Blakely, GA asked in Divorce, Family Law, Child Custody and Child Support for Georgia

Q: I am currently divorcing in GA, initially this started as a pro se uncontested case but we can’t agree on one issue.

My husband has spent the last 2 years living separately from me at a rehab facility that is faith based. He lives and breathes this place, however some situations have occurred and the lack of structure, control and a system in general to confirm the sobriety of these individuals, their criminal history (concern over sexual predators etc.) and my spouse refuses to discuss this. He wants this to be a part of our sons life because it matters to him. He has often chose to participate in activities with this place over time with our 10 month old. I feel like the mentality is very cult like and their teachings are strange. I am planning to consult with an attorney but wanted an inside into whether or not it seems that my request is reasonable. To be a Christian organization that thrives on reunification they have done nothing but separate us further. Thanks

A: I'm not sure what your actual question is. Is it will he be able to take the child to his facility outings? If so, it depends on if it is an appropriate environment for the child, and it sounds as if it is not.

A: If you can’t agree on one issue then you do not have an uncontested divorce. You have a contested divorce. As such, it would be a good idea if you consulted with an attorney on the best way to move forward with the proper course of action for the divorce.
