Q: How do I file for an uncontested divorce in Screven county georgia?
We are both seniors, there are no children and there are no assets, we just want a none contested straight divorce. Where do I file, Screven county probate?
A: To file an uncontested divorce you will need to file a summons, petition for divorce, acknowledgment of service, consent to trial in 31 days and a marital settlement agreement. If there are children involved, you will also need to file a parenting plan, child support worksheet and child support addendum. An uncontested divorce requires that the parties have reached an agreement on all areas of the divorce, including division of assets/debts, support and custody.

A: You will need to file everything in the office of the Clerk of Superior Court for your county.
A: Understanding that you have no minor children, you will not need a parenting plan, child support worksheet, or child support addendum. If your county does not have forms online for an uncontested divorce, you can either go to the superior court in your county (because you file in superior court, not probate court) and see if they have a family law information center or if they have forms in the clerk's office you can use, or see if they have a list of local attorneys who can assist you, because sometimes they have a list of attorneys who handle family court cases. But both parties must sign all of the necessary documents in order for you to file as uncontested.
