Lawrenceville Divorce Attorney – Douglas W. Lewis, Attorney at Law

LAWRENCEVILLE DIVORCE CASES SUCCESSFULLY HANDLED FOR OVER 20 YEARS 

I have been successfully representing clients in divorce and child custody cases at my Lawrenceville office for over twenty years.  In addition to divorce and child custody, I handle a number of different type of family law cases.  If you live in Lawrenceville and you want to file for divorce the law in Georgia is specific as to where you must file your divorce case. In most cases you must file your divorce case in the county where your spouse resides.

Where to file your divorce case if you reside in Lawrenceville

Below are some examples of where a Lawrenceville resident would have to file his/her divorce case.

If you reside in Lawrenceville and your spouse resides in Snellville, then you must file your divorce papers in Gwinnett County Superior Court.

If you reside in Lawrenceville, but your spouse lives in Winder, Barrow County, then you must file your divorce case in Barrow County Superior Court.

If you reside in Lawrenceville, but your spouse lives out of state, then you may or may not be able to file in Gwinnett County depending on whether venue and jurisdiction are proper.
