Georgia Divorce Waiting Periods

When filing for divorce, most states have divorce waiting periods before, during or after the divorce process to ensure there isn't a possibility of the couple reconciling.

A divorce lawyer can explain how divorce laws affect you.

Divorce laws in Georgia don't require a divorce waiting period before filing divorce. After the divorce petition is entered in court, there is at least a 30 day waiting period for marriages filed on the grounds of the marriage being irretrievably broken. If the couple has children then the waiting period is extended to 120 days.

Once the marriage is final, there isn't a remarriage period for either spouse.

If you are filing for divorce, get in touch with a divorce attorney near you to get advice on how to handle the divorce process. A divorce attorney can make sure you are aware of divorce waiting periods and other divorce requirements that will affect the length and cost of your divorce.
