WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DIVORCE - JURISDICTION, GROUNDS
Currently am involved in an upcoming divorce proceeding where the wife may claim adultery. I have reviewed your other messages and see that some sort of proof is required. What is/could be considered proof? I live in the state of Georgia. She has also contacted the husband of the person that I supposedly had this affair with and I am trying to control the damage to many innocent people. I have scheduled a meeting with counsel but this is getting out-of-hand rapidly and any basic information would be appreciated. Thank YouAnswer:
I am not familiar with the evidentiary requirements under Georgian matrimonial law and whether grounds are necessary to receive a divorce in Georgia. In New York, grounds are necessary and the statute delineates 6 specific grounds for divorce. Adultery is one of the grounds.Back to content
Generally, the courts listen to the testimony of the opposing sides and determine the truthfulness of the testimony being given; they do not require eyewitness testimony in adultery cases.
