We strive to deliver fair and practical solutions while upholding your interests. Our team has extensive experience helping clients with high assets and significant wealth at stake in a divorce.

Typically, the most cost-effective and amicable way to divide property is through negotiation and a finalized written agreement with your spouse. Our divorce attorneys can assist with this process.

Our team can explain critical issues when dividing property, including:

  • What assets and debts were accumulated during the course of your marriage
  • Distinguishing between "marital" and "separate" property
  • How businesses and professional practices may be separated
  • What will happen to your retirement accounts, pensions, stocks, investments, and other accounts
  • How your home and vacation property may be split
  • Whether you can benefit from litigating a dispute in court
  • Ways to locate any hidden assets or offshore accounts

Georgia Law & Equitable Distribution

Georgia applies the rule of "equitable division" of marital property for property division. While this means that all property acquired during the marriage needs to be divided in a fair manner, it does not necessarily have to be divided equally.

  • "Marital" property is both assets and debts that have been acquired during the length of the marriage.
  • "Separate" property can include gifts, inheritances, property excluded by a prenuptial agreement.

If you are unable to reach an agreement with your spouse on property division, a judge may take into account various factors regarding your marriage and life circumstances in order to reach a decision. As you enter complex family law matters, be sure to work with an experienced professional who can help you seek an agreeable outcome.
