Property Division Attorneys in Savannah

Family Law & Divorce Solutions: Call (912) 421-2900

For a team of experienced advocates to help you through your property and asset division, contact our property division lawyers at Johnson Kraeuter, LLC. 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. Additionally, we stand ready to aggressively protect your interests in court, should the situation necessitate such action.

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

During the divorce process, the State of Georgia applies the rule of "equitable division" of marital property when deciding on property division. While this does mean 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 considered to be 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, and is not subject to the rules of equitable division.

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.
