Generally, in Georgia, there are two ways to get a divorce: contested and uncontested. As to uncontested, if he will sign all the documents and agree to all your terms, then that would be a matter to discuss with your own divorce lawyer, along with your other rights and options. Good luck.

You can either file suit and have him served at the prison, or an acknowledgement of service could be mailed out to him to sign and return to you. An attorney can easily help you with this matter.

    It's really the same procedure as any divorce, except you serve him in prison. You should retain an attorney to handle the procedure rather than trying to handle it yourself.
