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.
The Georgia divorce court may give alimony, or spousal support, to either spouse. Often times, alimony is granted until the spouse dies or remarries. Alimony can also be paid in one lump sum payment of money or property, or it may be paid over an extended period of time.
