Uncontested or Contested
There are two types of divorces in Georiga – uncontested and contested. An uncontested divorce requires that the parties come to an agreement on all issues pending in the case, including, without limitation, division or real and personal property, division of debt, custody, child support, visitation, alimony and attorney’s fees. If you and your spouse have an agreement before hiring an attorney, you can legally employ one attorney to handle the matter and the cost is typically much less than a contested divorce. A contested divorce is a case where the parties cannot agree on one or more issues pending before the Court. If you do not have an agreement when you hire an attorney, your case will most likely be considered a contested divorce and you will proceed with the discovery process, mediation or directly to trial to resolve the issues that cannot be agreed to.
