others start dating right away, as a distraction or to combat feelings of loneliness.
And in some cases, an affair triggered the divorce.
This is the Georgia court where the divorce will be filed.
The court will assign a case number and have jurisdictional rights to facilitate and grant the orders concerning, but not limited to: property and debt division, support, custody, and visitation.
The requirements are as follows: No court shall grant a divorce to any person who has not been a bona fide resident of this state for six months before the filing of the petition for divorce, provided that any person who has been a resident of any United States army post or military reservation within this state for one year next preceding the filing of the petition may bring an action for divorce in any county adjacent to the United States army post or military reservation; and provided, further, that a nonresident of this state may file a petition for divorce, in the county of residence of the respondent, against any person who has been a resident of this state and of the county in which the action is brought for a period of six months prior to the filing of the petition.
(Georgia Code - Sections: 19-5-5) The Petition for Divorce must declare the appropriate Georgia grounds upon which the divorce is being sought.
Applying for a marriage license and participating in some type of ceremony also takes time.
Unless you and your spouse have involved in the dissolution of your marriage, you are not going to be quickly divorced.
A party shall not be entitled to alimony if it is established by a preponderance of the evidence that the marital discord was caused by that party's adultery or desertion.
Alimony may be awarded in accordance with the needs of the party seeking alimony, and the ability of the other party to pay.
It will take a certain amount of time to reach an agreement with or without attorneys or with mediators and/or arbitrators.
