Requirements / Qualifications for Divorce in Georgia

Residency Requirement

In order to qualify for divorce in any county within the state of Georgia, one of the spouses must have established residency within the state for a minimum of six (6) months. For example if one party moves out of state while the other has remained or resided for a period of longer than six (6) months than the party filing from out of state may still file for divorce. Residency requirements are not particular to the same address and are only necessary to remain within the state of Georgia. Residency can be established through driver’s license, employer, car registration, or banking accounts and your proof of residency within the court is typically established through testimony. Note that some cases have been dismissed or overturned due to improper proof of residency or falsified testimony of residency.

Waiting Period

The length of the waiting period for divorce is dependent upon the grounds for the divorce and whether the divorce is contested or uncontested. The minimum waiting period in Georgia is thirty-one (31) days from the initial filing date. However, the time required for a particular case is dependent upon the cases complexity and the reasons for filing the divorce. A “No Fault” uncontested Georgia divorce may have a relatively short waiting period of thirty-one (31) days.  Whereas a Georgia contested divorce may take several months or more to be finalized. Also, the county in Georgia a case is filed will be a factor in how long a divorce case takes to be completed. Some courts set strict deadlines internally and upon the parties to force a case to be completed quicker, and some counties do not set strict deadlines.
