Family law cases are often fraught with emotion. Georgians who have been through divorces, child custody cases or other family legal issues want what's best for everyone involved, but often the end result is a nasty dispute. While some cases go to court, these are the exception. In reality, most family law cases are settled outside of the courtroom.
Given the choice, most Georgia residents would probably stay married forever rather than go through the trials and tribulations of a divorce. Divorce involves so many elements that it can seem overwhelming. The key to getting through even the most complicated divorce is putting everything into perspective.
Ask Georgians about the most stressful or emotional situation they have been through, and it's likely that a majority of them will mention divorce. The end of a marriage is a very painful experience. When you get married, you basically enter into a lifelong contract with your spouse. When you no longer want to be married, you break that contract, in a sense. While getting out of a marriage is possible, it's not an easy task. It requires a lot of time, money, paperwork and negotiation. In extreme cases, it may even require a lot of litigation.
