An uncontested divorce is one way for couples to divorce in Georgia. The divorce is considered to be uncontested if both parties are in agreement when it comes to each issue. This includes agreeing on the applicable terms of child custody, visitation, child support, property division, alimony, visitation rights, and spousal support.
This type of divorce is preferred by couples that want their marriage to end without getting into a contentious and drawn-out legal fight. By choosing an uncontested divorce, your divorce lawyer can help you file all the necessary paperwork to show that there are no outstanding issues that need to be resolved by the court. This often results in a more affordable and smooth process for all parties.
