The spouse who files for an uncontested divorce in Georgia, must have been a resident for 6 months and file
for divorce in the county of residence. However, a non-resident may file for divorce against a
spouse who has been a resident of Georgia for 6 months. In such cases, the divorce must be
filed for in the county in which the respondent resides. [Code of Georgia Annotated; Title
30, Section 107].
The only no-fault ground for divorce by the State of Georgia is: Irretrievable breakdown of
the marriage. [Code of Georgia Annotated; Title 30, Section 102].
