A Georgia divorce case typically resolves 4 important issues:
1. Child Custody is awarded and parenting time is decided.
2. Child Support is determined using the Georgia Child Support Guidelines.
3. Property Division: All property is identified, classified, valued and the couple’s marital property is equitably divided.
4. Alimony: The final issue to be addressed may be alimony or support of a spouse.
When you have children, your relationship with your spouse does not end upon Divorce.
Divorce – court trial or mediation and negotiation.
What is the right choice for you?
A mediated/negotiated divorce is preferred. Why? – Because the financial and emotional cost to you, your spouse and your children will be much lower.
Also – you and your spouse will be deciding what the outcome of your divorce looks like, not a judge or jury.
Most couples eventually realize that a mediated and negotiated settlement is the best option – that’s why less than 10% of Atlanta divorce cases go to a trial.
Sometimes litigation is your best option. But even then mediation can play an important part in achieving a successful divorce.
