CONTESTED DIVORCE—NO CHILDREN

February 5, 2023

CONTESTED DIVORCENO CHILDREN  

The forms presented in this packet are designed to guide you in the preparation of  your divorce papers. You must fill in the required information as it applies to your  situation. Your papers should remain in the same order as they appear in this packet. If  you do not have access to a typewriter, you may fill the papers out by hand in neat print  using BLACK ink.  

You should fill in every blank line EXCEPT for the civil action file number  blanks and the lines provided for signatures by the Notary Public and the Judge.  In the Complaint and the Settlement Agreement, some sections have two possible  answers, separated by an [OR]. In these sections, you must choose which of the two  choices fits best in your situation, and then include only that choice in your documents.  The other choice should be ignored, and should not be included in your documents.  Make sure that everything is signed. All signatures that require notarization must  be notarized before your documents will be approved for filing.  

Neither the Clerk of the Superior Court, nor any Deputy Clerk, nor the Judges, or  any other Court personnel, is allowed to answer any questions for you concerning the preparation of these forms. State Law O.C.G.A. §15-19-51 forbids court personnel to give legal advice. Different situations may require special procedures and courthouse personnel cannot advise you on how to proceed or what forms may be necessary in specific situations.  Divorce can be very complicated. The only person allowed to help you in the preparation of these forms is a licensed attorney hired to represent you. Please consult an attorney if you have questions about the procedure or what action is best for you to take.  

YOU MAY NEED AN ATTORNEY IF:  

The case is contested and your spouse has a lawyer.  

You cannot locate your spouse to serve him or her with your papers.  

You or your spouse has a house, pension, or large amount of property or income.  You might lose custody of your children.  

You think you will have difficulty getting documents from your spouse about  retirement funds, income, etc.  

Even if it is a friendly divorce, you should talk to a lawyer before you sign any  settlement papers or file anything in court.  

Remember, you must fully complete the forms before the Judge will be able to  grant you a decree of divorce. Incomplete forms, as well as forms that are improperly  filled out, may delay the grant of your divorce. Make sure that you take time to read over  all the forms, and understand what is being asked of you in each situation. An  accompanying instruction packet is available to help you as you complete these forms.
