Can You File for Divorce Yourself in Georgia?

Cheapest Divorce

Yes, you can file for divorce yourself in Georgia. The least expensive way to get a divorce in Georgia is through an uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce means both parties agree on how to resolve all issues of the divorce (alimony, child support, child custody, and division of property).

If the parties can agree on how to resolve the issues, all that is necessary to resolve the marriage is to draft the parties' agreement and submit the documents to the court for a judge to sign. Therefore, an uncontested divorce is the most affordable way to divorce, with or without an attorney. However, divorce gets expensive when the parties have disagreements and require the assistance of attorneys and other professionals to resolve a marriage.

Attorneys traditionally bill by the hour for the time they spend working on a case. The more time attorneys and their staff spend on the case, the more expensive it becomes.
