Contested Divorce Solutions
A divorce is one of the most stressful events in an individual's life.
In almost all cases, a divorce involves much more than just legal proceedings
and paperwork. It involves raw emotions, concerns over finances, and worries
about your children's well-being. This is what makes divorces so difficult
and so emotionally draining for the parties involved. And these difficulties
are magnified in contested divorce proceedings. If you are embroiled in
a contested divorce, talk to our Decatur contested divorce attorney at

No-Fault Divorces vs. At-Fault Divorce
In Georgia, divorces can be no-fault or at-fault. In a no-fault divorce,
one or both spouse can file for divorce on the grounds of the relationship
being "irretrievably broken" or that the couple has "irreconcilable
differences." Even if both spouses want the divorce, there are still
many issues can they can disagree on, which can result in contested divorce
In at-fault divorces, one party is responsible for the dissolution of the
marriage. Acceptable reasons for at-fault divorces include cruel treatment,
desertion, adultery, a felony conviction that includes extended imprisonment,
drug addiction, alcohol addiction, and more. The divorce can be granted
even if one spouse does not desire one. In many at-fault divorces, the
at-fault party may contest the grounds in order to secure an advantage
in the divorce. Make sure you protect your rights with an attorney.
