When is Your Divorce Final?

As Augusta, GA divorce lawyers, we have discussed before in this divorce blog the fact that you should not start "foolin' around," date, or even visit online dating sites, until your divorce is final. But do you really understand when your divorce from your worthless spouse, "Sluggo," is actually final?

The simple answer to this question is that your Georgia divorce is generally not final until after the judge has actually signed a final divorce decree. In other words, having your divorce attorney to file for a divorce is NOT the same as getting a final divorce decree, (which generally comes at the end of the divorce case). 
You might be surprised as to how many calls we receive from folks who fail to understand this important distinction!

Of course, you should discuss this matter, like all your other questions about divorce, with your own divorce lawyer! And like we have also cautioned before, please don't start dating until after you consult with your divorce attorney, and until after your divorce is final!
