We are frequently asked what the difference is between a Georgia uncontested divorce and a Georgia contested divorce. In an uncontested divorce the parties are usually in agreement to divorce based on irreconcilable differences. In addition, the parties have reached a complete agreement on how their property will be divided, what the terms will be for child custody, child visitation and child support. Also, the parties will be in full agreement regarding how much, if any spousal support / alimony will be paid and for how long.

Although the parties may be in agreement regarding their children, assets and spousal support – putting this agreement into a legal document the court will accept without the help of a divorce lawyer can be difficult. The divorce attorneys at Coleman Legal Group, LLC are experienced and able to take your agreed terms and prepare a complete collection of documents the court will accept and approve. If your divorce involves significant assets – we can help you prepare for potential tax implications associated with your divorce. We often work with tax experts and financial planners to help in drafting the final divorce documents that are in your best interest.

The divorce attorneys at Coleman Legal Group, LLC also help with more simple divorces by helping guide you through the process, saving you time and aggravation, and by helping move your divorce case through the courts as quickly as possible. In many cases, depending on the Judge assigned to you case and the County in which your case is filed, you may not have to go to court to get your final decree of divorce. We will work with you to prepare and execute the necessary documents to avoid the final court hearing when possible. If your case is more complicated, but you feel that you may be able to resolve your differences with the help of a mediator and an attorney at your side, we can help schedule and arrange for a formal mediation which could lead to a quickly resolved uncontested divorce.
