What Are Standing Domestic Relations Orders?

When you file for divorce in Georgia, the court will issue automatic domestic standing orders that will apply to you and your spouse for as long as your case is pending. These orders are designed to protect both parties from conduct such as a spouse disposing of marital assets while the divorce is in process.

At The Siemon Law Firm, our lawyers are here to protect your interests if you are going through a divorce in Georgia. Call 770-884-7067 today and schedule a consultation with one of our experienced and compassionate family law lawyers. We're conveniently located, with offices in Alpharetta, Atlanta and Cumming, GA.

  • Removing minor children from jurisdiction of the court
