Once a judgment is reached in a divorce or other domestic matter, it is sometimes difficult to get the judgment set aside (or for the court not to let the Final Order stand). Having a judgment set aside and/or attacked depends on a number of issues including why the court is being asked to set aside the judgment and the applicable time frame from the judgment being entered to it being attacked. Depending on the reason for attacking a judgment, such attack may be more time sensitive than for other reasons per the Official Code of Georgia.
If a motion is set aside, the judgment is therefrom inoperative and ineffective. However, a judgment will not be set aside without a sound legal basis. The Georgia Code is strict on how and why a judgment can be attacked. If you need to attack a judgment you should speak with an experienced attorney about your matter. Attorney Tiffany Lunn of Lunn Law LLC recently appeared in Fayette County Superior Court to assist in attacking a Motion to Set Aside. Lunn Law LLC has offices in both Jonesboro and Fayetteville, GA and represent clients in Metro-Atlanta regarding divorce, custody and other domestic conflicts.
