Cobb County Uncontested Divorce
A Cobb County Uncontested Divorce (sometimes called "No-Contest Divorce" or "No-Fault Divorce") is the fastest, cheapest and least stressful way to divorce. Few divorce cases, including uncontested divorces, are completely free from disagreement. However, in an uncontested divorce, the disagreements are informally worked out by the parties prior to filing the actual divorce case with the Court. This simplifies the divorce proceedings, saves time and lowers your costs. An uncontested divorce also helps keep much of your personal information out of the proceedings and out of the public record.
Whether you have a simple divorce or a complicated divorce, the uncontested divorce process can work for you. But, the two of you must agree to work out the details of a settlement agreement.
We strive to make every uncontested Cobb County divorce affordable and dignified.

Is a Marietta Uncontested Divorce Right for me?
For a divorce to be uncontested, you and your spouse must agree on all applicable issues before the actual divorce filing. Basically, this means that both of you sign a Marital Settlement Agreement that we prepare for you. But, first we thoroughly discuss all aspects of your divorce case with you. We also provide advice to you on the issues in your case as necessary. These issues include:
- Marital assets and property division (also called equitable division or property)
- Debt allocation
- Child custody and visitation (including a detailed Parenting Plan)
- Spousal support/Alimony (when appropriate) and child support
If you and your spouse can agree on these issues, you have an excellent chance of completing your uncontested divorce without any intervention by a judge.
Even if you and your spouse have a few outstanding minor disagreements or uncertainties, an uncontested divorce will likely work for you. We prepare all documents specifically for your particular divorce. Both parties will be required to sign a Settlement Agreement that we custom-prepare for you that formally documents your agreement with your spouse on all of the issues in your Cobb County uncontested divorce.
We have found that about 90% of our clients seeking an uncontested Cobb County divorce can, and ultimately do, terminate their marriage efficiently, inexpensively, and without the public intervention of a judge. Of course, part of retaining our services to handle your uncontested Cobb County divorce means that we handle the preparation of all required legal paperwork for you and presentation of all that paperwork to the court.
When minor children are involved, we also handle the complicated calculation of the child support obligations set forth by the Georgia laws in the form of the Child Support Worksheet and create a detailed Parenting Plan for your case.
Contested or Uncontested: You Decide
We strongly urge that every person/couple having marital difficulties seek the advice of a marriage counseling professional. But, if it is clear that divorce is inevitable, we also recommend that every couple then use all means possible to work out mutually acceptable terms on all issues. This can be done independently, or through or mediation (or even arbitration). This will save time, money, and stress, and free you from a lengthy and expensive court battle.
Once basic decisions are made and the Settlement Agreement has been signed by you and your spouse, we can file for the divorce and your case can be done in as little as about five weeks after the filing.
In our uncontested divorce process, no sheriff will come to serve papers on your spouse and all documents are completed in privacy and with dignity. If your case involves minor children you MUST attend the mandatory seminar for divorcing parents (please click the "Resources" link above to find a link to more information on the seminar.)
Cost of an Uncontested Marietta Georgia Divorce
We provide fast, efficient and professional uncontested Marietta Georgia divorce services for a low, flat fee. Our typical fees start at:
$595 for a Cobb County uncontested divorce with no minor children; or
$1,225 for an uncontested Cobb County divorce with minor children. You not find a better value for obtaining a divorce in Marietta.
Our fees do not include the filing fee or other court costs. Court costs are usually around $275.
Because we begin to prepare all documents for your case as soon as possible, our low, flat fee must be paid in full to start your case. Court costs are not paid until all documents have been signed and we are ready to actually e-file your divorce case. Once you have paid the court costs to us, we pay all fees and costs to the Clerk of Superior Court in Marietta on your behalf.
Our services include analyzing your situation and providing appropriate legal advice, custom-preparation of all necessary documents, filing the case with the Clerk and processing the divorce case through the Superior Court to completion. The Court is located in Marietta, Georgia.
We do NOT negotiate with your spouse or opposing counsel. But we provide legal advice to our client only on any issue in the case and suggest possible solutions to problems based on sound knowledge of the Law and experience gained from processing thousands of divorce cases in Georgia.
Under Georgia Law, we can only represent one party and, typically, that is the Plaintiff (the person officially asking the Court for the divorce).
We do not require that you even meet with us in person. Instead we find that teleconferencing with our client only is a very efficient alternative to driving in Atlanta traffic.
For an additional, reasonable fee, our services can include preparation of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders ("QDRO") for the transfer or division of some retirement assets and/or preparation of any documents necessary for the transfer of real estate. We can quote a reasonable fee for these additional services.
