GWINNETT COUNTY DIVORCE – WHAT IS A PARENTING WORKSHOP ORDER?
This is Part 4 of the Filing for Divorce in Gwinnett County series. I provided a general overview on How to File for Divorce in Gwinnett County Superior Court in Part 1 of the series, where to file a divorce in Gwinnett County in Part 2, and the Gwinnett Mutual Restraining Order in Part 3. In the over twenty years I have been handling Gwinnett divorce and child custody cases at my Lawrenceville office I have been asked numerous questions about filing for divorce. This series is focused on addressing common questions that many have asked when considering filing for divorce in Gwinnett County. If you have any questions after reading this post please contact me at my Lawrenceville office for a free phone consultation.
