Frequently Asked Questions
What counties do you service?
Our forms can be used for any county in the State of Georgia. Each County has its own local rules – ways they handle mediation, judge assignments, final hearings, classes, etc. We have the local forms for Chatham, Effingham, Bryan & Liberty counties. We are adding additional county local rules forms as quickly as possible. If your county is not listed here, you can use our forms but must check with your county clerk to see what additional forms are needed pursuant to its local rules.
Required Parenting Classes
Parents of minor children must take a 4-hour parenting class. The Mediation is now offering virtual classes.
