Attorney Fees - Georgia Uncontested Divorce Online

In order to file for divorce without a lawyer in the state of Georgia your divorce must be uncontested. This means that you and your spouse must both agree to the divorce and should agree to the custody of your children if you have any.

The first thing you should do is find the appropriate forms that you will need to file with your local court. There are various programs online that will help you to do this. The I-Can website has these forms available free of charge.

Next choose which forms you will need. Normally these forms are in packets based on whether or not there are children from the marriage or if you have a large amount of marital property.

Fill out your forms either using your own program such as Microsoft word or using a website that fills them in for you. Again the I-CAN website has the feature of filling in your forms for you online based on what information you type in.

If you are female you can decide if you wish to have the court restore your your maiden name. Also if there are children from your marriage you will need to fill out information involving custody and explain how custody will be shared.This includes how much child support will be paid and how all holidays will be arranged so that each parent gets proper time with the children. If you and your spouse disagree on child custody, you will need a lawyer to help resolve these issues.

Once you have filled out all the required forms, you now need to print and sign them and take them to be notarized. Most banks have a notary of the public available or you can call your local Superior Court office and ask where you can find one.

Next take your petition for divorce to your local Clerk of Court office for your county. You must pay the appropriate filing fees which at this time are about $80.00 for the state of Georgia.

If your divorce is uncontested your divorce should take place within 30 to 45 days. If there are children involved you will likely have to attend a parenting course before the Judge will grant your divorce. These courses usually consist of a parenting video and last one day.

Legal Question----any Texas lawyers online??

This is a case in Texas--Jefferson County. My x took me back for a modification of original divorce decree and I agreed and we settled outside of courtroom. Short time later she took me back saying she didn't understand what she was signing?? Anyways the judge let the modification stay as it was and would not change it. Now she is taking me back again to change it. Someone told me you have to wait at least 3 years before you can file a motion to modify after one has already taken place. Can someone clarify? Thanks

Better for what?

Where have you lived during your 11 year marriage? Marital property rights will depend largely on that. Iowa is not a community property state, Texas is. As far as child support, you could probably find each state's child support schedules online, which should tell you what the "norm" is for each of those states; same comment regarding alimony.
I doubt you'll find a boat load of lawyers that know both Iowa and Texas divorce law that can give you very specific answers.
I know of no enforcible "stay away" provision regarding the will.
