Status Hearings Speed Up Your Divorce
In our experience, divorces can be finalized faster in Fulton County than in other counties. One reason they proceed more quickly is that Fulton County requires monthly status hearings in every divorce case. These status hearings keep the divorce moving forward before and after the main divorce hearing. The parties have a chance to discuss the status of the proceedings and communicate about the next steps.
We are committed to helping you get the most out of your status hearings. Our Fulton County divorce lawyers arrive at the hearing ready to fight for your best interests at every turn.
Fulton County divorces may move faster due to the courts requiring each couple to attend mediation before their final divorce hearing. Our divorce attorneys are skilled at mediation in Fulton County and negotiation. We will advocate on your behalf and make sure that your rights are protected. If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement in mediation, we are prepared to go to court for you.
