How to File an Answer to a Divorce Complaint

Authored By: Georgia Legal Services Program® LSC Funded

This brochure offers general information about how to properly answer a divorce petition. By filing your own answer, you will ensure that you will receive notice of the final hearing and that you will be able to tell the Court your position whether you decide to hire an attorney or represent yourself. Please be cautioned that the clerk's office of the Superior Court must accept your answer, but the Judge has the authority to require that you hire an attorney.
