Georgia Divorce Laws | Grounds for Divorce


A petition for Divorce must declare the appropriate grounds judged upon by the state of Georgia to be valid and legal grounds in which a divorce may be filed under. The appropriate lawful ground will be that which the parties agree to, or that which the filing spouse desires to prove to the court. When filing for a no-fault divorce under Georgia divorce law there is a mandatory 30 day waiting period from when the respondent is served with divorce papers. For a divorce to qualify as a “fault” divorce they must fall under these grounds: Incest, mental capacity at the time of marriage, impotency at the time of marriage, force or fraud in obtaining a marriage, pregnancy of wife at the time of marriage by another man, willful and continued desertion, habitual intoxication, and cruel treatment.
