Grounds for Divorce

Since family law varies from state to state, it's advisable to consult a divorce attorney to learn about family law near Cumming and how it might apply to your particular situation. Like most states, Georgia law allows spouses to file divorce papers based on fault or no fault grounds. If you file for a no fault divorce, you are simply claiming that the marriage is irretrievably broken. Your family attorney may recommend filing for a no fault divorce because the other spouse cannot object to the divorce.

As you'll learn when you watch this video, a spouse may object to a divorce if it is filed on fault-based grounds. However, the divorce will still move forward if you can prove fault on the part of your spouse. In Georgia, fault-based grounds include mental incapacity, duress or fraud, adultery, desertion, incurable mental illness, and habitual drug addiction.
