For a Georgia divorce, or any other state for that matter, you can obtain a divorce and it is not necessary for the other party to agree or even appear. As long as you meet the residency requirement, you can file for a divorce.

However, I would retain a Georgia divorce attorney to assist you under these circumstances.
