Handling divorce court in Georgia

While avoiding litigation may be the goal in some Georgia divorce cases, it is not always avoidable. Couples may have issues that simply cannot be resolved through alternate dispute resolution methods. Those who do go to court may want to take some time to prepare themselves for what to expect and how to get the best result in any potential decision.

An individual going to court for a divorce is advised to get an attorney. Doing so makes it easier to navigate the nuances and many rules that a jurisdiction may impose on those going through the litigation process. Furthermore, while in court, people are strongly advised to remain calm at all times however emotional the process may be.

However, people may want to be as involved as possible during the discovery process. This is when both sides may give depositions, have property appraised and exchange any other information that is relevant to the case at hand. They are encouraged to provide complete records to their attorneys and should look for missing documents that indicate hidden assets. The court may order these or other documents to be turned over if they are not provided voluntarily.

The end of a marriage may be an especially emotional time for all involved. This is why estranged spouses may wish to turn to their respective family law attorneys for help. Attorneys can review prenuptial agreements to determine if they are legally binding. Ultimately, legal counsel may be best equipped to resolve issues such as spousal support or child custody in a manner consistent with state law.
