Georgia Residency and Filing Requirements

Georgia has certain residency requirements for filing a divorce action. If the residency requirements are not met, the court will not have jurisdiction to hear the case. The court will either not accept the case or will dismiss the case.

To file for divorce in Georgia, one party must be a resident of the state for at least six months prior to filing.
