Grounds for Uncontested Divorce
In Georgia, both fault-based and no-fault grounds for divorce are recognized. The no-fault ground for divorce is "irretrievable breakdown of the marriage." In such a case, neither spouse has to prove the other party's misconduct.
Fault-based grounds for divorce include adultery, domestic violence, habitual intoxication or drug addiction, imprisonment for two years or longer, and incurable mental illness, among others. These grounds must be proven before the court.
