Divorce Practical Tips: Will I Have To Go To Court?

Over the years, I have worn many different "hats" as a Georgia lawyer.  I have worked as a judge's law clerk, as a state prosecutor, as a federal prosecutor, (and U.S. Attorney's office manager), and now, as a law partner in an Augusta, Georgia law firm.  In my current position, I also wear different hats, including being a divorce lawyer and a criminal defense attorney. 
Today, I want to put on my "divorce lawyer hat" and give you some more practical tips about Georgia divorces and divorce attorneys!
One common question which we are frequently asked, as Augusta, Georgia divorce attorneys, is: "Will I have to go to court?"  The simple answer is that, if it is a simple, uncontested divorce, generally, you probably will NOT be required to go to court.
As part of the documents which we will prepare for you, in your simple, uncontested divorce, we will essentially get your spouse to agree that we, as your divorce lawyers, may take your deposition by paper, which means that you probably won't have to go to court. 
Of course, you should discuss these and all your other questions with your own divorce attorney!  And now, I must put on my "other hat" and tend to some Augusta criminal defense lawyer business!  Have a great weekend!
