Georgia is one of the United States’ leading divorce states. Couples in Georgia is steadily divorcing. The Georgia House of Representatives is seeking to make obtaining a divorce in Georgia a bit lengthier, in an attempt to discourage divorce. Georgia legislatures seem to be following other states around the nation, such as North Carolina, in making a legislative attempt to discourage divorce. For example, North Carolina has a one year waiting period for divorcing couples that may be extended to two years in the coming years. The proposed new law in Georgia would be a big change from how Georgia divorces are granted today and from years passed. Attorney Tiffany R. Lunn suggests that you read more about the proposed changes in the article: Is the Way We Divorce In America About To Change? Citizens should be encouraged to weigh in with their state representatives with their views on the issue.
