Helping Clients Find Asset Division Solutions
Georgia is an equitable division state, which means that marital assets must be split equitably between the two spouses. This equitable division does not always mean a 50/50 split of assets and marital debts and other financial obligations are also split between the separation couple. Additionally, only marital property will be divided in a divorce. Generally, marital property includes assets that were obtained during the marriage of the marriage, excluding assets that were precluded by a prenuptial agreement or as part of an inheritance.
Our lawyers work closely with divorcing clients to understand their unique financial situation and goals for the divorce. We will thoroughly account for every marital asset, including investment and retirement accounts so that we can get your full share of assets. Our team will aggressively negotiate on your behalf and represent your interests in family court.
