e Truths - Mediation - An Alternative
The difference between separating and divorcing seems obvious, one allows for reconciliation while the other is a final solution approved by the courts. However, more couples are viewing separation and divorce as two stages of one path, rather than two distinct options. Couples will choose to mediate a separation agreement first, and then use this agreement to file for divorce if the couple cannot resolve their issues.
The State of Georgia is quickly becoming one of the most mediation-friendly states in the U.S. Currently, there are 96 counties in Georgia that utilize some type of publicly sponsored Alternative Dispute Resolution program.
To get a Georgia divorce on one of the "fault" grounds, the spouse must prove adultery, desertion for at least a year, mental or physical cruelty, marriage between persons who are related by blood, mental incapacity, impotency, force or fraud in getting married, wife's pregnancy unknown to the husband at the time of the marriage, conviction and imprisonment, habitual intoxication or drug addiction, or mental illness.
