In Georgia, there are thirteen grounds for divorce, twelve of which are fault grounds and one of which is filed under grounds that the marriage is irretrievably broken, also known as a no-fault ground. To file under a no-fault ground, one party must establish that there is no hope of reconciliation and that he/she refuses to continue living with the other spouse.

If a divorce is filed under any of the fault grounds, one of the parties must prove that there was wrong doing to the marriage. Adultery and desertion are two common fault grounds. Others include abuse (mental/physical), incest, impotency at time of marriage, force or fraud in obtaining the marriage, pregnancy of the wife at the time of marriage that was unknown by the husband, mental illness, habitual intoxication/drug abuse, and conviction/imprisonment for certain crimes.

Gwinnett County Georgia divorce cases are usually filed in Gwinnett County Superior Court or the county of the defendant. In order to obtain a divorce in Georgia, one spouse must have lived in the state for at least six months.

Divorce in Georgia can take as little as 31 days or much longer than that, depending on the nature of the case. If the case is uncontested, and both parties agree on all of the details of the divorce, the paperwork can be filed and approved and the divorce granted in 31 days. In the event of disagreement upon any of the terms of the divorce, the case will need to go to court, and this can take many months.
