Under Atlanta laws, there are two types of grounds for divorce. The first of those is called fault divorce. Fault divorce refers to one of the spouses is at fault in the relationship, in some way. There are 13 different reasons which will qualify the termination of a marriage. You will know if your divorce has these grounds if it is relevant to any of the following reasons:
- The marriage is broken beyond the point of repair
- Marriage within prohibited kinship
- Mental incapacity
- Obtaining the marriage is done through force or fraud
- Pregnancy by a man unknown to the husband
- One spouse commits a crime of moral turpitude, resulting in a prison sentence equal to or greater than two years
- Habitual intoxication
- Cruel treatment
- Incurable mental illness
- Habitual drug addiction

Instead, the grounds are simply referred to as the irreparable breakdown of the relationship. This particular route is typically more amicable and can also allow us to place more focus on the future progress and needs of your family. With our guidance, we will help produce the most smoothly navigated no-fault divorce route.
When we are first approached about any case, one of the most important pieces of information that you can give us is the status of whether the case is contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce does not mean that only one spouse wants the divorce, but instead refers to whether or not agreements have already been reached. An uncontested divorce would mean that both spouses share no disagreements, in the way of the sharing of finances, division of property, and all other agreements that must be sought to complete the process. This type of divorce allows for the most straightforward finalizing of terms.
On the contrary, a contested divorce refers to either a disagreement in the way of these terms or that one of the spouses in question is directly challenging the process. This will undoubtedly add more complexity to a case that would have had its own, prior complications. When you are faced with the prospect of a contested divorce, it is essential that you are led with the proper guidance. We can promise our experience and diligence in achieving the most favorable outcome for clients, in these situations. Using our provenly successful approach, we will assist our clients in reaching and agreeing on terms, striving to avoid the necessity of going to court.
