In an uncontested divorce, the couple has already agreed on child support, custody arrangements and how to split assets, so they can avoid going through long court proceedings. Filing an uncontested divorce in Cherokee County, Georgia, requires the services of an attorney.

Step 1

Hire a divorce attorney. Ask for referrals from friends or relatives, or simply find one in the phone book.

Step 2

Consult with the attorney to ensure your divorce will proceed uncontested. The attorney will advise you on what decisions you and your spouse will have to make before filing to proceed in the most peaceful manner

Step 3

Have the attorney draw up the divorce papers and submit them to the Cherokee County courts. The court system in Cherokee County does not provide divorce papers for citizens, so you have to get them from your lawyer or have your lawyer draw them up for you.

Step 4

Wait for the court to process your divorce paperwork and serve your spouse his copy. The divorce papers will be a matter of public record so you can go to the court and look them up any time during business hours.
