Is There a Six Month Separation Period Required Before I Can File for Divorce in Gwinnett County?

No. There is no required separation period in Gwinnett County or in any other county in Georgia before you can file for divorce.  Oftentimes, the parties are still living under the same roof when the divorce is filed. Georgia law does, however, require that you be a resident of the State of Georgia for at least six months before you file for divorce. All divorce cases in Gwinnett County are filed with the Clerk of Gwinnett County Superior Court at the courthouse located at 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville, Georgia.
