Attorney Brown gave you very good advice. You should consult with a local attorney. Your attorney can assist you with filing for your divorce, advise you on property rights, child and spousal support obligations.
Rarely does someone loose everything in a divorce. The laws are fairly equitable and prevent one party from taking advantage of the other. Every divorce is different and an attorney can advise you on your best course of action. Best wishes!
This response does not create an attorney client relationship nor should the advice be relied upon because it is not specific to your legal situation. Before you depend on legal advice, you should retain competent counsel.
Georgia has a no fault provision in its divorce laws. You didn't disclose why you believe you'll lose everything simply because you want a divorce. Your first step should be to consult with several lawyers in your area to discuss your marital assets, spousal support (if applicable), and child support obligation (if you have minor children).
