Can one lawyer represent both spouses in a Georgia divorce?

According the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct, a lawyer can represent only one of the spouses in a divorce. During the course of the divorce, if the one of the spouses remains unrepresented by a lawyer, the lawyer for the other spouse or their staff can still communicate with him or her, but under Rule 4.3 of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct, the attorney is unable to give the unrepresented spouse any legal advice. He or she can, however, give the unrepresented spouse information on procedural issues. If he or she has any questions that require legal advice, he or she will need to contact an attorney.
