Once a judgment is reached in a divorce or other domestic matter, litigants find themselves in a huge hole trying 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 judgment 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.
