A: You can file for a divorce in Georgia. If you and your wife have reached an agreement on all the issues -- how to divide up the assets, debts, personal property, and the house -- then you both can sign a detailed settlement agreement that memorializes the terms of the agreement and file it with your divorce petition and other divorce documents. If all the documents are filed correctly, a Judge can grant your divorce as soon as 31 days after you have filed.
