He lost his job and has not been acting right. We do not get along and I want a divorce. I have found little baggies with powdery residue in them on the floor and he denies any part of them being his. What can be done in the divorce proceedings to prove they are his if they can be proven to be his. Can I use his drug use, if true, as ground for divorce.
You should repost under divorce or family law as this is not a criminal answer you are seeking.
You can file for divorce. Drug use is not a statutory reason to get a divorce. However, your husband's conduct, including his drug use, can be used as a factor in determining alimony, custody, and division of property. You should take pictures of anything that you see regarding his drug use and keep it as evidence to use later in your case. Most importantly, contact a lawyer, and the lawyer can guide you through the process. Good luck!
You need to hire a local divorce attorney, and file suit against your husband for divorce. Georgia has been a no-fault divorce state for over fifty years. You do not need to allege a fault ground to obtain a divorce from your husband. You can ask the judge for a drug test on your husband if child custody is an issue in your divorce. Go consult a Houston County attorney ASAP concerning your divorce issues.
Yes. Habitual intoxication and drug addition are two grounds for divorce. If necessary, you can name grounds. You should consult with an attorney to discuss if it would be best for your to name grounds or to say that you want a divorce due to irreconcilable differences. That is a strategic decision that should be made by an attorney.
