Jurisdiction for Cumming Georgia Divorce Cases

Jurisdiction refers to the court’s authority to hear a case, as determined by its legal boundaries. A court with jurisdiction to hear a divorce has the right to grant the divorce itself and to decide on orders connected to the divorce, such as child support, custody, and property division.  The courts that have jurisdiction to hear a divorce case for someone residing in Cumming Georgia are the Georgia Superior Courts.  For example, Georgia has forty-nine Superior Court Circuits in Georgia, and each circuit is made up of one or more counties.  Most largely populated counties have their own Superior Court.  But the more rural counties with less population density usually share a Superior Court circuit.  It is not uncommon for three or four counties to share one Superior Court Circuit.

However, a divorce case should be filed in a county that can be said to have proper venue.  Venue should be proper and convenient to at least one of the parties.  Usually, venue needs to be most convenient to the defendant in the case, unless he or she consents to, or waives objections to the venue.

Venue for Cumming Georgia Divorce Cases

Venue refers to the proper geographical area in which a spouse can file.  Usually, Georgia law requires that you file your divorce complaint in your spouse’s county of residence.  If your spouse has moved away from Georgia, you may file at the Superior Court in your county.  If you do not file in the proper place, you run the risk of your case being dismissed, thus it is important to know where you should be filing and note that your case could be specific – you should always double check with your court and your attorney that you are filing in the right place.  Generally, if you are filing for an uncontested divorce with your spouse, the complaint can be filed in either party’s county, provided both parties have given consent that this is agreeable.  Once your case is open, court hearings will usually be held in the Superior Court in which you filed your complaint.
