Asked in Divorce for Georgia

Q: I need legal assistance regarding a divorce case in the State of Georgia in Gwinnett County, possibly a mediator.

I have filed for divorce in South Carolina. My spouse filed for divorce in Georgia in Gwinnett County. It is rumored that his lawyer and my lawyer are negotiating settlements. Now in the 11th hour, my lawyer in South Carolina is telling me he cannot tell me the terms of the settlement because he is not licensed to practice in Georgia. I've also learned the said terms of the settlement are set to expire next Monday. What would be my best option to find out the information regarding the settlement when I do not yet have an attorney in Georgia to handle this?

A: Sounds like you need to release your SC lawyer and get a Georgia lawyer. If you don’t have a lawyer, you could talk to opposing counsel yourself and learn the settlement offer.
