Frequently Asked Marietta, GA Questions

How long do I have to live in Marietta before I can file for divorce?

You must be a resident of Georgia for 6 months prior to filing any action for divorce. All actions for divorce shall be filed in the county of the defendant’s residence if he/she is a resident of Georgia.

An action for divorce may be filed in the city of plaintiff’s residence if (1) defendant has moved from the county of plaintiff’s residence within 6 months of filing the petition for divorce and (2) said county was the marital domicile of the parties, meaning, husband and wife resided together in that county.

In essence, the critical factor is that you have been a resident of Georgia for 6 months.

Is there a mandatory waiting period in Marietta before a divorce can be granted? How long will a divorce take?

There is no mandatory waiting period. Family law litigation can be unpredictable so it is impossible to know how long the divorce process will take.

However, if the parties are in agreement about the terms of the divorce, i.e. child custody, visitation, and property division, and said agreement is memorialized in a settlement agreement, the divorce may be granted in as little as 31 days after the defendant has been served.

In the event the parties cannot agree, the divorce process can take substantially longer.

How can I serve my spouse in Marietta? If attempts to serve do not work, can I serve by publication? If so, which local publications should I contact?

The defendant may be served by a Cobb County court-approved private process server or the Cobb County Sheriff’s Department. In the event you are unable to serve your spouse via a process server or the sheriff, you must request permission from the court to have your spouse served via publication.

This is accomplished by filing a Motion for Service via publication. Said motion must state what efforts you have made to have your spouse served and why you need to have him/her served via publication.

Once the court grants your motion, you must contact the Marietta Daily Journal and pay the applicable fee to have the notice of divorce published. The notice will run for four consecutive weeks.

What are the specific forms I will need to file for a divorce in Marietta?

You will need to file a summons, complaint for divorce, verification of complaint signed by plaintiff, and case initiation form.

However, prior to finalizing the divorce, the following documents must be filed: Financial Affidavit of each party, and if there are children, child support worksheets, parenting plan, and certificate of completion of the Divorcing Parents Seminar of both parties.

Where do I file for divorce in Marietta?

You must file for divorce in the Clerk’s Office of the Cobb County Superior Court located at 70 Haynes Street, Marietta, GA, 30090.
