Jury Trials in Divorce Cases

By Lance Owen | Posted in Family Law | No comments yet

Georgia and Texas are the only states that still allow jury trials in divorce cases.  Georgia law allows either party to request a jury trial to determine child support, alimony and how marital property and debts will be divided between the parties.  The judge will still determine child custody and visitation when a jury trial has been requested.  Most cases that aren’t settled are heard and ruled upon by a judge through what is called a bench trial.
