Requirements for a Cumming Georgia Divorce

1) 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 months. For example if one party moves out of state while the other has remained or resided for a period of longer than six 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.

2) Waiting Period
The length of the waiting period for divorce is dependent upon the grounds for the divorce or the fault in question. The minimum waiting period in Georgia is 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” divorce may for example have a relatively shorter waiting period, 31 days+, whereas a divorce resulting from conviction may require a waiting period of longer than 2 years.
