Legal Representation from first decision to final decree of a divorce
From the decision to file through the final decree, our legal team guides you through the divorce process with professional yet personable help.
The State of Georgia allows for "no-fault" divorces, meaning that a married person can file for divorce without having to prove that their spouse did anything that justifies the divorce. Often "irreconcilable differences" is cited as a reason for filing for divorce. Once the petition for divorce is filed, both parties must remain legally married during the ensuing six-month waiting period. After this waiting period is over, your divorce may move ahead.
At Hollingsworth & Hawley, our aim is to help clients divorce in a manner that maintains the dignity of all involved, including children and other family members. Since it is more likely that a divorce will be achieved smoothly and quickly when both parties work together, we encourage clients to consider family law mediation.
Both attorneys in our firm, James Hollingsworth and Albert Hawley, are skilled mediators. Should mediation not be possible, attorneys Hollingsworth and Hawley are also experienced litigators and are able to protect your rights while representing your best interests.
