Laying Out the Steps in a Georgia Divorce
by The Anderson Firm, LLC
The unexpected is what makes divorce stressful for many spouses. If you're about to file for divorce, you probably want to know how much it will cost, how long it will take, and what the process actually looks like.
Before filing for divorce in Georgia, you must have lived in the state for a minimum of six months. You may then file for divorce on the grounds that you and your spouse have "irreconcilable differences", which is no-fault divorce, or on fault-based grounds (there are around a dozen fault grounds in Georgia). Your attorney will be able to advise you on the advantages and disadvantages for no-fault and fault-based filings.
NOTE: The process outlined below applies to divorces in which spouses do not agree on the terms of the divorce settlement — this is referred to as a "contested" divorce. If you have an uncontested divorce, your process might look quite different. Your attorney will be able to go into further detail.

Songbird Mary J. Blige is pulling out the big guns in her bitter divorce battle with former manager Martin "Kendu" Isaacs. Blige, 45, filed for divorce from Isaacs, 47, in July. She cited the usual irreconcilable differences and infidelity.
But Isaacs retaliated by demanding $130,000 a month in living expenses from Blige, claiming he had no other source of income during their 9 years as husband and wife.
In newly filed documents, Blige accused Isaacs of fraudulently cheating her out of $420,000 in falsely claimed business expenses.
WENN.com -- The singer has filed new documents claiming Isaacs, who was fired as her manager shortly before she filed for divorce, “fleeced her out of” $420,000 by claiming business expenses that had nothing to do with her career, according to TMZ.com.
She has also accused Isaacs of failing to return three luxury cars that had been leased under her company’s name. A Range Rover was supposed to be returned in February, she wants a Mercedes C300 back and is allowing him to keep the Mercedes SL550.
The "Family Affair" star further alleges he is refusing to return a Grammy trophy to her as well as other “achievement awards”.

Whoever handles public relations for estranged couple T.I. and Tameka "Tiny" Harris is getting paid overtime.
As my loyal readers know, T.I., 36, and Tiny, 41, have been separated for a while now. In fact, Tameka left the rapper and moved her brood into a fabulous mansion overlooking a serene golf course.
But if you believe their PR rep, T.I. and Tiny are not separated and “plans for divorce is not on the table,” they're just playing house in a different property every night.
"They are always up and down,” a source tells Gossip Cop blog.
“They’re as much together and apart as they’ve always been.' In fact, contrary to claims, T.I. and Tiny 'don’t’ live separately.' But since the musician owns multiple properties, where they stay on any given night varies."
Right. We should ignore our lying eyes and ignore the fact that Tameka lives in one home while T.I. lives in another.
One rumor that should die is that T.I. has outside children with a groupie. That's a lie.
Kudos to T.I. and Tiny for making their children their priority and providing a stable and loving environment for them despite the separation. Have you ever seen a happier group of children?
