Uncontested Divorce

An Uncontested Divorce is a simple an easy way of divorcing when both parties are completely in agreement. There is no need for a court hearing and you can bypass expensive and lengthy divorce litigation by settling your case out of court. Settling your case involves both parties signing a Settlement Agreement and a parenting plan if children are involved. We prepare and explain all of the documents to you.  You avoid having a hearing in front of a judge and you don’t have to worry about the local sheriff coming to your home to serve you or your spouse. Contact us to schedule a consultation with an Attorney who can assist you with your uncontested divorce.

Contested Divorce

If both parties are not in agreement, then the divorce will be contested. At the Law Office of Miracle C. Jackson, LLC, we can help you sort out the important issues associated with your divorce. How long your divorce will take depends on how long it takes to finalize all of the elements of the divorce. We can guide you through all aspects of the divorce process, including:

  • Child custody: In Georgia, we have two types of custody: physical and legal. Legal custody refers to the legal authority to make major decisions on behalf of the minor children. Physical custody refers to where the children physically reside. Parents can share legal and physical custody; however, the issue of custody is typically decided dependent on the facts of each case.
  • Visitation: In Georgia, the non-custodial parent is most often entitled to visitation of the children.
  • Child support: Pursuant to Georgia's child support guidelines, both parents’ income along with several other factors such as health insurance and child care are taken into consideration to generate to figure for both parents.
  • Property division: In Georgia, property and debt acquired during the marriage is divided by equitable distribution.
  • Alimony: Spousal support can be granted in Georgia on a case by case basis.

Settlement or Trial

The majority of divorces do eventually get worked out between the two spouses. Settlement gives the parties more control over the outcome of their case. If necessary, we may use mediation as a way to settle your case without having to go to trial. At the law Office of Miracle C. Jackson, LLC, we will always look for opportunities to close your case as efficiently as possible and never drag things out just to increase our fees.

Unfortunately, not every divorce can be resolved amicably, and it is often necessary to go to trial on various issues. If your case must go to trial, we will fight hard to ensure that you are fairly represented and that you achieve the best possible outcome. We are experienced trial attorneys who are trained to zealously represent our clients.
