Georgia Property Division Lawyers
Our Atlanta Divorce Firm Helps Protect Your Assets
Property division is often one of the most contentious parts of a
divorce, but at
The Manely Firm, P.C., we believe in taking a commonsense approach to these disputes. We guide
and counsel our clients through the divorce process, protecting their
interests by helping them make smart decisions about property division.
Our Atlanta divorce attorney uses years of experience to achieve this,
even in the most complex situations. We handle division of a wide range
of marital property, including the marital home, vacation properties,
family-owned businesses, pensions and investments.
It is not always easy to predict exactly how a judge will divide marital
property, but our Georgia divorce lawyers' in-depth knowledge of the
local courts as well as our skillful negotiation strategies can help you work toward
achieving your goals.
Georgia Property Division Law
Under Georgia law, all property acquired during the marriage is shared
marital property except for property received by individual gift or inheritance. Each spouse
is entitled to an equitable share of marital property regardless of which
party holds title to the property.
"Equitable" does not always mean equal, although it is often
50/50. Equitable means that the judge involved in your divorce case will
attempt to divide your marital assets and debt in a way that is fair to
both sides. For this reason, it is critical that you have a strong advocate
on your side — someone who can skillfully explain to the judge your
situation and your rights to important marital assets.
