Uncontested divorce

What an Uncontested Divorce lawyer can do for you

An uncontested divorce attorney will tell you what is needed to legally end your marriage and provide guidance until the divorce is finalized. The advantage of an uncontested divorce is that you will be able to negotiate finances, property, and child custody without having to go to court. It is prudent to hire an uncontested divorce attorney if your spouse has secured a lawyer, if you have complicated financial issues, or if you need to make special arrangements for your children.

Why hire an uncontested divorce attorney

If you hire an attorney your part is basically over once the agreement is reached.

If you hire an uncontested divorce lawyer to do your divorce for you, once you and your spouse reach an agreement you are basically done and can turn everything else over to the lawyer to handle. Your lawyer will draft your agreement in a manner that it will be approved by the court and recommend changes and suggestions regarding things that might not be approved. You lawyer can handle getting the papers to your spouse for signing and answering any questions they might have about the paper work. Your lawyer will file the singed documents for you at the Clerk's office and will take care of any issues that might come up in the filing process. If the Judge does not require you to attend a final hearing it is the job of the lawyer to get the final decree signed, filed and a copy to both parties. If there is a hearing then the lawyer acts on your behalf and makes any changes the Judge needs until the divorce is final.

If you do not have minor children and hire an attorney you will not have to go to court.

Almost all of the Superior Courts in Georgia allow final decrees of divorce in cases where there are not minor children to be granted on a motion for a divorce on the pleadings without requiring an evidentiary hearing if the party who filed the divorce is represented by an attorney. The motion for the final can be presented to the Judge 31 days after the filing of the complaint even if you filed for online divorce. If you are not represented by an attorney, the assigned Judge will probably require that you attend a hearing so that they can review the paper work and ask you any questions that they might have. Many courts now have "pro se court" and they assign all the cases where people do not have an attorney to the same Judge and set them down all on the same day each month. These pro se days are usually held at the same time as the hearings for nonpayment of child support and they tend to be very crowded and it can take a long time for your turn before the Judge.
