E-filing Divorce Cases in Georgia

Georgia E-Filing Counties Map

Starting January 1, 2019, mandatory e-filing went into effect in Georgia. The new law requires attorneys to e-file the documents they file for their clients. However, e-filing is not mandatory for people who don't have attorneys, also called pro se. This means that couples filing for divorce without an attorney have the option to e-file or file documents in person or by mail with the Court Clerk's office. With e-filing, you can file legal documents with your phone or computer without having to go to the courthouse. E-filing also gives you 24/7 access to your case file.

Choosing the Right Georgia E-Filing Provider

There are two e-filing service providers used in Georgia--Odyssey E-File GA and Peach Court.

In Forsyth, Muscogee and Spaulding Superior Courts filers may use either Peach Court or Odyssey e-File.

Filers in the following superior courts can only use Odyssey e-File: Bibb, Chatham, Cherokee, Clayton, Decatur, Dekalb, Douglas, Fulton, Glynn, Gwinette, Lowndes, and Rockdale.

Floyd County Superior Court is not currently supported by either Peach Court or Odyssey e-File.

Help with E-Filing

Any technical issues with e-filing using a computer can be directed to your e-filing service provider's technical support. Additional information may also be available at the Court Clerk's office.

If you encounter issues e-filing that cannot be resolved, since e-filing isn't mandatory when you don't have an attorney, you can take your completed, signed paperwork to the Court Clerk's office and e-file by scanning it into the Public Access Terminal, or PAT, available there.
